CDE System Architecture

CDE System Architecture 

System Architecture (or I.T. Infrastructure) for Common Data Environments can be configured a number ways depending on team and stakeholder locations, collaboration and security requirements. 

While ISO 19650 compliance is important and having the system and standards in place, what is equally important is having the system architecture to be able to collaborate effectively and securely across networks.  

Redstack have unique CDE solutions that are ISO 19650 compliant with automation, analytics and user accessibility in mind so stakeholders can focus more on the project rather than compliance and data entry that can also adhere to company security standards. 

Three CDE’s (System Architecture) we propose are Local, Public Cloud and Private Cloud. We can also of course have a hybrid approach and have a blend of the above. 

The CDE Redstack propose consists of:  

  1. A centralised secure data management system to access project data for archiving, life-cycle management and reporting 
  2. A secure WIP (Work in Progress) environment for architects, designers and engineers
  3. An enterprise system for automating tasks such as deliverables, snapshots and moving files between folders and systems and providing BIM managers with analytics. 

Here’s are some diagrams of the three CDE variations: 

Local CDE 

Public Cloud CDE 

Private Cloud CDE 

The main difference between the three is the use of BIM 360 or Revit Server in providing a secure WIP environment. 

While Public Cloud is the most open and easiest to configure for WIP Projects, it may not adhere to company security policies. 

Redstack can deploy technology at a global or local scale, so if you are looking at implementing a CDE solution from a Technology Service Provider that are experts in BIM and IT, contact us to learn more.
