Sharing Large GIS/GEO Projects Between Remote Offices
Posted on 2014-01-28
We have GIS users in TX, and GIS users in ND, both need access to the same projects, and both want to see this data natively (local/primary), as though they were all in the same office.
DFS can't handle the load, as multiple GB individual files are updated too often to replicate without contention.
Video feedback for GIS apps is crucial, so most RDP type solutions are DOA...
XenApp/Desktop seems like the only way to get them all to the data...with descent video performance, but it presents other problems, as they tie local data into their projects on a daily basis, so accessing the Citrix server in ND doesn't help me if I need to load data that's in TX every hour, which essentially passes the buck on the issue.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
