Re: Important Autodesk Upgrade Policy Change

I think people are underestimating the problems with running acad remote from some Adesk server.

The attempts I have seen were not even close to the performance of running local.

Plus the problem of no internet connection situations.

There has been no discussion of customization handling, and one could argue that is the main reason we use AutoCad.

On top of that, we have been burned so many times by Autodesk on various things, the LAST thing we want is them in control of our production.

Autodesk can play around, but its all talk until they make major improvements, and can show we have the control needed to run real jobs.

Its not just a matter of setting up servers on the SaaS provider end.  There's the entire infrastructure between them right down to the individual users.  As companies finally start migrating from older XP systems to Win 7 they are also using it as an opportuity for updating their hardware and other IT infrastructure as well.  So it may be a possibility in another couple of years in major population centers for large-scale companies, which are the only ones I can see seeing more than a break-even benefit.
