Revit Server

Morning,

 

I would like to know the difference between a Revit server and a revit accelerator. 

Which one of these are better to have. We haver a server on site but our main office is a 100 miles away 

and we were told to use an accelerator instead of setting up our server as a Revit server.

 

My question is what is better an Accelerator or setting up our server as a Revit server?

 

Thank you

Chris

Hi,

 

It depends on what you want to accomplish.

 

A Revit Server Host is hosting the shared models

A Revit Server Accelerator is acting a 'local' cache for a remote Revit Server Host

 

- If you are going to work on the same projects in both offices, a Revit Server with the Accelerator-role would be the best choice in the remote office.

- If you are working on different projects, a Revit Server Host in both offices might be the best choice

 

Also note that a Revit Server can have multiple roles as well (i.e. you could have a Revit Server with both Host and Accelerator roles)......
