Security is of particular importance for cloud solutions. For Deutsche Telekom and T-Systems, data security is a strategic topic of high priority. In Telekom Security (T-Sec), 1,400 employees work exclusively on security-related topics. For you as a customer, this means that you can count on maximum security with the PLM Cloud. Both in terms of technical security standards and architecture, and due to the fact that the PLM Cloud is subject to German law and data security standards. Because our data centers are located in Germany.
In addition, the PLM cloud infrastructure is TISAX Level 3 certified (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange).
The PLM Cloud architecture ensures that no other customers have access to your data. Transmitted and secured data is always encrypted. Your data is secure in the PLM cloud.Read article
This depends on the detailed usage scenario:
For cloud based graphical CAD workplaces, we recommend 10 Mbits for the first workplace, + additionally 1 Mbits for further ones. The latency is important for the user experience, up to 30 ms is excellent, up to 50 ms is good, up to 100 ms acceptable for sporadic use, > 100 ms is not recommended. To have good results we supply workplaces only from a datacenter in the respective world region (EU, America, ASIA, ...).
For CAE workplaces we recommend two times the above mentioned bandwidth values of CAD workstations. Background is the use of grid surface visualization versus shaded surface visualization in CAD, which requires nearly complete image updates each time a model is moved and grid lines sweep over the screen. The latency requirement for CAE is comparable to CAD.
For hpc usage the bandwidth determines the velocity of batch up- and downloads and therefore is part of the overall turnaround time of the jobs. Latency is no issue. Therefore the hpc only use mode is technically possible for worldwide usage today (legal availability restrictions to be considered separately)
We can provide nearly all relevant software for your process. If it is not already listed in our service description, we will do a technical compatibility test on our platform, and you have to start with the “bring your own license” mode. We might then check with the software vendor if this software can be included in our standard portfolio and ideally offered in SaaS mode later.Read article
PLM Cloud is fully available in the European Union and EFTA countries.
For worldwide deployment, please contact the PLM Cloud Team for a detailed review. The recommendation will depend on the mode of use (VDI or HPC only), country of use, bandwidth and latencies, software required and legal aspects.
In the medium term, additional world regions could be added to the PLM Cloud for full use as part of the worldwide rollout plan.
There are two ways how hpc jobs can be submitted:
- If working on our cloud based VDI workstation, you submit the job via a command line “tsub” in a cmd or gitbash window.
- If working on your local workstation for pre- and postprocessing, you submit and control the jobs via our hpc web portal client.
