Since the beginning of the year we have seen a continuous and substantial increase in the usage of Green Building Studio (GBS). To support the continuing increase in usage we have made some major improvements to the GBS underlining technology to significantly improved our GBS web service and its cloud infrastructure for fast simulation and substantively larger number of runs.
This recent release includes
- Vertical scale up our server equipment.
- New feature that controls multiple runs per server feature so that each app server can process at least 8x more without sacrificing any run time or performance factors.
- New functionality for ‘autoscaling’ that horizontally scales the system to spin up additional app servers to handle peak load when necessary, and scale down at other times to save you money.
We strongly encourage you to try out the system and tell us what you think about the performance. You can try out the performance of GBS directly through its web site or through the Energy Analysis features in Revit and Vasari. Do you see a change one way or another?
