Aras Technology

Open Architecture

Openness is critical to the long term success and sustainability of your PLM/PDM system. To enable true interoperability, portability and extensibility we provide an open architecture which features open software, an open data model, open interfaces and use of open Web standards.

Aras is an n-tier, model-based service oriented architecture (SOA) built entirely on open web standards composed of web clients, application servers(s), database(s) and file vaulting servers(s) based on standard Internet protocols including HTTP/HTTPS, XML and SOAP.

Our open approach also leverages Microsoft products: SQL Server, .NET and Windows Server.

Learn about our commitment to the ProSTEP iViP Code of PLM Openness (CPO).

Secure

Security

Aras technology has security built-in from the ground up. In fact the Aras security, authentication and data access rights model was defined to meet the needs of our defense industry customers to satisfy ITAR and other military security compliance requirements.

On-Premise Or In The Cloud

And with Aras you have deployment options - in the data center, in the cloud or in a hosted SaaS environment. With Aras in the cloud you can achieve new levels of scalability, performance and collaboration. The Aras architecture partitions easily for a wide variety of deployment scenarios, giving you the flexibility to deploy in a traditional data center, onto cloud infrastructure or in a hybrid configuration.
