Ilesfay’s Data Replication Improves Speed, Collaboration and Efficiency for Geographically Dispersed Work Groups

ANDOVER, Mass. and Munich, Germany – February 23, 2012 – Aras®, the leading enterprise open source Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software solution provider, today announced the availability of Ilesfay cloud-based replication technology for Aras Innovator®. Ilesfay Replication identifies and transfers only differences in datasets, significantly reducing the time and bandwidth needed to transmit data between PLM vaults, making it an ideal choice for high revision design environments.

Ilesfay Replication follows the same functional rules as Aras Innovator, making it a highly functional add-on for new Aras Innovator implementations as well as those that are already in place. Ilesfay Replication can be used to improve remote vault mirroring and synchronization, establish site cache architectures and onboard new locations or systems. For more information please visit

“If you want to make better use of your current broadband lines, reduce bandwidth usage altogether and increase the ROI of your infrastructure, Ilesfay Replication for Aras Innovator is great way to maximize efficiency in the data transfer process,” said Chris McLennan, CEO of Ilesfay.

“As product design becomes simultaneously more collaborative and geographically dispersed, solutions such as Ilesfay’s become increasingly critical. Ilesfay offers Aras users valuable cloud-based replication, collaboration and storage options that can optimize and equalize today’s complex, disparate product development environments. We are excited to work with Ilesfay and partners like them to ensure that Aras users can take full advantage of the most advanced technologies available,” said Peter Schroer, President of Aras.
