The Autodesk® Revit® Server Extension helps geographically dispersed teams more easily collaborate on projects of varying size and complexity. Web-based services help keep teams coordinated as they work on a single project from separate locations.

The Autodesk Revit Server Extension helps you to:
  • Work more effectively as a single project team over a distributed wide area network (WAN) with higher performance and efficiency
  • Maintain a seamlessly integrated collection of Revit central models on a single server that team members can access from local servers
  • Easily manage products on Revit central server using the web-based Revit Server Administrator tools
  • Benefit from built-in redundancy in case of WAN connectivity loss
This Subscription Advantage Pack consists of two separate components: an application update, Revit 2011 SAP, and a server component, called Revit Server 2011. An installation of Revit Server may function as a local server or a central server. However this document does not draw any distinction between the two, as the installation and removal requirements are essentially the same for both.

Revit Server 2011
Systems hosting Revit Server 2011 must have:
    • Microsoft Windows Server® 2008, 64 bit (not 2008 R2)
    • Microsoft IIS 7.0
    • Microsoft .NET 3.5 SP1
Refer to the Revit Sever Installation Guide supplemental documentation for more detail on system prerequisites.
