How fast is the Kenesto Drive?

In today's fast-paced digital landscape, time is of the essence. We crave efficiency, speed, and seamless workflow experiences. From our tests on a 220MB SolidWorks file with 154 components, we found the following file open times. The tests were executed with consumer-grade internet, approximately 200Mb/s down, 20Mb/s up. Nothing beats opening a file from your local hard drive.  This works well for the lone operator who doesn’t have to share any data until the project is completed and for whom...

What is Kenesto?

Kenesto is a robust cloud-based product document management system.

Kenesto was designed by engineers for engineers and designers, delivering a robust solution for small- and medium-sized companies, especially those working in a diverse ecosystem with many types of documents. With the Kenesto Drive service on a PC, CAD and other applications work directly with the cloud documents just like a local drive, always ensuring access to the most current document. Kenesto provides the necessary tools needed to easily share, view, collaborate with external users, manage permissions, create versions, and lock documents for day-to-day work. Kenesto provides engineers and designers the power, simplicity, and flexibility beyond consumer cloud storage solutions such as Dropbox, and a great alternative to complex and expensive traditional PDM systems.

“Kenesto stands out as a leader in forward-thinking online engineering data management. We now have a secure, cloud-based solution for product document management, collaboration and version control, accessible from wherever we are in the world. On top of that, the Kenesto Drive feature allows our team to interact with our data as though it were a mapped server drive.”

Josh Adams, PE, Founding Principal, Apollo Engineering Design Group

“Kenesto is more than a collaboration tool – it’s fully-customizable to work with your processes and designs, and it provides a virtual workspace to store, view, and manage your data.”

–Elise Moss, Senior Mechanical/Thermal Engineer

“Kenesto has helped us structure our communication flow so that all involved can see the status of every campaign at a glance.”
