SyncService as replacement for Messaging Service? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Could SyncServices be used as a viable replacement for Windows Messaging in some cases?  For example, we have a server and 3 client computers in our office.  We'd like the 3 client computers updated from the server the instant the server has new data to provide.  This is usually small amounts of data (a few hundred kbs), but would SyncServices be scalable to be updating clients constantly, as in a publish/subscriber messaging scenario?  Is there benchmarking numbers on the scalability of this service?

    Thanks!

  • The SyncServices is not intended to replace the windows messenging, but the scenario you described does fit to the targeted scenarios for the syncServices.

    Regarding with the scalalibity numbers, we don't have a whitepaper or published data yet. but our tests with 300 clients with concurrent sync on server as 200+, shows the sync services scales up well with our data size.
