Is Synch Framework right for my organisation? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I'm invetsigating different options for synchronising data between our geographically diverse organisation.

    Most of our organisation is based in NZ and is always online.
    We also have 20+ locations around the world which will periodically contact the network in NZ across a limited bandwidth line (sometimes only 64k).  The contact will be made approximately once per day for about an hour.

    The data being synchronised will be mostly stored in Sql Server 2008 and Pick UniVerse databases.

    The functionality across applications will almost always be WCF or Web Services (.Net Framework 3.5 & 4)

    The organisation is not too concerned with how often sunchronisation takes place.

    The organisation is very security conscious data transports across domains. 

    I am wondering how simple/complex it is to use the Sync Framework and whether we could consider this as a solution to our sync problems?

  • Hi Musiccrazy,

    First of all, thanks for considering to use SyncFx for your next solution.

    by reading your description above, I think the SyncFx would be a good fit to your scenario and requirement ( as such high level). briefly, the Sync Services for Ado.net V3.0 which is part of the SyncFx2.0 package will enable you to synchronize your data among different SqlServer ( or SQLCE ) endpoints. it supports Ntier sync(i.e. IIS as the mid tier ) which one of your request is.

    it is very simple to use as well and we have a lot of samples/tutorials published to help users to develop the solutions based on the SyncFx.

    you can get more details ( and the answers to address the other questions above ) here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/sync/bb887608.aspx

    Please let us know if you need more info on SyncFx. I will be interested in knowing details about your scenarios as well if you can share with us.
