Mobile users can carry an offline copy of their database with them on their iPhones and iPads, or home/remote users can use bidirectional sync with their laptop and desktop computers to work offline on a fast local copy, which caches their data and solves WAN performance and connectivity problems. To keep all the data in sync, simply run the MirrorSync script and all changes will be transferred between the offline copy and FileMaker Server to bring them up to date.
MirrorSync has been designed to be very simple to configure. There are no plug-ins required, and no scripts to write - the MirrorSync configuration utility writes them for you! Setup typically takes less than 30 minutes, and requires no advanced FileMaker knowledge.
360Works' MirrorSync works with both FileMaker 11 and 12, and can run on an iPad, iPhone, or computer running Mac OS X or Windows since there are no plugins required. After installing MirrorSync on your FileMaker Server and running the simple cross-platform configuration utility, MirrorSync dynamically generates a synchronization script that users run whenever they're ready to sync. Users can delete, add, or modify records and simply run the sync script whenever they want to update their offline copy of the database with FileMaker server. It even works with related data, and does not require you to change anything about how you generate unique IDs.
