|Video: Sharing Data with Multiple Offices||
Use the SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional system to replicate your vaulted files and database information from a central location, keeping distributed design teams up to date, collaborating and working efficiently, whether in a central location or at multiple sites around the world. Take advantage of multi-site replication capabilities to synchronize files and databases to multiple remote servers, ensuring everyone has access to the latest version or revision without impeding performance. You can even tie replication into your electronic workflows. As users complete tasks, SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional automatically issues notifications to the right people on the appropriate teams with hyperlinks to perform on demand replication.
Key multi-site replication capabilities include:
File Vault Replication Capabilities:
Localized File Access
Quickly and efficiently access even large CAD files locally, using replicated file servers, without long delays in response time.
Schedule multi site replication among servers during off hours when WAN traffic is low. Easily configure replication schemes to maximize response times, such as including only certain areas of a vault needed at remote sites, or replicating only the latest version of a file.
Initiate on-demand replication to your local server just by accessing the file. New files and versions are available to users even if the files haven’t been synchronized with their local server. Download or access the file version you want at any time.
Database Replication Capabilities:
Multiple Secondary Read Only Databases
Using the power of Always On Availability Groups in Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise, SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional can direct read only database operations like vault searching and browsing, to local replicated databases to dramatically increase performance in high latency environments.
Synchronous or Asynchronous Replication Scheme
Database replication schemes can be defined as either synchronous or asynchronous depending on whether the replication is being used for server load balancing in low latency environments (synchronous) or for increasing performance in high latency environments (asynchronous).
