TMCNet:  MirrorSync 2.1 Ships with New Features for FileMaker 13!

MirrorSync 2.1 Ships with New Features for FileMaker 13!

ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--

360Works announced MirrorSync 2.1 today, a free update with major improvements to speed, reliability, and ease of use. MirrorSync is the best way to use your FileMaker database on an iPad, iPhone (News - Alert), or laptop without a network connection. Work on your own offline database at the fastest possible speed, and sync your changes with FileMaker Server when you have working network access.

With this update, MirrorSync 2 is still completely free for a single offline device. Additional devices are priced as low as $50 each.

Major speed gains with FileMaker Pro and Go 13!

MirrorSync 2.1 is now much faster, especially with FileMaker Pro or Go 13. One customer saw his iPad sync times improve from 30 seconds to 6 seconds with this upgrade - 5 times faster!

Simplified contaner field syncing with FileMaker Pro and Go 13

MirrorSync 2.1 now uses standard HTTP networking to transmit all files stored as container data. With this new feature, mobile FileMaker Pro/Go users never need to connect as a guest of FileMaker Server! IT administrators will greatly appreciate this feature, as it does not require port 5003 access, making it firewall-friendly, proxy-friendly, and bandwidth-efficient.

Many, many improvements to reliability and sync accuracy

It's taken a lot of work, but we have resolved every single support issue. MirrorSync 2 is being used on a daily basis in countries around the globe for syncing everything from single-table systems with a few records to multi-file solutions with hundreds of thousands of records, and has been deployed on more than 50 new servers per month since launching in December.

Dozens of other improvements:

  • MirrorSync can now run on Linux while syncing with FileMaker Server on Mac or Windows
  • Added support for FileMaker Pro 10 and FileMaker Server 10
  • Exponentially faster conflict resolution for large numbers of records
  • Reduced disk space for internal sync data; added ability to manage disk space per device
  • Solved limitation of 64,000 max characters inherent in FileMaker Go
  • More multithreading for faster syncs
  • Better support for international numeric formats
  • Much better memory efficiency during very large server-to-server initial syncs
  • And many other improvements!
