360Works MirrorSync is an easy-to-use data replication tool that quickly and seamlessly syncs FileMaker Server, SQL, and Oracle databases. Sync FileMaker Go to Server, or FileMaker Server in any combination of our supported database technologies.
MirrorSync, the award winning synchronization tool from 360Works, has been updated to MirrorSync 2! MirrorSync syncs FileMaker and SQL databases to mobile devices, computers, or database servers, and includes these great new features:

Now, keep all of your databases in sync, even if they aren’t in FileMaker! Avoid slow ESS shadow tables, complex nightly FTP batch scripts, or finicky ODBC drivers, and instead work with a speedy local database requiring no additional setup for the end user. Sync with any combination of two: MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, generic JDBC database, and FileMaker Server. FileMaker Server to FileMaker Server even supports container data!
Syncs can be triggered manually, or set to run on a schedule you specify. Conflicts are automatically merged at a field level, but if a field is modified in both databases, you can select pre-defined rule sets to determine which is the winner, or be notified by email when this occurs.
MirrorSync 2 gives you complete control over the mobile sync process. You decide whether to distribute an exact copy of your server-hosted file, or design a separate file optimized for mobile devices and use MirrorSync’s simple drag and drop field mapping to match everything up. Deploy files easily with a download link to make mobile file distribution a snap. A new customizable FileMaker script lets you easily control which records get synced to each mobile device, as well as any extra actions to take when a sync runs.
New conflict resolution will automatically merge users’ changes to separate fields in the same record. If there is still conflicting data, we’ve provided an all new interface to pick and choose whose information is correct, or change the information right from the conflict screen. In addition, developers can specify during configuration whether end users should resolve conflicts themselves, only by administrators, or automatically based on rule sets.
Syncing is now lightning fast overall, and allows for multiple devices to sync at the same time. Some operations, like writing changes to FileMaker Server, are 20 times faster than MirrorSync 1.5. Our testing shows write speeds of 160 records per second for FileMaker server-to-server syncs, and even faster than that for SQL databases. For large record sets, deletion scanning is potentially hundreds of times faster. We’ve tightened up the container syncs, the deletion scans, and much more to provide the fastest and best sync experience for your users. Offline file distribution couldn’t be easier: The re-written download link feature of MirrorSync lets you email your users a simple URL that downloads a highly compressed version of the database, even on iOS.
Using MirrorSync, mobile users can carry an offline copy of their database with them on their iPhones and iPads and sync FileMaker Go to FileMaker Server. 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 around 30 minutes, and requires no advanced FileMaker knowledge.
360Works MirrorSync works with FileMaker 11, 12, and 13 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.
Configuration is a snap with MirrorSync 2! MirrorSync writes the sync script for you automatically, and does not require any plug-ins. Our signature guided process provides a drag and drop interface for mapping fields between disparate databases. To show how easy it is to set up and configure MirrorSync, we’ve posted this setup tutorial video which walks through the entire process to get a database syncing in just 12 minutes.

"I want to let you know what an absolute joy it was setting up and using MirrorSync 2.0. Among many things to praise are the cleaner interface - the improved error capture/reporting helped me identify two issues immediately and we were up and running just as quickly. 2.0 is working perfectly!" — Jesse Wright, Database Solutions Developer at Cultural Resource Analysts, Inc.
"Just wanted to thank you more formally for the great job you did presenting last night at our user group meeting. Everyone there was wowed by your new MirrorSync product, and especially by the elegant setup you’ve devised! " —Debi Rubel, FullCity Consulting
"Ace product & demo as usual- very elegant" —Chris Gauthier
"I must congratulate you wholeheartedly on the excellent user interface for set up and integration. I have never seen one better - not even close, in the many years I have been using plugins (and this is not even a plugin!!)" —Adrian Simpson, Bluewing Development
"I’m very impressed with how Sam Barnum & Co at 360Works have made offline computing SO simple. Kudos for MirrorSync from 360Works."—Arild Schonberg
"We’ve been using our contact manager and adding contacts and estimates, and the sync seems to be working very well. I was surprised at how fast it was on the laptop and the iPad - much much faster than we’ve experienced before. And the new data is in there." —Scott Davis, Planet Pre Pro
"I have a very happy client using MirrorSync. He has been using it all day and it has not skipped a beat. They have a ridiculously slow internet connection managed by the office building... Using a local FileMaker file is a HUGE improvement for their daily tasks." —Phil Baker, Intritec Pty Ltd
"We are syncing 21 tables in our solution with MirrorSync. It is a combination of 16 core data tables with 5 join tables. There are roughly 750,000 records in those tables. I have been updating my iPad every few days and it has been working very well." —Paul Costanzo, Recruiting Pro Software
"I am a new user to FileMaker and FileMaker Server, less than 60 days with FMPro12 and less than a week with server. I leased a virtual server with the guys at Triple8, and I downloaded your plug-in and followed the directions and was syncing my first table within 30 minutes!! Thanks for a great product!" —Tom at AMSWin Software
Please note that Triple8 does not provide MirrorSync as a hosted service, but virtual machines leased from Triple8 may have MirrorSync installed on them. MirrorSync does not require a plug-in.
"We are selling the heck out of MirrorSync ! I don’t think we have sent out a proposal in the last month that did not include it as an option for the solution. " —Tim Neudecker, Kyo Logic
"Just a quick word of thanks and praise (once again) for your tech support team. I’m rolling out a MirrorSync implementation for a new client and my test setup and configuration was flawless. When I went to implement at the client location I ran into several roadblocks (of course).
I worked on the phone with Will yesterday and the experience was fantastic. He hooked me up with a new installer very quickly and then went above and beyond in helping me troubleshoot the server to play nicely with MirrorSync. The result was a VERY impressed customer who commented to me how important excellent service is for building loyalty.
I always have a great experience with your team, and as a result, I never hesitate to recommend 360 Works products to my customers." —Jason Mundok, Jason Mundok LLC
"I just wanted to say a big thank you for your support. I will do some MirrorSync trials tomorrow and if all goes well I will purchase the license. I am very impressed with your work over there at 360Works. " —Matt Roberts

We thought you’d like that. MirrorSync 2 is FREE for syncing a single FileMaker Pro or Go device with FileMaker Server. If you have a remote employee who needs fast access on their laptop, or if the boss wants instant access to the company sales reports on his iPad, you’ll pay nothing to use MirrorSync. Additional mobile device licenses range from $50-$95 depending on quantity, and server-to-server syncs cost between $500 and $1,600 depending on what type of database servers you’re syncing. By popular request, we’ve also added an unlimited device licensing option for a flat $4,000. MirrorSync is included with the 360Works Portfolio Bundle, which means that current subscribers will receive an additional 10 devices (a $595 value) in addition to the free device license. If you purchased MirrorSync 1, you can purchase an upgrade for $245 to retain your additional configurations and devices. Any devices or solutions you purchased will carry over as FileMaker Server - FileMaker Go configurations.
We’re confident you’ll be able to configure MirrorSync quickly and easily. However, if you want to have us integrate MirrorSync your solution for you, it will take approximately an hour at our rate of $165. We’ll take a look at your files first, and if the integration will take more than an hour we’ll contact you. Contact us to learn more and get started!
