Sync times should be measured in seconds, not minutes.
MirrorSync 3 now available with faster speeds than ever before.
Now 2-4 times faster for client-to-server syncs and 6 times faster for server-to-server syncs. We recommend MirrorSync for up to 100 simultaneous syncs!
MirrorSync is much faster than traditional FileMaker scripting because it uses standard HTTP web communication to transfer pure record data, without loading any layouts or scripts.
Because MirrorSync never needs to connect as a guest of FileMaker Server at all, it doesn’t have the delay inherent in connecting to FileMaker Server over the internet. This means that syncs with no changes often finish in less than a second, and syncing a parent record with a its related line items usually takes less than 5 seconds.
One MirrorSync customer had this to say after seeing changes to about a dozen tables, including signature capture images, sync in 6 seconds between California and Virginia:
“You said yesterday that you are a "geek" about speed. Point taken!” --David Craycraft, FIT Mobile Software
Here are some benchmarks for syncing between an iPad running the 'Tasks' starter solution (19 fields) with FileMaker 13 in Atlanta, GA and a MirrorSync server running in Ashburn, Virginia:
Here are a few of the performance-related technologies used by MirrorSync to get the job done faster:
