FileMaker for the Enterprise and Synchronization

If you need to have off-line access to your FileMaker database OR you want to set up multiple servers to support your worldwide FileMaker Team, you need Server Replication. This can be accomplished with synchronization!

The FileMaker Training Videos provided by Richard Carlton Consulting are an excellent resource to the FileMaker community. They do a great job of dynamically explaining a diverse level of FileMaker development skills, providing the latest industry news, and showcasing a plethora of tools available to FileMaker developers and users.

Additionally, their product "FM Starting Point" is an extremely helpful FileMaker template which works so well with 360Works MirrorSync that Jesse Barnum used it as his main solution to demonstrate MirrorSync 6 at the 2019 FileMaker Developer Conference! FM Starting Point Enterprise is modified to work with 360Works' MirrorSync, which helps achieve this replication process you will see in the videos below.

Today, we wanted to share the videos from 5 days of livestreams with Jesse Barnum (President of 360Works) and Richard Carlton (President of Richard Carlton Consulting), featuring FileMaker for the Enterprise and 360Works MirrorSync 6!

In case you missed the new major version release, MirrorSync 6 is strongly focused on server-to-server sync improvements, which can be used for clustering, load balancing, and disaster recovery. This was possible in version 5, but it was not as easy for developers to make changes. MirrorSync 6 ships with automatic file transfers between servers, automatic version updates between servers, safer syncs, better handling of large files, easy migration, no longer requires Java to be pre-installed, allows for unlimited tables, leverages new FileMaker features for faster container field syncs, and much more!
