MobiLink characteristics

MobiLink is designed for synchronization systems with the following requirements:

  • Large numbers of remote databases   MobiLink is designed to support large numbers of remote databases. It can handle tens of thousands of simultaneous synchronizations.

  • Occasionally connected   MobiLink supports databases that are occasionally connected or indirectly connected to the network on which the server is running.

  • Consolidated databases supported   MobiLink supports virtually any type of data store as the central data source. The remote data stores must be SQL Anywhere or UltraLite databases. The schema of the remote sites can be different from that of the consolidated database because you control the synchronization process by writing scripts.

  • Flexible synchronization schedule   Applications can connect and synchronize at intervals of seconds, minutes, hours, or days.
