MirrorSync reaches a milestone: One Million Successful Syncs!8/4/15 10:01 AM

MirrorSync is gaining momentum in a big way. We?ve been signing up customers and supporting them through successful deployments of MirrorSync for over three years. A little less than a year ago* we started to keep usage statistics, and today we?d like to share some highlights with you!



  • One million successful syncs - obviously this is a big number, and not just for Dr. Evil
  • Average size of synced databases is 41,843 records - that's a whole lot of order and invoice records collected from the field without a connection to FileMaker Server
  • Using the latest version of MirrorSync, on average, a sync takes about 3.9 seconds! That's gotta be faster than typing the FileMaker Server's address into the remote host field :)

We will keep making MirrorSync the fastest and easiest sync solution for FileMaker, all we ask from you is to help us get to the next milestone!



* We started to keep statistics on Nov. 15, 2014

FileMaker 12 and SuperContainer: A comparison4/16/12 11:38 AM

Solving this issue was the driving force behind the development of 360Works' SuperContainer, a server application that leverages FileMaker's Web Viewer to manage digital assets from your FileMaker interface. In this article we'll compare the unique features of both FileMaker Enhanced Container Fields and SuperContainer so that you can make an informed decision for your solution.
