Synchronization

Use

Synchronizing database instances involves comparing data from multiple database instances. If data in one database instance is changed, these changes are replicated in the other database instances.

If two database instances change the same data at the same time, the system executes an automatic conflict handling. The client database instances can be offline in the meantime. Optionally, you can define filters for the data.

For synchronization, you need a message server with a message database instance.
