File Replication Pro is enterprise-level software that moves data fast and efficiently. Most of us are just sort of staring at that sentence, trying to imagine what the point of that might be. Here it is:
Keep your outside sales force in synch -- every time they go online, new information from the main office (like price updates) will go to their computers, and new information from their computers (like new clients and new orders) will go from their computers to the main office.
Keep all collaborators in synch. As soon as you email a document, it's out of date. Instead, keep all versions of the document synced in real time -- that is, the document gets updated while everyone works on it, so everyone always sees the same thing.
Keep your data safe by having it automatically copied to a remote server -- that is, a machine that's in another place.
Now, some people didn't need those example. Tech guys know what file replication software is, and they know what it's for. They probably already have some, too. The new version of FRP is exciting for them because of all the tech-guy-friendly stuff it does:
You can write FRP jobs into command lines in your pre- or post-scripts.
You can import and export jobs in XML format.
You can schedule FRP jobs friom a central scheduler
You can let people start a job from a web page instead of giving them access to the server.
If you're not excited about this, then you're not a tech guy. You should still be excited about these characteristics of FRP:
It works across platforms -- that is, on Macs and PCs and for Linux and other systems, too.
It only copies the changes when it updates, so it won't slow down your whole computer while it's working.
You don't have to remember to do it -- you can set it up automatically.
If you just have small jobs and backups to do, then FRP isn't for you. The cost makes it unsuitable for home use, for example. However, if your IT department wants more control over data management -- or if you're a tech guy -- you'll love it.
File Replication Pro is software that keeps multiple computers, servers, and documents synchronized. It moves data back and forth when a file is updated at any workstation so that the file is identical at all workstations. This means that it offers backup of data in case of disaster or computer crashes, allows collaboration without unwieldy emailing of documents back and forth, and helps a distributed workforce keep all data updated.
The particular characteristics of File Replication Pro include bit-level replication, which means that it can copy only the changes in a file instead of having to copy the whole file, and cross-platform functionality, which means it can be used with Mac or Linux and other systems as well as Windows.
File Replication Pro is a product of Diasoft, a New York-based software company.
