Metalogix Replicator for SharePoint 5.0 named KMWorld Trend-Setting Product for 2012
INDUSTRYBy BiztechAfrica - Sept. 26, 2012, 8:24 a.m.
Soarsoft Africa has announced that Metalogix Software’s Replicator for SharePoint 5.0 has been named a KMWorld “Trend-Setting Product” for 2012.
Replicator for SharePoint was selected from more than 700 products that were assessed by KMWorld’s judging panel of editorial colleagues, analysts, system integrators, vendors themselves, line-of-business managers and users.
“Each company whose product made the list of Trend-Setting Products in 2012 helped to define and enhance a market critically important to our readership by listening to and working with customers,” said Hugh McKellar, Editor in Chief, KMWorld Magazine. “Metalogix represented this commitment to innovation and their customers with the release of Replicator for SharePoint 5.0 and it is why they deserve inclusion on this prestigious list.”
“As more and more organisations adopt SharePoint for its collaborative features, the data volumes and access for remote sites in geographically dispersed organisations may become a challenge. As always Metalogix has a SharePoint solution that is a global leader by some distance in this space and we are very pleased to be able to deliver their solutions to our region. This is especially true for mining and retail operations who have far flung sites across the African continent and need to contend with very limited bandwidth often across expensive Satellite links.” says Chris Hathaway, Director at Soarsoft Africa.
The Metalogix Replicator for SharePoint synchronises SharePoint content across multiple, geographically-distributed SharePoint environments. For organisations with multiple SharePoint farms in different locations, or even at sea, the solution allows SharePoint administrators to connect distributed SharePoint content to ensure an entire organisation can work from the most current information. Metalogix Replicator for SharePoint provides for two-way data synchronization by replicating content back and forth between server farms, even if they are not identical or on different versions of SharePoint.
Replicator for SharePoint 5.0 features improved, patent-pending compression that reduces network overhead costs more than any other replication solution on the market. Replicator for SharePoint 5.0 also includes adaptive replication, which provides changing environments, especially military installations, with the fastest and most reliable access to their SharePoint content.
“On behalf of our 5,000 SharePoint customers, we are honoured to have Metalogix Replicator for SharePoint 5.0 named by KMWorld as one of the Trend-Setting Products for 2012,” said Steven Murphy, CEO of Metalogix. “For the release of Replicator for SharePoint 5.0, we set out to differentiate our solution from other SharePoint products with patent-pending features that address the need for real time synchronization across multi-server SharePoint infrastructures, locally or across the globe. We continue to create and develop breakthrough SharePoint solutions that enhance the use and performance of our customers’ SharePoint platform investment.”
