The Synchronization Manager is a collection of various programs and scripts with which you can synchronize the data of a master database instance with the data of one or more client database instances. The data of the client database instances is generally a subset of the data of the master database instance. All database instances involved in the synchronization can simultaneously read, update and change data.
Since data is transferred asynchronously in a synchronization, the database instances whose data is being synchronized do not have to be online simultaneously. This means that mobile applications can also use the procedure.
The Synchronization Manager can be used on all operating systems supported by the database system.
The Synchronization Manager is a component of the MaxDB software. For information on where to find MaxDB software and how to install it, see the Download section; and in the Installation Manual, see Installing the Synchronization Manager.
