Geo-Replicator for SharePoint by iOra

Product Summary

Developer

Geo-Replicator for SharePoint gives remote, mobile and satellite users, in low and no bandwidth environments, improved access to Microsoft SharePoint and other web applications. It enables branch offices workers to access central SharePoint content at LAN speeds over a WAN connection - overcoming latency and bandwidth issues.

Geo-Replicator provides secure and scalable replication between servers across a WAN - allowing remote users to access central content at LAN speeds.

Geo-Replicator uses patented compression technology to dramatically increase the performance of data networks that suffer limited bandwidth, latency and periodic disconnection.

Portals, web applications, content and data can all be replicated to remote servers using unique compression and web virtualization technologies. Terabytes of data are efficiently replicated over a WAN giving remote sites rapid access to web applications.

Infonic Geo-Replicator can be configured to suit the client requirement:

SharePoint Server Replication 1 Way:
Provides portal content replication and team sites one way to remote servers for LAN access by remote users.

SharePoint Server Replication 2 Way:
Provides replication of remote SharePoint content to other servers as well as supporting writable replicas of SharePoint document libraries.

Big access benefits

For us iora/infonic was the only option. We are a large international corporate. SharePoint simply wouldnt have succeeded for our international offices and partners - or for our consultants without Infonics help. For smaller organisations who dont need to provide an Infonic standard full spec offline portal, there are much cheaper alternatives you should consider that give you document lists etc... offline.

For the server to server side we couldnt find anything with the depth or track record with huge clients like the navy that Infonic has. Again, for us price wasnt the main decision criteria - portal performance at internation locations was. There are cheaper options out there for less demanding / international users.

It will be interesting to see how long Infonic manage to maintain their significant technical leadership in this space. I hear MS have dropped plans to build Infonic level replication into SP so the field is wide open for a competitor.

Product Reviews

Pros
Having used infonic (previously iOra) sharepoint replication for four years across out enterprize. Business consultants benefit massively from having the corporate portal available on the laptop. The look/feel is exaclty consistent with our online portal - so retraining isnt required - great aspect of solution. We have now just started using infonic's s2s replication for local sharepoint portals for a number of international offices. The deployment has been fast and simple. The infonic technical folks were great and have jumped on planes when required. It is delivering exactly the bandwidth efficiencies they promised us. Very impressed all round with these guys. They came recommended - and I would recommend them.
Cons
Quite a bit more expensive than the alternatives.

It works.....in theory

This application is costly and never worked as advertised.

Product Reviews

Pros
If it only worked as advertised
Cons
Support is questionable. Seemed like they used our portal to beta test their latest version.
We never got 100% of our site collections replicated.
