  • 30. Data Management • Standard Solution o Separate different tasks into different databases o Simpler structure and AL-code • Performance Optimation o Better performance when users are on separate servers/ Load Balancing o Better performance when AL-code is simpler o Less keys needed – only need keys that support one solution, not several
  • 31. Why Choose Replicator • Replicator Ensures Maximum Up-time o In case the line breaks down, then it will not affect the user, he will still be able to continue his daily work. Replicator will continue as soon as the line is restored o Reducing the number of employees involved, if the Main Server breaks down. The distanced user will still be able to continue his daily work, because he has his local database (for instance on Laptop) or the Branch Server to work on • Replicator Ensures High Flexibility o Laptop users can work off-line anywhere • Performance Optimization
  • 32. Replicator 5.0 • Replicator 5.0 – On Demand Solution on • Functionality like the Replicator Additional Benefits • Subscription-based -> lower end-price • Easy to set-up -> no need to setup vpn connection • Easy to monitor and maintain -> Configuration via web-browser • No need to purchase extra NAV objects • Possibility to use NAS Server (Access to C/AL Code)
