SpecTec Launches AMOS Replicator

press release
Friday, November 25, 2011

One of the main issues when dealing with remote Databases, is the replication of data from the remote site to the office site.


SpecTec has always been extremely specialized in Replicating Databases, and was the first one to invent a methodology which would replicate only data which had changed, while most competitors would replicate entire data files.
With time and with the advent of SQL Databases, Data Replication has become a hot issue: we needed to allocate maximum local flexibility while allowing Data integrity to be maintained. It was not an easy task, and we could see that with the exponential growth not only of our customers and sites, but also of the usage of the AMOS software and the relevant data, the task was going to become very complex. We thus decided to completely redesign our Replication engine. After 4 years of efforts and testing, we are proud to introduce REPLICATOR, the Terminator of all Replication systems on this Planet.


Replicator is the absolute State-of-the-Art replication engine: it can replicate any data, from any system to any system. It could be used to replicate data from any software on board to any software ashore. Its power is limitless.
The need to gather operational information from remote sites will now no longer be a crucial issue for a company with offices located in multiple sites. The Maritime and Offshore industries no longer have the further complication of obtaining data from vessels/platforms often beyond the reach of land-based communication protocols.
 

As stated, SpecTec has always provided the means to send data to and from various sites, but AMOS Replicator is the most comprehensive tool yet, aimed to manage this procedure more easily and with maximum customisation. It is a very flexible product, suitable for every running database! The AMOS Replicator (AROR) application consists of a suite of programs that allow users to install and configure the software, import and export data, monitor the import and export processes, and survey the data replication history.


AMOS Replicator is a software application designed to resolve problems arising from importing data with missing references. It is completely developed using Microsoft.NET Framework 3.5 and suitable for many DBMS vendors (e.g. MS SQL, Oracle, Sybase - AMOS Replicator supplies the ability to connect to different versions of various DBMS’s, as well as to assorted database schema). AMOS Replicator provides the ability to send and receive data via several unique data transfer methodologies.


This flexibility is made possible by providing “rules” external to the application that handle the communication between the application and the database, and the application and the data transfer methodology.  These rules can be easily duplicated or versioned based on the user’s business strategy. The related updates are automatically registered by both the involved databases. AMOS Replicator’s tasks include Data Capture, Data Packaging, File Splitting, File Posting, and Sending.


File Splitting or “splitting and joining files” is an uncommon function for such software. Replicator can split the file to be sent into predefined maximum sizes (defined by users) and then reassemble it into its original size at the destination. This way, large files can be sent easily, without reducing their quality and size.
