GUILDFORD, England, March 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
iOra, the world's leading provider of high performance SharePoint replication solutions, has been successfully tested by the US 2011 Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration (CWID). The CWID is a US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff-directed annual event that engages cutting-edge information technology, focusing on operational shortfalls identified by combatant commanders and government agencies.
The results for the 2011 CWID demonstrated that iOra's SharePoint replication technology was fully compliant with the US DOD IA Policy. In addition the testing demonstrated that iOra:
- was easy to install
- enabled the simple and straightforward replication of shared portals
- its functionality for manual and automatic updates reported zero failures
- that 100% of data was the same after replication based on users verification
- easily replicated and stored data
Currently, cross-site access is often limited by the network, units are forced to work in silos, and operational effectiveness is threatened. The iOra patented SharePoint replication solution allows users to quickly access content that is local to the user, even when there is unreliable reach back capability to headquarters, and also allow the bi-directional transfer of information. The trial demonstrated a live synchronization over a simulated satellite link of typical operational data from a simulated headquarters environment to a deployed user.
"iOra provides Microsoft SharePoint replication solutions to the world's largest military organizations including the US Navy, the US Army and the UK's MOD. iOra SharePoint replication technology allows the changes made to huge volumes of information to be rapidly synchronized to remote servers or laptops to facilitate continuous Microsoft SharePoint, and file-based access to the latest mission critical information. Military users can actively collaborate to jointly manage mission plans within an operational environment as well as deliver duty of care and training packages using networks that have limited bandwidth and intermittent availability such as satellite, HF, UHF."*
iOra's patented technology works in environments where the bandwidth is as low as 2kbps with over 65,000 machines currently licensed to perform iOra replication. Offering both server to server and server to laptop solutions, iOra is used extensively in the commercial and public sectors including over 20 military organizations to replicate data. iOra has been replicating data for customers for over 10 years across a broad range of industries including shipping, financial services, consumer packaged goods, mining, and energy.
"The CWID tested the functionality and capabilities of iOra's SharePoint replication solution to the limit. Operating under very challenging conditions iOra's technology achieved excellent results and demonstrated its fitness for purpose. This demonstration gives customers, who are looking to replicate their SharePoint intranets and extranets across low bandwidths and to offline users, a very high degree of confidence in the capabilities of iOra," commented John Thompson, CEO, iOra.
