Built from the ground up and based on Microsoft technologies, Replicator has matured to fully support mission critical applications. Our customers use our products in a wide variety of business applications including disaster recovery, mobile platform data replication, and fully distributed fringe data networks. The use of Replicator varies as widely as the variety of SharePoint deployments. To meet the needs of this diverse customer base, Replicator is available in several editions, with additional support for replicating SharePoint look and feel features.
The Enterprise edition provides a complete feature set that is applicable to customers with mission critical, high volume replication requirements, including support for multiple processing servers, transaction logging, and programming APIs. This edition is ideal for WAN replication. It provides a heavy-duty version of Replicator which allows for scenarios like ship-to-shore Maritime replication, and Military Tactical SharePoint replication. It works ideally for global replication, allowing for a global mesh topology setup.
The Cross domain edition provides all of the features available in the Enterprise edition of Replication, with the addition of SFTP settings. The SFTP settings provide support for Cross Security Domain replication, which required communication with an intermediary server that does package inspection. This new transport method provide a secure method of transporting replicated content which is FIPS compliant.
The Standard edition provides customers with an ideal solution for geo-replication of content, and the perfect solution for an organization that has a global user base with a need for instant global availability of SharePoint content. Standard edition will enable you to do this with a simple hub-and-spoke replication environment setup.
Standard edition also includes support for the replication of look and feel settings and changes between the same major editions of SharePoint. For example, you can replicate list views from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2010 and from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint 2013. Standard edition also supports the live processing of workflows on multiple farms.
