Syncplify.me Server! v4: simplicity and power

Syncplify.me Server! version: 4.0.0+

Designing software for a large customer base is not an easy task. Some users want simplicity, very few and easy “clicks” to get their server up and running, no distractions, not too many things to look at, and that often sacrifices power. Other users (usually Enterprise customers) need to be able to perform complex deployments, integrated into complicated existing environments, they need to be able to configure every single tiny detail of the solution to fit into a much bigger architecture, and all that power often sacrifices simplicity.

When we designed Syncplify.me Server! v4 we have kept all of this in mind, and we have accomplished a design that “adapts” to the user’s needs and desires.

Syncplify.me Server! v3.x, with its HA (High Availability) deployment specific configuration was already ahead of the competition in many ways, but some of our customers needed something even more powerful. Therefore we have engineered our Syncplify.me Server! v4.0 to be our most reliable and heavy-load bearing version ever.

If you are running Syncplify.me Server! in a corporate environment, especially if you operate it in a mission critical environment, you may want to deploy it with high-availability (HA) and fault tolerance in mind.

The diagram here below, and the explanation that follows, are intended as a “first step” towards that goal. More complicated layouts are certainly possible, but this is a good starting point:
