Anyone who has been on a night time support rotation can relate to the 3 AM phone call that gets you groggily out of bed, has you fixing some simple, but important problem, and then leaves you staring at the ceiling by 4 AM wondering if you should just go into work, because you know you aren't getting back to sleep. All of the engineers in our office have been there, done that, and didn't like it very much. That's one of the reasons we focus so much on resilient operations for SymmetricDS including our "Hands Off" Recovery of data synchronization. "Hands Off" recovery is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. SymmetricDS has been built from the ground up to recover and keep databases in sync without manual intervention any time it possibly can.

At JumpMind we provide support services for a wide variety of customers across many industries. We enjoy working with our customers, learning about their synchronization scenarios, and answering any questions they may have. In all of our interactions, we've found that some customers have a real knack for making it easy to help them, while it's not as intuitive to others. In that spirit, here's JumpMind's top 3 ways to help us help you.

For most of our large clients where SymmetricDS is playing a mission critical role in their organization, our customers take advantage of SymmetricDS Pro's out of the box capabilities to be load balanced. While SymmetricDS does a great job with hands off recovery in cases of hardware or infrastructure failure, most clients want as little downtime as possible. They simply don't want a single point of failure in their synchronization scenario. The good news is, with SymmetricDS Pro, load balancing is simple and straight forward.

We have been on the road the last couple of weeks for the start of our SymmetricDS Pro "Roadshow". About a month ago in a planning session, we were thinking about the next big step for JumpMind. We knew we had a great product, a top notch services team to design and implement synchronization solutions, and great support and infrastructure in place to support these solutions, but we came to the conclusion that our sales and marketing efforts could be better.
