SymmetricDS promises to sync your data, but how do you know it really worked? How do you really know 2 databases are in sync? Or, maybe you have well-meaning users that come along after the sync, changing data unexpectedly, and throwing production out of whack.

Dbcompare is slated for SymmetricDS 3.8, but if you watch closely, it’s fully included starting in SymmetricDS 3.7.30.

JumpMind had another successful trip to NRF in New York City last week. It was very nice to see some of our current SymmetricDS clients face to face and catch up with how the product is working as their data synchronization solution. We also had the opportunity to enjoy some of the fine dining in the city with a couple of our partners. It is always enjoyable to get the chance to sit down and discuss how we can work together and satisfy the data synchronization and integration needs of our clients.
