We are pleased to invite our SQL Anywhere Panorama beta participants to try out an early version of our new Sybase Hosted Relay Server service.
The relay server is a new feature in SQL Anywhere that provides a number of significant benefits. The relay server:
- Facilitates communication between mobile devices and mobile middleware servers in a way that easily integrates with existing corporate firewall configurations and policies.
- Provides a mechanism to enable a load-balanced and fault-tolerant environment for mobile middleware servers.
- Delivers a common communication architecture for mobile devices communicating with mobile middleware servers (MobiLink or with other Sybase middleware servers such as Afaria or OneBridge).
The Sybase Hosted Relay Server service is intended to ease the development of mobile applications and to simplify the process for customers wishing to evaluate Sybase software (SQL Anywhere, Afaria, OneBridge), especially where clients are sending data over public wireless networks. You can subscribe to the hosted relay server service and then easily synchronize data from your mobile clients to your MobiLink server without requiring your own IT department to install anything or open any holes in your corporate firewall. When you are ready to deploy your application, you can then install the relay server in your own corporate infrastructure.
