Distributed Database System
MineLink utilizes the latest database synchronization techniques and mobile technology framework to minimize the amount of bandwidth required between the onboard equipment and the server. To minimize the dependence to server connectivity, the most important system decisions such as activity changes, cycle detection, status changes and operator login are stored and processed in real-time with the high capacity onboard computer installed on each piece equipment.
By using the Microsoft distributed database framework to handle the onboard and server database replication, the SNCTechnologies MineLink framework is very powerful and highly flexible. The Microsoft distribution database also has database conflict handling, change tracking and built-in support for filters to only replicate certain tables which assist in minimizing the communications workload.
