The Essential Guide to SharePoint Replication
Effective as SharePoint can be as a communication and collaboration tool for geographically separate offices, using SharePoint in that fashion also introduces a host of problems and conflicts. Those issues can include:
- Network bandwidth limitations
- Improper setup/configuration
- Difficulty keeping files and data on different SharePoint installations in sync
This guide examines SharePoint replication as a potential solution to these difficulties. Replication solves a number of them by keeping disparate files, data, and settings scattered across SharePoint sites synchronized and replicated. Several third party replication solutions exist.
