SureTrend CloudSync was developed to address the need of one site (i.e. company location/facility) seeing all other connected sites’ result data without them being able to see anything except their own data. This is perfect for administrators or managers to manage data across their entire organization. They can see all data from every site privately by having each site upload their results to a centralized database only the administrator(s) can view.
The latest version of SureTrend CloudSync can be downloaded here.
Upon installation you will have a shortcut to the Profile Editor on the Desktop and a system service called SureTrendCloudService installed that runs in the background to upload results. The Profile Editor only needs to be ran when new profiles are created or current profiles are edited. After a profile is setup SureTrendCloudService will take care of the rest in the background not impeding the users’ ability to continue working or going about their normal activities. More information on these two applications are below:
Allowing the creation and managing of profiles. A profile contains a source destination pointing to a SureTrend 4 database located in either a .SDF file or SQL Server and a target destination the data will be uploaded. The target destination can either be another .SDF file, SQL Server database, or a SureTrend Cloud account.
For more information on using the Profile Editor view this document.
A windows service that runs every so often (default 30 minutes, but can be changed) going through each profile, validating the source and target database connections and attempting to send the associated source data to the target. It will only send data that has either been added or modified since the latest successful sync. Any failed connections or data transmission errors will write to the logs which can be seen in the “Logs” tab of the profile editor.
Important: SureTrendCloudService does not have its first run until 20 minutes after installation so wait 20 minutes before seeing your data in your centralized database.
