Infonic is delighted to report on the success of their involvement as part of the global Trident Warrior 2011 trial program.

As part of this program Infonic has been able to demonstrate a broad set of replication capabilities using their Geo-Replicator software platform. Infonic was able to demonstrate replication between Microsoft SharePoint servers, replicating Lotus Domino backup files, and other third-party anti-virus data files. All these demonstrations were conducted in the typical military maritime environment of highly restricted low bandwidth with intermittent connectivity. The trials were conducted on a live coalition SECRET Network.

During testing, it was established that updates to deployed Lotus Domino databases could be distributed using Geo-Replicator’s special compressed files that were under 0.5% of the original source content. A UK MoD technical source stated: “Infonic Geo replicator has been proven to provide impressive levels of compression on our operational databases and has allowed us to trial new techniques which if implemented could radically affect how we distribute classified data to deployed units.”

Infonic participated in the UK based trials throughout June in Portsmouth, United Kingdom,.
Lawrence Poynter, Product Director, commented, “We are indebted to the Trident Warrior team for giving us the chance to prove that our replication platform can move all types of data over challenging networks. Collaboration between military units in different organisations and time zones can be vastly enhanced by information systems which operate reliably in low bandwidth conditions.”
