(MKS Product Whitepaper) There are unique challenges associated with enabling teams in multiple geographic locations to collaborate on the same software projects. A common myth is that replication is the answer. To this end, MKS introduces a new and innovative solution called the Federated Server Architecture (FSA). The FSA, developed by MKS, uses advanced and reliable caching technology while building on the widespread advancements in network availability and reliability. The result is a solution that has numerous advantages over the outdated replication paradigm, including lower total cost of ownership, reduced administrative burden, and access to real-time project information. Read this paper to learn more about the FSA and how MKS supports multi-site development.
