New CLZ Cloud Syncing v2.0

April 29th, 2015

Are you also using our desktop or mobile cataloging solutions to sync to and from the CLZ Cloud or Connect?

Then this is a big day, as we have completely rewritten the CLZ Cloud syncing mechanism, to make it easier to use, faster and capable of syncing very large databases.

  • Easier: One “Synchronize” button that syncs up and/or down as needed.
    No more need to choose the sync direction (Up or Down). Just click the single Synchronize button and the system will automatically upload your local changes and download your cloud-side changes.
  • Faster: Sync your additions, changes and removals within a few seconds.
    The software now keeps track of your adds, edits and removes, so when synchronizing with the CLZ Cloud, it already knows which items need to be up- or downloaded, making the actual sync very fast.
    ( the initial full sync may be slightly slower though, but you only need to do that once )
  • More scalable: Transfer very large databases without problems.
    The syncing process is now a series of tiny data uploads and downloads, as opposed to a single huge upload/download. This ensures that databases of any size can be synced.
  • More reliable: Solves many problems of the old syncing system.
    No more “invalid XML” when uploading large collections, no more changes that keep recurring every sync. No more starting from scratch in case of connection problems, just continue where you left off.
