Microsoft greases collaboration on cloud

Sync this

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Microsoft had released the first version of the .NET code that'll underpin collaboration services in the company's planned cloud platform.

The company has released Microsoft Sync Framework 1.0, first unveiled in December last year. The Sync Framework is designed to let you add roaming, synchronization, and offline access to applications, devices and services using .NET.

Microsoft said Sync Framework 1.0 works with databases, NTFS/FAT file systems, feeds for Simple Sharing Extensions - now called FeedSync - devices, and web services.

Sync Framework supports any data and any protocol over any network, the company said. "The Microsoft Sync Framework provides a platform for taking web services and databases offline. In addition, it provides optimized P2P sync of any type of file including contacts, music, videos, images and settings," according to Microsoft.

Version 1.0 works with Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003.

Sync Framework 1.0 follows last month's release of code updating Microsoft's synchronization for Windows-based mobile devices. Microsoft released its first service pack for Microsoft Synchronization Services for ADO.NET, to synchronize data from different sources, and to keep data locally so Windows Mobile 5.0 and Windows Mobile 6.0 machines can work offline. ®
