Sprinkler is a Data Distribution System, developed to simplify any information replication needed between two or more Microsoft Dynamics NAV databases, and available for every version from NAV 2013 R2 to NAV 2016.
In his most simple configuration, Sprinkler detects any data modification operated on first database (called Master) and transfers this information to the second database (called Slave), in order to replicate the same operation.
A flexible setup on master database allows to define precisely which operations are to be detected, and a similar setup on slave database allows to define which reported operations has to be imported and replicated. (Basic Configuration)
A single database can be at the same time master and slave, allowing a bi-directional distribution configuration; moreover, in the eeLite version is allowed also the communication between more than two databases at the same time, creating a very flexible distribution system.
In Sprinkler Lite the Data Distribution is implemented using Stored Procedures between linked servers, while in Sprinkler eeLite we offer a proprietary distribution layer that allows you to have a distributed architecture, possibly using a relay server resident on Microsoft Azure.
