USAFCENT calls Replication the "Key" to Successful Knowledge Management

"We decided that we needed an event-driven replication process," said Bill Strickland, technical director at the AFCENT Network Operations and Security Center (NOSC). Which basically means that every time anything is done to a document in the system, an automated signal is sent to all connected servers to let them know an update was made to shared information in real-time. The document could be loaded at the CAOC, changed by someone at USAFCENT Headquarters, updated on the server back at the CAOC and throughout the AOR in less than 5 minutes.

"Replication is the key to this system," Mr. Strickland said. "It allows you to pick up and operate from virtually anywhere in the world."
