Cache Server

From version 5.0, Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere for VSS provides a caching solution for distributed development. SourceAnywhere for VSS Cache Server is an optional caching system. It is used to cache copies of requested server files, thereby improving the client responsiveness.

When you have more than one developer working on the same project at the same remote location, you will need SourceAnywhere for VSS Cache Server. It is recommended that you install Cache Server on the same LAN as the clients or on a machine on the WAN that connects to the clients with minimal WAN traffic using any standard TCP/IP connection.

This is the scenario: When a user tries to get or check out a file through Cache Server, if the file was transferred through this cache server before, the file will be transferred directly from Cache Server to client. No request is sent to server.

Additional features of SourceAnywhere for VSS Cache Server are listed below:

  • Low Administrative Overhead
    Files are automatically cached upon requests; SourceAnywhere for VSS Cache Server is self-maintaining.
     
  • Standard TCP/IP Communication Link
    SourceAnywhere for VSS uses TCP/IP as the communication link between SourceAnywhere for VSS Server, SourceAnywhere for VSS Cache Server, and SourceAnywhere for VSS Client. It allows the SourceAnywhere for VSS Cache Server to be deployed over WAN or LAN with ease.
     
  • Encrypted Data Transmission
    Data transmission between SourceAnywhere for VSS Server, SourceAnywhere for VSS Cache Server and SourceAnywhere for VSS Client can be secured by implementing Blowfish or SSL encryption.
     
  • Scalable Distribution Mechanism
    The distribution mechanism provided by SourceAnywhere for VSS Cache Server can scale into tens of servers as needed.
