In the next few weeks, I will be writing about certain engineering aspects of SyncBlaze and the technology behind it. Let’s take a look at the general architecture of SyncBlaze Service Provider (SP) Edition as the first entry. The SP Edition is an on-premise version of SyncBlaze that enables Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Resellers to host the solution in their own environment and manage the data in their datacenter.
It is comprised of three components: Server, Client and Storage.
The SyncBlaze server is the key layer that powers the online file sharing and storage. During an initial file upload or any change in the SyncBlaze directory, a notification will immediately be triggered to the server. The files will be compressed and encrypted at the client end to be uploaded and stored in the server. The File Sync Server will be continuously running to make sure that all the clients are updated with the changes and any missing changes will be downloaded to the respective clients.
This blog is just a brief overview about the architecture of SyncBlaze, let’s get to know more specifics within the next weeks.
