Syncplify Server! v6.2.31 released

Importance of this update: [NORMAL]
What’s changed?
  • Upgraded the Go compiler, standard library and toolchain to v1.22.2
  • Fixed a bug in the SuperAdmin UI that occasionally would mistake two distinct bindings for conflicting ones
  • Reduced the amount of CPU necessary for password authentication (this applies only to new users, or when existing users change/reset their password)

IMPORTANT NOTE: those who are running the “worker” system service under a different account (not System or LocalSystem) will need to re-configure the service to run under such account after upgrading from any version number <= 6.1.12)

Upgrading from v6.x.y is a simple and fairly automatic process: simply download the latest version from the official download page, and install it over the existing version, all of your settings and license will be kept.

If, instead, you’re upgrading from an older (v4/v5) version, you find the upgrade instructions in our knowledge base.

Heterogeneous (cross-system) high-availability

Just a quick update to let everyone know that Syncplify Server! v6 is going to support heterogeneous high-availability deployments.

What’s that?

That’s when you have two or more nodes (machines or VMs) running Syncplify Server!, all acting as a single larger SFTP server… and they are heterogeneous because (unlike most competitors) in our design each node can have a different operating system.

Yes, you got that right: you can have, for example, a 2-node high-availability (HA) set with one node running on Windows and the other node running on Linux.
