POS Explained: How Does the First Self-Healing Database work?

Learn how the world’s first Self-Healing, enterprise-ready POS Database fixes the situation automatically when the database is destroyed unexpectedly.

In the past if your system crashed, or if the servers hosting your data crashed, there was no way of getting back the important information regarding your daily transactions. But with SkyWire’s Self-Healing POS, even if information is eliminated or the system crashes, all of your important data is backed up in a matter of seconds. The SkyWire Multi-Node Fractal Syncing technology was built in-house by Lead Programmer David Hinote, using the strength of SQL to restore the satellite database in the instance where it is somehow eliminated.

“Our competitors can’t do this,” says Hinote. “These days, all POS software offers offline mode, which is the ability to handle transactions even if the main database is not connected to terminals, with a subsequent syncing once connection has been established. But offline mode is where everyone else’s service ends.”

With SkyWire’s Self-Healing POS, the system heals itself following a crash without anyone ever knowing anything went wrong. An industry first, this technology promises to be a game-changer, especially for enterprise-level companies.
