Why is there a need for a yacht-speci?c Email solution?

Typical yacht email installations consist of one server, based either on board or on shore. Every time the Captain or a crew member connects to their email they need to connect to this one server, whether that is from shore to yacht or yacht to shore. High volumes of email traf?c, use and communication put a signi?cant strain on the internet/data connection which is of particular importance for the yacht. Valuable connection data needs to be allocated to the email traf?c resulting in it not being available for other technical system requirements. This can be inef?cient, not cost-effective and makes the sending and receiving of emails slow.

How is TrueSync different?

TrueSync consists of two servers: one on board and one on shore. Both servers are fully and securely synchronized 24/7, using what is known as an Active / Active sync feature. This feature is unique to TrueSync and therefore no other email solution guarantees this. When an email is sent from the yacht, the shore server handles the distribution. When an email is sent from shore, the yacht server distributes it to the necessary devices. Neither server is unnecessarily taxed and bandwidth connection usage is kept to a minimum.

What are the advantages?

TrueSync delivers and receives emails faster. It saves on bandwidth. It is secure. Emails are ?ltered before they get to the yacht. It is reliable and the full synchronization guarantees optimized backups. It ensures that the onboard connection is used ef?ciently, without interfering with bandwidth needed for additional onboard services.

The unique Active/Active sync feature of TrueSync guarantees a smart, fast and reliable Email set-up making it the best ?t for the maritime industry. Further features include:

• True Yacht-Shore Email Synchronization
• Seamless encrypted connection to shore server when leaving yacht
• Single address
• Full database replication
• Shore-based spam ?ltering
• Virus Check
• VSAT connection not required to receive mail when on shore
• Receive email on board using any of the available internet connections
• Optimized use of bandwidth
• Results in enhanced owner and guest experience of other internet-based services

“We are always looking for yacht-speci?c solutions to improve the onboard experience. Innovations that use proven technology to address actual onboard problems and that offer a reliable and much-needed solution. TrueSync is a great example of a product that really does offer superyacht owners something better. A solution that really can meet onboard demands, solve email related issues whilst providing additional resulting bene?ts for other technical system requirements,” explains Andre Klepper, YachtCloud Founder.
