Fault Tolerance Support.
Fault tolerance is built in the system, as the POS is capable of
working without a main server due to server failure as well as
network failure. Once the server and/or the network has been
restablished, all pending transactions are updagted at the serveras
if nothing had happened.
Each POS is a “Thick Client”, that is, it has it’s own procesor and
storage capability. The only time limit in working without a server is
the size of the local storage medium to store the transactions.
Once the conection to the server is restablished, all information is
returned and updated at the server, such as sales information,
layaways, frecuent shopper, till information, etc.
