Fastest way to "put data" inside filemaker

For years I'm thinking that the fastest way to put data in filemaker is the import function. By putting data I'm referring to update or create new records. But maybe it's not true (anymore), as 360's MirrorSync3 seems to suggest.


MirrorSync3 can allow filemaker clustering, which would imply ultra-fast updates, which seems not possible to me given Imports, Filemaker SQL.

It seems to use JDBC, but to me JDBC is just a layer on Filemaker Engine, and theoretically should be as fast or a bit slower than Filemaker's native functions.


So does someone has experience with JDBC updates or ultra-fast method to create or update records ?
