Using filemaker on multiple geographic sites

Hello, I'm after a bit of advice.

We use filemaker 12 server to run practice management system for a vet practice, we will shortly be using it on multiple sites and would like to maintain a single database.


1, Is it possible to have servers in each geographic location that are synchronised so that if the broadband fails then it can still be used locally and then will re-synchronise once internet/power is back?

2, We need to be able to record username (straightforward) and also the clinic name that the user is in in records - how do we get it to automatically enter the clinic name, dependent on the location of the user?


Thanks very much
