A universal and reliable tool for database replication in Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server for Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and PostgreSQL databases. It provides real-time access to copies of production data without influencing the availability and performance of source systems.

 

Sharing data between different databases and applications can be a very complex process and can have a negative impact on system performance, and as a result, on the company’s financial results. Moreover, if current data from various systems cannot by analysed on a minute-by-minute basis, the possibilities for growth now offered by advanced analytics such as Business Intelligence (BI) cannot be exploited.

Don’t know how to solve everyday problems with data exchange, upgrades, migration, or reporting? Effective communication between many applications in the company is essential for effective work. Watch a short video on the DBPLUS Data Replicator.

 

Too often, solutions which allow you to integrate many applications in the business, for instance data buses, absorb far too many resources. An excellent solution to the integration of systems can be real-time data replication between these systems, which presents a far lower burden on resources than other methods.

Overview

Migration and modernisation of databases

Thanks to data replication in real time, data migrations and upgrades can be conducted much faster, with minimal downtime of source systems. The capability of reversing the direction of replication also enables return to the former base in the case of migration problems occurring.

Reporting in real time

Data replication in real time between transactional systems and reporting platforms allows for the creation of reports based on the latest data without any extra load on the transactional systems that are the data source. This enables one to solve problems related to work on outdated data or the activation of reports directly on transactional systems, having a negative effect on their performance.

Integration of applications and uniform interface

For the efficient work of many applications, effective data transfer between them is necessary. Commonly used solutions, such as a data bus, are ineffective due to the required resources. In many cases, online replication may replace others more demanding on the resources and methods of data transfer between systems.

Consolidation of data from many systems

Due to replication in real time, one may easily consolidate data from many systems in one database – e.g. data warehouse. Reports can be created on the basis of current data flowing in from many systems in real time, which allows for advanced Business Intelligence analysis.

Intuitive interface

Our software has a very intuitive interface, easy to use even for users without much experience in database replication.

Distribution of data to dispersed systems

DBPLUS Data Replicator may be used for the transfer of data in real time from a main transactional system to distributed systems. Users in distant locations can work on copies of production data in real time – without overloading the source system.

FAQ

1. Does your software handle interruptions during replication?

DBPLUS Data Replicator has built-in mechanisms that allow you to interrupt replication and then continue from the place where the interrupt occurred. Depending on the amount of data that has not been replicated during the interruption, the software needs some time to catch up until replication is done online.

2. What does it mean that replication is on-line?

This means that data replication between databases is near-real time. In the case of our software, the minimum delay is approximately 120 ms.

3. Is there a free version of DBPLUS Data Replicator?

DBPLUS Data Replicator can be used at no charge if you replicate no more than 100,000 records daily. Exceeding this limit requires the purchase of a license.

4. Can I test DBPLUS Data Replicator?

We provide our customers with the software for test, we can also support test installation. The installation program can be downloaded from our website.

5. What are the available directions for replication?

At the moment, the source database can be Oracle and target database can be Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server or PostgreSQL.

6. What is the DBPLUS Data Replicator license model?

DBPLUS Data Replicator is licensed per CPU socket in the source-replica configuration.

Q&A

1. Can I return to the old database in case of problems after data migration?

Yes. The capability of reversing the direction of replication also enables return to the former base in the case of migration problems occurring.

2. Does reports creation generate an additional load for transaction systems?

Reports based on the most up-to-date data do not generate any extra load for transaction systems that are the data source.

3. How many changes during the day can the Data Replicator read?

The DBPLUS Data Replicator software is able to read up to 1.5TB of daytime changes contained in log files. Information about changes made on the source database is read from transaction logs via the LogMiner tool available in Oracle databases.

4. Does the amount of data stored in the tables affect the speed of replicated data?

The complexity of the data model does not affect the speed of replicated data. DBPLUS Data Replicator reads changes made on the production basis from transaction logs by reading individual DDL operations.

5. Is there an additional support fee?

When you want to test our software, we can support you in its installation and configuration. We do not charge for supporting software installation.

6. What are the differences between Online Replication and Oracle Data Guard?

Active Data Guard: Online Replication:
  • One-way physical replication Integrated automatic database failover
  • Logical replication: Active-Active HA, one to many, many to one
  • Target is a different database with the same data, it may have a different physical structure, indexing scheme or even platform
  • Standby database (target) is an exact copy open read-only
  • Extremely flexible, source and target are open read-write
  • Backups are interchangeable
  • Backup not exchangable
  • Supports all applications and workloads
  • Simplest to use, rich configurability and flexibility
  • Transparent to operate – no data type restrictions
  • Some data type restrictions
  • Choice of zero data loss protection or asynchronous
  • Asynchronous logical replication
  • Standby-first patching Database rolling maintenance and upgrades
  • Flexible options for rolling maintenance Zero downtime migration and application upgrades
  • An Oracle Database Enterprise Edition is required
  • Available for all database Edition (SE, EE)
  • The same version of databases must be installed on the source database and all standby databases
  • Replication between different versions of databases are supported
  • The same database platform is needed
  • Limited cross-platform support
  • Different database platform are supported (i.e. Oracle<>SQL Server)
  • Extensive cross-platform suport
