What is data replication?

Data replication is a solution that provides trusted data integration and synchronization to enable you to efficiently manage data growth. It empowers your event-driven business by enriching big data systems and mobile applications through the use of real-time information, even capturing data that is constantly changing.

The IBM data replication portfolio supports high volumes of data with very low latency, making the solution ideal for multi-site workload distribution and continuous availability -- whether across the data center, from on premise to Cloud, or around the world. IBM provides robust support for sources, targets, and platforms ensuring the right data is available in data lakes, data warehouses, data marts and point-of-impact solutions, while enabling optimal resource utilization and rapid ROI.

Gain access to the unified governance & integration platform offerings via flex point licensing. It supports your rapidly evolving business needs by giving you flexible access to the offerings included in the platform. Purchase entitlement based on your expected needs. When your business requirements change, gain the flexibility to add or stop using a product and apply the same flex points to another offering within the platform, as long as you stay within total flex points purchased.

What we offer

Simplified real time data integration for your big data initiatives

Delivers new high-performance, direct-apply capabilities that allow for integration with Kafka as well as any Hadoop distribution, including Hortonworks.

Supports a broad range of sources and targets be it RDBMS or non-RDBMS thereby enabling replication of data from a wide variety of sources to targets both on premise and in the Cloud.



Agile, low-impact integration of data

Data is captured from database logs rather than issuing database queries or installing triggers enabling a low-impact, highly scalable, and enterprise-ready data replication platform for dynamic, continuous, incremental delivery of transactional relational data to data warehouses, operational data stores and data lakes. 

Supports a broad range of sources and targets be it RDBMS or non-RDBMS thereby enabling replication of data from a wide variety of sources to targets both on premise and in the Cloud.

High availability and continuous data protection

Provides continuous availability of systems during planned and unplanned downtimes through continuous data replication and synchronization of data from your mission critical operational system to an available backup system.
