What is data replication?

Data replication is a common solution for supporting data integration requirements. Data replication provides trusted data synchronization (including change data capture capabilities) and availability, enabling you to efficiently manage data growth while increasing revenue through use of up-to-the-minute information. Real-time operational and analytical data synchronization enriches big data systems and mobile applications, empowering the event-driven business.

Robust data replication capabilities deliver high volumes of data with very low latency, making data replication ideal for multi-site workload distribution and continuous availability.

IBM offers data replication, a portfolio that delivers high volumes of data with very low latency, making data replication 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 the most robust support for sources, targets, and platforms to ensure the right data is available in data warehouses, data marts, and point-of-impact solutions, while enabling optimal resource utilization and rapid ROI.
