What is data replication?

Data replication is a capability that provides trusted data integration and synchronization to help you efficiently manage data growth. It powers the use of real-time information for DataOps by enriching big data systems and mobile applications, 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 multisite workload distribution and continuous availability — whether across the data center, from on premises or to the cloud. This robust support for sources, targets and platforms ensures 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.

Leverage high-performance capabilities, for integration with Kafka and Hadoop.



Enable low-impact integration

Data is captured directly from database logs for dynamic delivery to data lakes.

Get continuous data availability

Replicate and synchronize operations to a backup system for continuous availability.
