While storing data in the cloud provides many benefits for enterprises, it also provides a significant challenge for IT teams: cloud data synchronization.
Enterprises in every vertical are looking to the cloud to reduce storage costs, improve scalability, increase availability and deliver business intelligence and IoT data analytics. But cloud storage solutions can also burden IT teams who must integrate data from many disparate sources and manage large data transfers without impacting production on source systems. And to ensure that users, applications and analytics platforms have fast access to real-time data, IT teams must have a superior solution for cloud data synchronization.
In the past, IT teams have tried to meet the challenge of cloud data synchronization with a number of integration tools, including ETL technology. But this assortment of solutions tends to be complex and time-consuming to handle, frequently requiring manual scripting and constant management. As a result, cloud data synchronization tasks can easily strain IT resources and tie up talented developers with tedious and error-prone tasks.
To simplify cloud data synchronization, Qlik offers a powerful solution for universal data replication and ingestion in Qlik Replicate®.
Qlik Replicate is an environment and data modernization solution that moves data at high speed across all major source and target platforms. With a single “Click to Load” interface, Qlik Replicate automates the replication process from end to end, enabling administrators and data architects to quickly and easily configure, control and monitor bulk uploads and cloud data synchronization with no manual coding.
Qlik accomplishes cloud data synchronization with Change Data Capture (CDC) technology, copying updates as they occur in the source data or metadata in applying them in real-time to the target endpoint in the cloud. Streamlined and agentless configuration and zero-footprint architecture help to eliminate or minimize impact on source database production, and features for intelligent management and control enable administrators to design, execute and monitor thousands of tasks across a distributed data center and cloud environments. Qlik supports all major cloud platforms, mainframe systems and RDBMS, making it an ideal solution for Change Data Capture in SQL Server.
When managing cloud data synchronization with CDC database Streaming technology, Qlik provides a number of options, including:
