Demand for real-time data transfer between organization systems is increasing as a result of digital initiatives. Traditional data loading techniques (Batch) have lost their value due to delivery time delays. The opportunity to act on the info has passed by the time it is provided. As a result, businesses are looking for the best solutions for achieving real-time data replication across all of their systems.
There are a variety of systems on the market that offer real-time data replication; however, in this post, we’ll focus on two popular options and their optimum use scenarios:
- Syniti Data Replication
- SAP HANA Smart Data Integration
Real-time replication can be beneficial in a variety of situations involving different databases and features. It is important to know the essential features of both to know which product to employ for each use.
HANA Smart Data Integration’s vision is to provide native data integration capability on the HANA platform, making it easy for customers to choose a data replication solution that fits their needs.
Although HANA SDI will be the solution of choice for most HANA-related data transfer requirements in the future, there are currently numerous tools available to accomplish data migration inside the HANA ecosystem. SAP Data Services, SAP Landscape Transformation Replication Server (SLT), and SAP HANA Smart Data Streaming all provide benefits for data migration depending on the use case. Consider the following scenario:
SAP Data Services: Batch ETL with advanced transformations
SAP SLT: Code Integrator
SAP Smart Data Streaming: For data transmission
In use cases involving a SAP HANA database as a destination where native data integration is required, HANA SDI can also be used.
Real-time replication and CDC with Syniti Data Replication
Syniti Data Replication (previously known as DBMoto) is the preferred solution for real-time data replication, Change Data Capture, and data transformation across heterogeneous source and target systems.
Syniti Data Replication offers three replication options:
Refresh (Snapshot): Reads data, applies user-defined mapping rules, and writes the results to destination databases.
CDC Based on the management of transactional logs, replication in one direction using Change Data Capture (CDC) technology from the source to the destination in real time.
Synchronization: CDC is used for transactional replication, conflict resolution, and bidirectional synchronisation of various databases.
Syniti Data Replication is clearly the best solution for a wide range of data migration scenarios, whether on-premises or in the cloud.
