Sybase announced a new version of its Replication Server product Aug. 10 from its TechWave conference. Among its features is high volume adaptive replication technology that will slash the time it takes to replicate large data loads, Sybase said.
Sybase announced a new release of its database replication
product armed with functionality designed to reduce latency when moving data
between enterprises data stores.
In Replication Server 15.5, Sybase uses its high volume
adaptive replication technology to reduce the time it takes to replicate large
data volumes by analyzing rapidly changing data and only delivering final
outcomes. The result is data reduction as well as better performance compared
to the continuous replication mode, Amit Satoor, senior group product manager
at Sybase, told eWEEK.
"Instead of sending every logged operation, HVAR removes all
the intermediate operations and sends only the final states of a replicated
transaction," he said. "Depending on the application, this generally means a much
smaller amount of data is processed and much higher throughput."
Sybase Replication Server also introduces the Real-Time
Loading Edition for rapid loading of transactional data from Sybase Adaptive
Server Enterprise (ASE) into Sybase IQ analytics server, a move Satoor said
establishes "a true operational data store for business intelligence."
"The Replication Server - Real-Time Loading Edition
transforms nightly batch loads to continuous loads throughout the day,
delivering ASE operational system changes to your Sybase IQ analytics server
within minutes of the source transaction change," he said.
According to Sybase, the release also enables Adaptive
Server Enterprise (ASE) on-disk databases to be replicated to ASE in-memory
The latest edition of the product was announced Aug. 10 during
Sybase's annual TechWave user conference, going on in Washington, DC.
The user conference comes less than a month after SAP closed on its acquisition
of the company in late July.
