A common thing for many companies is that they need access to the right data at the right time. This helps business leaders make informed decisions, provide excellent service and remain competitive.
Replicating data between distributed systems provides the central overview businesses like yours need. This is why many business leaders turn to data replication solutions to improve data flows between their systems. They aim to improve their business processes and eventually reach higher efficiency.
This article will look into data replication solutions. In particular it will investigate what you should be looking for in a data replication solution. We will help you find out which solution will easily let you replicate data between different data sources.
In the time of big data, data has become an extreme source of information and knowledge for companies. Data allows them to better understand and serve their customers.
From that point on, data capture is important, but there is more to it. Storing data (for example in data centers, data warehouses or data lakes), merging data and accessing data has become crucial.
Data replication is the process of copying data from one main/central database to one or more other data sources. Successful data replication involves impeccable data quality.
There are many different ways to replicate databases, for example:
Data replication is often seen as a necessary evil. A disruptive and somewhat dangerous process. However, data replication does not always come across as the easiest path to engage in.
For many, data and database replication is still a synonym for troublesome and risky projects. Though, in a way, keeping working with distributed databases is eventually just as risky.
The key success criteria is to choose the most suitable data replication solution. Then you will find that replicating business data between databases can be simple and stress-free.
At Rapidi, we built our first Replicator back in the 1990’s. Since then, we have extended and redesigned the solution’s technology to be as fast, flexible, robust and secure as possible.
We performed research and trials and errors. We collected best practices and learnings. The result can be found in the high performance data replication solution we can offer today.
Choosing the best data replication will get you off to a great start.
Your data replication solution should offer the following capabilities:

Every IT deployment can be a risky endeavor. As a company, your data is one of your strongest assets. In the age of big data, collecting information about your customers has never been easier.
At the same time, your customers have never had higher expectations of you. They expect you to know who they are, what they like and how they buy. They demand spotless customer service. They will not forgive you easily if you forget what their favorite product is or what they bought from you last time.
