Spread the Database Love with Heterogeneous Replication

Spread the Database Love with Heterogeneous Replication

 27 April - 3:00 PM - 3:50 PM @ Ballroom B
Experience level: 
50 minutes conference


No database is an island and as NoSQL and BigData provide additional challenges and opportunities, you need a way for information and data to be replicated between your existing MySQL, MariaDB or Oracle installation out to other databases. Whether you are doing analytics, distributing data through Kafka to other systems, or merely sharing data with your NoSQL DB such as MongoDB, Couchbase or Cassandra, you need an environment to handle user-friendly data, you need to efficiently replicate the data to your new system. In this session we'll look at Tungsten Replicator, which enables real-time and efficient replication of data from your transactional database. We'll focus on the applier side, looking at how to both replicate to non-transactional environments and how to customise and develop your own appliers and customisations. This will include an examination of the applier system and the JS environment for batch application, as well as a filter environment for massaging your data before replication.
