Data in the Cloud


Async, semi, and sync jump into the rink for your data management. Who wins? The answer depends greatly on many different factors including: * your availability needs * your infrastructure * your technical resources * ease of use * tools *legacy systems In this presentation we look at the maturity and configuration of the different types of replication to show what is involved to support and administer. We will discuss the architectural impact of choosing and using a type of replication for your application. We will look at the impact to the application developer in choosing, supporting or switching types. We will look at the operations and administration impact to evaluate the full cost of supporting different types in your organization.
