Gravic, Inc., a world leader in providing Total Replication Solutions® extended its family of replication solutions by providing replication from Oracle® and Microsoft® SQL Server source databases on most UNIX® platforms and Microsoft Windows® platforms. All of the characteristics of reliability, availability, and scalability of the Shadowbase NonStop solutions are carried into the Open Source solution as are the full-featured flexible capabilities like sophisticated data transformation and mapping and the GUI Shadowbase Enterprise Manager™ command, control, and monitoring module.
Replication is supported from Oracle and SQL Server source databases to Oracle, Sybase®, Microsoft SQL Server, DB2, and HP NonStop target databases.
The Shadowbase for Open Source replication solutions capture change data from Oracle and SQL Server source databases using highly efficient C external routines in the Shadowbase Open Collector process. These changes are propagated to a Shadowbase Database of Change (DOC) that serves as a stable queue in the event the target is unavailable. Data from the DOC can be replicated to another system using a Transaction Forwarding Server (TFS) or directly to a database on the same system using a Transaction Replay Server (TRS). On a target UNIX or Windows system, the user has the option of applying changes directly to the target database or queuing changes and only applying committed transactions to the target.
