Dell Boosts Adoption of Modern and Analytic Database Platforms
Dell announced a major new release of its award-winning SharePlex database replication and near real-time data integration solution. Continuing its evolution beyond traditional Oracle-to-Oracle replication capabilities, the latest release of Dell SharePlex enables users to replicate Oracle data directly to SAP HANA, Teradata, or EnterpriseDB Postgres. In keeping with the focus of Dell’s robust portfolio of systems and information management solutions, the new release of Dell SharePlex empowers organizations to spend less time worrying about how to migrate data onto these modern platforms, and more time fueling innovation by driving reporting and analytics initiatives forward.
With the latest Dell SharePlex release, organizations can eliminate the anxiety of migrations to SAP HANA, Teradata, or EnterpriseDB Postgres Advanced Server with a proven solution that replicates data in near real-time with no impact to the production database – and does so at half the cost of other leading database replication solutions. With the addition of support for SAP HANA, Teradata, and EnterpriseDB Postgres, SharePlex now supports a host of target environments, including Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, SAP ASE, Java Message Service (JMS), SQL and XML Files.
“Data replication has always been a vital requirement for IT organizations looking to make their systems more agile, flexible and collaborative. But significant changes in data replication applications, technologies and best practices are forcing IT leaders to rethink their strategies for how to design, deploy and manage data replication solutions,” said Murli Mohan, Director and General Manager, Dell Software Group. “With our latest release of SharePlex, customers can replicate Oracle data directly to SAP HANA, Teradata, or EnterpriseDB Postgres. It also enables them to increase scalability, maximize availability, enable business continuity and provide near real-time data integration while meeting their database operational goals.”
Empowering organizations to drive innovation
Growing pressure to lower operational costs and better manage sophisticated analytics requirements without sacrificing functionality has led organizations to seek out efficient, cost-effective alternatives to traditional legacy database technology. With a wide range of innovative new platforms to choose from, organizations are moving away from single-platform consolidation and deploying a variety of database types to lower costs and better align with business and analytics objectives. The expanded platform support from Dell SharePlex gives organizations the agility and flexibility needed grow, diversify and modernize their database infrastructure to better leverage improved performance from in-memory databases and better manage evolving analytic requirements.
According to Darin Bartik, vice president of marketing, systems and information management, Dell, “SharePlex pioneered the concept of Oracle database replication, and customers around the world depend on it every day. Now, with the addition of support for SAP HANA, Teradata, and EnterpriseDB Postgres, Dell continues to evolve SharePlex to help customers grow and sustain an increasingly diverse database environment. Whether structured or unstructured, proprietary or open source, on-premises or in the cloud, Dell is committed to supporting all data across all platforms. This deliberately agnostic approach enables us to meet customers where they are and help them get where they want to go next by providing the right solution at the right time.”
Regardless of the target, transforming database infrastructure is a major undertaking for companies of all sizes. Whether implementing new production databases or offloading data for reporting and analytics use cases, SharePlex enables organizations to migrate and upgrade their environments while ensuring high availability of mission-critical systems. With the latest release of Dell SharePlex, organizations migrating to SAP HANA, Teradata, or EnterpriseDB Postgres can achieve dramatically reduced downtime, deploy unlimited practice runs with no impact to the production environment, and put control of scheduling back in the hands of the IT team.
