Description

Does your organization need immediate access to mission critical data for competitive advantage?
Double-Take Share eliminates the manual processes that drain your productivity and enables you to easily share data between databases in real-time for business intelligence, application integration, database consolidation, database migration, or virtually any other data sharing need. Double-Take Share is the choice when you need automated data replication between heterogeneous databases with business-layer intelligence capabilities. Its point-and-click graphical user interface eliminates the need for programming while its flexible data sharing architecture and support for all popular operating systems and database environments addresses your full spectrum of data sharing needs.

Double-Take Share gives you a competitive edge by making your business’ critical information available where you need it in real-time, regardless of the underlying operating system, application or database.
Smarter data sharing means smarter business.

Integrating applications and keeping data in sync

In order to stay competitive, businesses need automated, standardized tools to accelerate information sharing and keep operations in sync between multiple running applications. Double-Take Share captures, transforms and replicates data between databases, allowing users to see each other’s data in real-time.

Replicating data between applications running at geographically dispersed sites also allows data to be placed close to its users. This avoids the performance impact of accessing data from production servers across the network, and reduces transmission costs and times for frequently accessed data.

On-demand centralized reporting and Business Intelligence

Organizations need immediate access to up-to-date, mission critical information as soon as it is available in order to make accurate business decisions. Double-Take Share enables your business to run reports on-demand using real time data. Share can capture and transform data from divergent sources and replicate it to a reporting or BI server, allowing you to perform queries, reporting, and BI from a centralized repository. The source of the data could be a single database of a similar type (to avoid the impact of reporting on a production server), a single database of another type (to transform data for your reporting application), or multiple databases of the same or different types (to consolidate or centralize information).

 

Enabling Business Intelligence Reporting with Microsoft Azure

Double-Take Share’s cross-platform data sharing allows organizations with legacy applications and data to replicate and transform the content to alternate platforms, such as Microsoft Azure, for queries, centralized reporting, and BI access. With Double-Take Share decisions can be made based on current data just as quickly as it becomes available from any source.

How does Double-Take Share enable BI reporting from Azure? As end users enter data into their location application, Double-Take Share captures, transforms, and replicates the changes to the target database in real-time. In the example below, the changed data is merged into a single, consolidated MS SQL Reporting database located in the Azure cloud where Azure-based Business Intelligence applications and reporting tools can access the consolidated data.

Feeding real time data to mission critical applications

Double-Take Share can also be used to feed data to mission critical applications – such as eCommerce, web portals, or other distributed applications. For example, data could be fed from a centralized ERP database to a distributed eBusiness system, of similar or dissimilar database, OS or hardware type.

Offloading production data for queries, maintenance, backup and more

Production servers need protection to ensure that they are always available and responsive to end user applications. One way to protect production servers is to offload production data to a secondary server (of similar or dissimilar OS or hardware type) so that work can be performed on the data without impact to the production system. One common scenario for offloading data is to send it to a data warehouse or data mart. Replicated data can also populate backup, test, and audit environments. There are many uses for offloaded production data.

Modernizing legacy databases

Double-Take Share’s cross-platform data sharing allows organizations with legacy applications and data to replicate and transform their data to more modern platforms. Data can be replicated to a new platform for the purpose of reporting with the latest tools, shared transparently with new applications, or permanently migrated to new databases and platforms.

Custom database migrations

Double-Take Share provides movement and transformation across database platforms that makes your migrations simple, and minimizes downtime and its impact on productivity by replicating and transforming data while users remain online and active. Double-Take Share’s hardware independence supports migrations from legacy systems to physical or virtual servers. For example, legacy DB2 data could be migrated to a SQL Server database for BI access. Migrations can also be performed to reduce the number of databases or database platforms that an IT organization must support.


Double-Take Share

Double-Take Share recognizes data changes as they happen at a source database, and replicates those changes to a target database (or multiple target databases) in real-time. Double-Take Share transforms the data as needed between the source and target databases. For example, when moving data between mainframe and open systems databases, the required EBCDIC to ASCII conversation is performed while the data is in flight. If you need the data in different formats in the source and target databases, such as converting dates between mm-dd-yy and yyyy/mm/dd format, you can use one of the more than 60 pre-built, click-and-go data transformations that come with Double-Take Share, or you can define your own data transformations to meet your organization’s unique needs. The target database can have a different data schema, use different data types, employ a different database management system and run on different hardware than the source database.

Double-Take Share supports a variety of data sharing topologies including one-to-one, one-to-many, many-to-one and cascading replication. All of these topologies support both unidirectional and bidirectional data sharing. Double-Take Share detects and resolves any conflicts that arise when two people change the same data simultaneously.

Double-Take Share is easy to configure and uses a centralized, intuitive GUI management console for monitoring and controlling day-to-day data sharing processes. A sophisticated user interface allows you to just point and click to map data sources to data targets. Then relax. Double-Take Share does the rest.
