SharePlex™ can help reduce your downtime and allows you to continue normal business operations during a migration or upgrade. Whether your company is in the middle of an acquisition or merger, experiencing a related data center consolidation, or considering a change in hardware platform, operating system or application upgrade, SharePlex can help you overcome the major availability challenges usually associated with migrations and upgrades. Here’s how:
Here’s how it works:
- The original system will function as usual, while SharePlex captures and queues all transactions that occur during the migration.
- Upon completion of the migration activity, the backlog is brought in sync after being applied to the migrated system.
- After the migration, the same data is in both the pre- and post-migrated systems, and activity stops momentarily to switch users from one system to another.
- You can failback to the original system to make adjustments if a problem is encountered during the migration so that your users do not experience downtime.
Whether the migration is local or over wide area networks, SharePlex maintains a current copy of your data.
You can replicate heterogeneous environments (such as Dell, IBM, Sun and HP, as well as Oracle 10g, 11g, 12c or RAC). This ensures compatibility and flexibility when you select your hardware, consolidate your data, or merge companies using different platforms.
