Arcion Introduces SAP Sybase ASE Connector for Ultimate Migration Flexibility
SAN MATEO, Calif., Jan. 5, 2023 — Arcion, creator of the only cloud-native distributed, CDC-based data replication platform, today announced its real-time integration connector for SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise (Sybase ASE). This new extension to the Arcion CDC platform enables high-volume database migration and real-time data replication with guaranteed delivery, 100% transactional integrity, and sub-second latency, with zero downtime. As ASE approaches the end of mainstream maintenance, Arcion CDC offers enterprises a range of new options for modernization. With the addition of this new connector, Arcion now supports CDC out of all databases from the SAP ecosystem: Sybase ASE, HANA and IQ.
Arcion’s new connector empowers SAP Sybase customers with ultimate flexibility, providing a zero-risk path for large-scale database migration, featuring immediate rollback capabilities and zero downtime. Arcion’s real-time replication is perfectly suited for streaming data to modern relational databases, NoSQL databases, and cloud data platforms. Enterprises can operate Sybase in parallel with their target database of choice, including SQL Server, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Yugabyte and numerous others.
Arcion supports turnkey snapshot migration for initial data loads as well as real-time replication using change data capture technology to establish and maintain absolute consistency between source and target databases. Using these capabilities in tandem, enterprises can enjoy ultimate flexibility when migrating databases.
Arcion eliminates the risks associated with the “dump and load” database migrations, allowing for unlimited testing and validation during parallel operations prior to cutover. For those who prefer a phased approach, Arcion CDC also supports continuous streaming operations. Arcion customers can immediately unlock the value of their Sybase data without impacting the existing critical operations.
“Sybase ASE dates back to the 1980s, so it’s only natural that many enterprise customers are looking to modernize,” said Arcion CEO Gary Hagmueller. “With SAP’s announcement that mainstream support will be ending soon, the clock is ticking for those customers to develop and implement their go-forward game plans. Arcion is perfectly suited for large-scale data migration, without any of the risks typically associated with a big-bang approach. Our real-time CDC replication platform allows customers to run Sybase in parallel with virtually any modern database platform, so the target system is kept perfectly in sync with the source at all times. That allows for a zero-risk, zero-downtime migration, even for the largest databases.”
Arcion features automated schema conversion, which not only accelerates the initial setup of a target database for migration but also ensures trouble-free streaming pipelines for scenarios that involve ongoing data replication. Arcion automatically detects schema changes in the source database and updates the target system accordingly, eliminating error conditions that might otherwise arise as a result of mismatched schemas.
Some of the largest financial institutions in the world trust Arcion CDC for secure, scalable data replication with guaranteed transactional integrity. With full SOC 2 and HIPAA compliance, Arcion makes a perfect fit for Sybase customers in financial services and other industries that require flawless performance and bulletproof security.
Arcion offers substantially lower TCO than other CDC solutions, due in large part to its native cloud architecture, user friendly design, and no-code approach. Its core-based pricing model offers complete transparency and eliminates overprovisioning. Arcion’s constant check-pointing allows it to resume from the point where the replication left off, eliminating expensive snapshot redos or DDL change rebuilds. The Sybase ASE connector also features agentless connectivity, further simplifying setup and configuration, while removing any performance impact on the Sybase clusters.
“Guaranteed transactional integrity, massive scalability, and ultra-low latency are among our core strengths,” said Rajkumar Sen, Arcion founder and chief technology officer. “When you add agentless connectivity and no-code capabilities, that makes Arcion CDC the easiest solution for companies migrating away from their legacy databases.”
Arcion is the only log-based change data capture (CDC) platform architected for petabyte-level scalability. Enterprises utilize our zero-impact, agentless CDC pipelines to replicate data in real time, with guaranteed low latency and consistency. Arcion features built-in high-availability, out-of-the-box support for schema conversions and evolution, with zero code required. Fortune 500 companies rely on Arcion to break down data silos and drive faster, more agile analytics and AI by replicating mission-critical data among databases and cloud data warehouses.
