Attunity Ltd. announced this week that its data replication software now offers support for loading data to the Microsoft SQL Azure cloud.
The company said its Attunity Replicate software is designed to automate data replication from multiple databases for business operations and intelligence needs, all without installing software on either the source or target databases, and offers web-based monitoring, metrics and alerts for replication.
The addition of Azure support allows organizations “accelerate cloud adoption, reduce risks and derive value faster” in situations where data is stored in the data center and the cloud, the company said in a statement. Attunity Replicate can backup a full load of data from a data center, and continue with incremental backups.
Replicate also uses log-based technology that tracks transaction changes with minimal impact on source database systems including Oracle, SQL Server and DB2, the company said.
