Continuous replication

We understand that in today’s fast-paced business environment, timely access to information can be a game-changer. Keeping this in mind, our enhanced replication feature is custom-tailored for point-and-click business users. Say goodbye to the intricacies of setups like CRON statements. With our new user-friendly interface, you can now opt for quicker replication intervals – whether it’s one-minute updates or efficient five-minute job runs. With these near real-time replication options, CData makes up-to-the-minute data access easier—even for those without a technical background.

Databricks Unity Catalog

Data governance is not just about managing data; it's about optimizing the business value of data. With the rise of lakehouses, the demand for a unified governance solution is more important than ever. Recognizing this, CData Sync now integrates with the Databricks Unity Catalog – the industry’s leading unified governance solution for data and artificial intelligence (AI) on the lakehouse. Whether you're managing machine learning (ML) models, notebooks, dashboards, or other assets, Unity Catalog provides a robust governance structure across all platforms. This integration ensures that you’re not just managing your data, but truly leveraging it to its full potential.

Why are these updates significant?

In an era dominated by data-driven decision-making, tools that simplify data integration and management while ensuring up-to-date access are indispensable. With features like continuous replication, even non-technical users can gain timely data access. The Rest API Connector democratizes data integration, allowing users from all backgrounds to create customized data connections. And with the Databricks Unity Catalog integration, businesses can look forward to holistic data governance, propelling them to the forefront of the data management realm.
