Automated Continuous Amazon DynamoDB Replication to Google Cloud SQL

Use CData Sync for automated, continuous, customizable Amazon DynamoDB replication to Google Cloud SQL.

Always-on applications rely on automatic failover capabilities and real-time data access. CData Sync integrates live Amazon DynamoDB data into your Google Cloud SQL instance, allowing you to consolidate all of your data into a single location for archiving, reporting, analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence and more.

Configure Google Cloud SQL as a Replication Destination

Using CData Sync, you can replicate Amazon DynamoDB data to Google Cloud SQL. To add a replication destination, navigate to the Connections tab.

  1. Click Add Connection.
  2. Select Google Cloud SQL as a destination.
  3. Enter the necessary connection properties. To connect to Google Cloud SQL, set the following:
    • IP Address: The IP address assigned to your Google Cloud SQL database.
    • User: The username provided for authentication with the Google Cloud SQL database.
    • Password: The password provided for authentication with the Google Cloud SQL database.
    • Database: The name of the Google Cloud SQL database.
  4. Click Test Connection to ensure that the connection is configured properly.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Configure the Amazon DynamoDB Connection

You can configure a connection to Amazon DynamoDB from the Connections tab. To add a connection to your Amazon DynamoDB account, navigate to the Connections tab.

  1. Click Add Connection.
  2. Select a source (Amazon DynamoDB).
  3. Configure the connection properties.

    The connection to Amazon DynamoDB is made using your AccessKey, SecretKey, and optionally your Domain and Region. Your AccessKey and SecretKey can be obtained on the security credentials page for your Amazon Web Services account. Your Region will be displayed in the upper left-hand corner when you are logged into DynamoDB.

  4. Click Connect to ensure that the connection is configured properly.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Configure Replication Queries

CData Sync enables you to control replication with a point-and-click interface and with SQL queries. For each replication you wish to configure, navigate to the Jobs tab and click Add Job. Select the Source and Destination for your replication.

Replicate Entire Tables

To replicate an entire table, click Add Tables in the Tables section, choose the table(s) you wish to replicate, and click Add Selected Tables.

Customize Your Replication

You can use the Transform feature to customize your replication. The Transform feature allows you to specify which columns to replicate, rename the columns at the destination, and even perform operations on the source data before replicating. To customize your replication, click the Transform button in the Tables section and customize the replication.

Schedule Your Replication

In the Schedule section, you can schedule a job to run automatically, configuring the job to run after specified intervals ranging from once every 15 minutes to once every month.

Once you have configured the replication job, click Save Changes. You can configure any number of jobs to manage the replication of your Amazon DynamoDB data to Google Cloud SQL.
