Overview
Bottom rule

The IBM data replication V11.4 portfolio for Linux, Unix, Microsoft Windows, and System i delivers trusted data synchronization, including change data capture capabilities, to replicate information between heterogeneous data stores in near-real time. Powered with the capabilities of IBM InfoSphere® Data Replication, this software portfolio provides replication with transactional integrity to support big data integration, continuous availability, consolidation, warehousing, and business analytics initiatives. It also supports zero-downtime migrations and upgrades.

Version 11.4 of the data replication portfolio builds on the strengths of InfoSphere Data Replication and introduces new capabilities, such as change data capture Kafka target engine, as well as flexible licensing options in a new Data Replication offering. These combine to simplify growth and provide a highly scalable, low-impact, and enterprise-ready data replication platform for dynamic, near-real time, incremental delivery of transactional relational data to a broad spectrum of database and big data targets.

New capabilities in the version 11.4 portfolio

New change data capture Kafka target engine

The IBM data replication portfolio's CDC family of target engines extends to support Apache Kafka. The combination of CDC with the Confluent platform 1 for Apache Kafka delivers an ideal big data landing zone and point of enterprise integration for changing transactional source data. This combination of a highly scalable clustered data environment, designed for streaming and managing volatile data with near-real time changed data feeds, simplifies the delivery of operational data to multiple consumers such as Hadoop/HDFS, cloud data stores such as dashDB™, and event-driven consumers.

The CDC for Kafka engine can replicate using either the Java™ API for highest performance or the REST API for optimum deployment flexibility. This capability is automatically included with all other targets in the new Data Replication and Data Replication Targets for z/OS® Sources offerings. It is also included in a new add-on to InfoSphere Data Replication, InfoSphere Data Replication non-RDBMS Targets.

1
The Confluent distribution of Apache Kafka is required.

Enhancement to CDC SQL Server capabilities

This release also extends CDC support for Microsoft SQL Server to include replicating to and from SQL Server synchronous candidates in Always On availability groups.

The IBM data replication V11.4 portfolio also extends support to include Microsoft SQL Server 2016.

Q Replication support for DB2 V11.1 and performance improvements

Q Replication enhancements support the new DB2 data types, BINARY and VARBINARY, and extended row size support (wide tables). BINARY and VARBINARY data types enable binary string data to be stored and manipulated without the overhead of using a binary large object (BLOB) type. A binary string is a sequence of bytes that can be used to store graphics, sound, or mixed media.

Extended row size support (wide table support) enables you to create a table where its row length can exceed the maximum record length for the page size of the table space. Without extended row size support, the maximum number of bytes allowed in a table is dependent on the page size of the table space.

Additional enhancements in support of load and general performance improvements are also included.

New packaging and simplified pricing options in Data Replication V11.4

New source-driven licensing model for streamlined portfolio pricing options

Data Replication V11.4 is a new offering that provides the same capabilities as InfoSphere Data Replication and features an alternative licensing model based on the capacity of the source relational databases being replicated. Licenses for Data Replication V11.4 include unlimited use of all target engines for the licensed RDBMS sources at no additional charge, making it easier to expand the use of data throughout the enterprise and into the cloud.

New Linux, Unix, and Microsoft Windows  target packaging for IBM System z® replication users

Data Replication Targets for z/OS Sources, V11.4 provides simplified per installation fixed price licensing to empower replication of DB2 for z/OS, IMS™ or VSAM data on System z to any CDC Linux, Unix, and Microsoft Windows target, including relational databases, InfoSphere Information Server/DataStage®/QualityStage®, Apache Hadoop/webHDFS, dashDB, Cloudant®, FlexRep, and Apache Kafka (the latest addition to the CDC family).

Data Replication Targets for z/OS Sources provides the CDC Apply Engines that can be used with InfoSphere Data Replication for DB2 for z/OS2, InfoSphere Data Replication for IMS for z/OS2, InfoSphere Data Replication for VSAM for z/OS2, and InfoSphere Classic Change Data Capture for z/OS 2 to deliver System z data to the rest of the enterprise.

2
System z source products are licensed separately.

New non-RDBMS target package for use with InfoSphere Data Replication sources

InfoSphere Data Replication non-RDBMS Targets, V11.4 provides simplified per installation fixed price licensing to add Apache Hadoop/webHDFS, Flat File, and now Kafka targets to InfoSphere Data Replication3. This eliminates the need to count nodes or PVUs of a target Hadoop or Kafka cluster.

InfoSphere Data Replication sources are licensed separately.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
