  • Configuring for Reverse Initial Loads

    From time to time we are approached with the question of how to do initial loads of data in two directions with SymmetricDS, not just one direction. This feature is available in SymmetricDS and isn't hard to configure. An understanding of how initial loads work in general, combined with a few settings, is all that is needed. This article will walk you through a tutorial on initial loads in general and will then discuss the configuration needed to do a 'reverse' initial load.

  • JumpMind presents on ORPOS Centralization

    The demands of Abercrombie & Fitch’s international expansion goals required new store systems and infrastructure. After selecting Oracle Retail Point-of-Sale (POS) as their new POS platform, A&F sought to eliminate the requirement for a store server in order to reduce per store hardware requirements, centralize infrastructure management and further harden offline capabilities. Abercrombie will be sharing the challenges and solutions for the migration from a store centered client/server architecture to a centralized model that supports a multi-brand, global retail chain.

     

    Follow along in the presentation on Oracle POS Centralization for more details.

  • Stop Guessing if Your Data is Correct

    SymmetricDS promises to sync your data, but how do you know it really worked? How do you really know 2 databases are in sync? Or, maybe you have well-meaning users that come along after the sync, changing data unexpectedly, and throwing production out of whack.

    Whatever the case, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to compare any 2 databases, and know exactly what the differences are and be able to prove they are in sync? That’s where a new, experimental feature of SymmetricDS comes in. It’s called simply dbcompare. Dbcompare is slated for SymmetricDS 3.8, but if you watch closely, it’s fully included starting in SymmetricDS 3.7.30.

  • Synchronizing Android Applications - Part 1

    SymmetricDS now has its web-enabled, fault-tolerant, database synchronization software available on the Android mobile computing platform. The Android client follows all of the same concepts and brings to Android all of the same core SymmetricDS features as the full-featured, Java-based SymmetricDS client. The client is designed to be referenced as a library to run in-process with an Android application requiring synchronization for its SQLite database.

  • Syncing Data to Redshift

    Let's sync data to the cloud with Amazon Redshift and SymmetricDS Pro. I'll take you through the steps to launch a cluster, sync data to it, and enable S3 for fast bulk loading.
