  • Clustering SymmetricDS

    Setting up SymmetricDS for clustering can be done a few different ways and can help solve a few different use cases.   This blog will address a few of the common setups we see while utilizing clustering.

  • Load Balancing SymmetricDS Pro

    For most of our large clients where SymmetricDS is playing a mission critical role in their organization, our customers take advantage of SymmetricDS Pro's out of the box capabilities to be load balanced. While SymmetricDS does a great job with hands off recovery in cases of hardware or infrastructure failure, most clients want as little downtime as possible. They simply don't want a single point of failure in their synchronization scenario. The good news is, with SymmetricDS Pro, load balancing is simple and straight forward.

  • Using Wildcards to Sync Database Tables

    Quickly select and dynamically add tables to database synchronization using wildcard characters. This powerful feature can save time during configuration and even eliminate the need to make changes to configuration in the future. Since data capture triggers can be created from a schedule or on-demand programmatically, wildcard characters open up the possibility of new applications, such as using SymmetricDS database replication in Platform As A Service (PaaS) where new tables created by a client are automatically replicated between high availability servers. This article will demonstrate using wildcard characters to sync some tables while ignoring others.
