SAN FRANCISCO, USA. 18 MAY 2022 - Crate.io, the enterprise data management company, today announces the roll-out of its new Logical Replication feature as part of its CrateDB 4.8 release. With Logical Replication, CrateDB’s users can replicate data from multiple disparate locations back to a central site so that data can be analyzed and aggregated at the core.
For enterprises, accessing and centrally analyzing data collected across separate locations to drive the business forward is critical. Whilst data needs to be stored in these locations for local processing, there is also a need to access this data in a consolidated place for global analytics. As a result of CrateDB’s Logical Replication, data consolidation and central analytics on data stored across several locations is enabled.
To ensure only required data is replicate, users can either select all data from local instances or only a subset of this data (e.g., individual tables) for replication. This, in turn, saves time, cost and reduces unnecessary load and complexity.
Jan Weber, CrateDB Product Manager, said: “The introduction of Logical Replication is a key functionality for CrateDB Edge use cases, and especially for customers who use CrateDB on Kubernetes both on cloud and edge. It allows users to leverage the full potential of their Kubernetes deployments: store data locally, aggregate, and report on events in a centralized location. This is a powerful tool for our customers that are collecting vast amounts of data across multiple locations. Having access and being able to consolidate for analytics is especially important, and that’s exactly what Logical Replication enables at scale.”
