Big Data Trailblazer by Anthony Brooks-Williams, CEO

By 2022, 90% of corporate strategies will explicitly mention “information” as a critical enterprise asset, and “analytics” as an essential competency, according to a 2019 Gartner report. As more companies look to cloud-based technologies as an efficient, cost-effective method of maximizing data use, they must address challenges associated with increasing complexity in data management as well as concerns about efficiency and security.

HVR’s real-time data replication technology is a scalable solution that allows data-driven organizations to harness the power of their data. With its log-based change data capture functionality, HVR enables efficient high-volume data streaming between multiple on-premise systems such as Oracle, SQL Server, SAP HANA, Db2 z/OS, and modern cloud-based systems such as AWS, Azure, Kafka, and Google Cloud. Broad and heterogeneous platform support gives HVR customers freedom in their selection of data technologies in order to best address their unique needs.

HVR is deployed in a distributed architecture, which is flexible and scalable, and can support a wide variety of use cases.

Additional benefits include:

  • Accuracy: Compare, HVR’s data validation feature, ensures data correctness
  • Security: In-flight data is compressed and encrypted as data from hundreds of on-premise and cloud databases is replicated without creating firewall vulnerabilities
  • Low-latency: HVR’s proprietary compression and log-based CDC capabilities allow for fast and non-intrusive data replication

HVR is committed to providing organizations with the ability to make informed business decisions using the freshest data possible. With a team that boasts over 200 combined years of data replication and integration experience, customers who choose HVR get a solution, not a tool. For more information, visit www.hvr-software.com.
