A big data analytics system typically requires a large network of tens, hundreds, or even thousands of heterogeneous, purpose-built servers, each performing its own portion of the task. All of these systems must intercommunicate with each other in real-time, and integrate with high-speed, flexible, and reliable data distribution. The Shadowbase data replication engine performs this function, becoming the “glue” that binds these servers and data sharing in a big data analytics system. Shadowbase replication has the ability to rapidly and reliably reformat and transfer large amounts of data between heterogeneous databases and applications in real-time, thereby enabling it to play a major role in the big data explosion. We look at several technologies that interact together to extract valuable business information from the noise of big data, and the role that Shadowbase software solutions play to integrate these technologies.
