The benefits and multiplicity of options that are available for data storage in the realm of Amazon Web Services (AWS) landscape can be attributed to the flexibility and cost efficiency of the cloud computing platforms and solutions. Despite the increasing number of options, CIOs of many enterprises are burdened with challenges that prevail right from the initial cloud migration stage to the integration phase between on-premise and cloud. Also, most companies fail to realize the amount of data that are actually interchanged between the systems on an ongoing basis. To surmount these complexities, CIOs require solutions that facilitate data capture and change that can be propagated to assure cloud migration, synchronization, as well as real-time integration between various applications running in the cloud. Fulfilling these requirements is a firm, HVR (High Volume Replication) Software that is certified to run on AWS platform and delivers effective solutions to capture data from various data sources to achieve real-time data integration. “Our integration solution is very modular, flexible, and requires network connectivity between source and destination to perform integration,” says Mark Van de Wiel, CDO at HVR Software.
The San Francisco, CA based HVR software has carved itself a niche by providing a reliable, secure, and scalable HVR solution to global corporations, and leading government and defense organizations. With AWS’ easy-to-use and setup interface combined with HVR Software’s unique data replication capability across the different cloud platforms, the company has an edge over its counterparts. Further, the solution performs compressed, large block data transfer with optional encryption to ensure efficient and secure integration across the wires. Additionally, HVR Software’s real-time data replication software seamlessly mitigates the challenges and risk of data loss during cloud migration, facilitating action in less time.
We provide an end-to-end solution to real-time replication and believe that it goes beyond just providing the most efficient way to move data out of the source into destination
“We provide an end-to-end solution to real-time replication and believe that it goes beyond just providing the most efficient way to move data out of the source into destination,” points Van de Wiel. Furthermore, the real-time replication solution enables customers to synchronize the data from on-premise system to cloud and vice-versa. For example, HVR leverages ‘S3’ platform to capture data from various sources to integrate into petabyte-scale data warehouse service—Amazon Redshift. The solution also provides one-time-load capability alongside data comparative ability to validate data integration.
For instance, PostNL, the postal company from Netherlands encountered data integration challenges and thus approached HVR Software to deploy its solutions. The customer had many branches with individual databases and was looking to integrate their data and centralize information in the headquarters. “The case study roots back to the days when there was only high latency and low network bandwidth communication between sources and destinations,” explains Van de Wiel. HVR Software not only played the vital role in the on-going integration between various applications of PostNL but it also provided the core data integration technology that is currently being utilized for cloud migration. The success story and the firm’s long-standing association with PostNL adds credence to the functionality of HVR Software's solutions in eliminating challenges pertaining to cloud integration and migration.
For the future, Van de Wiel and HVR team foresees continued opportunities in the cloud domain alongside AWS support. Further HVR Software is planning to expand its reach to other possible platforms to enable efficient log based cloud integration as well as upgrade its offerings for cloud integration, migration, and data replication. The firm is en route to develop technology that supports rich streaming of analytics in the cloud environment.
