Unlock the power of change data capture and replication with new, serverless Datastream. We’re announcing Datastream, a serverless change data capture (CDC) and replication service, available now in preview. Introducing a new change data capture (CDC) and replication service that works across heterogeneous databases, cloud and on-premises, for real-time analytics.
Today, we’re announcing Datastream, a serverless change data capture (CDC) and replication service, available now in preview. Datastream allows enterprises to synchronize data across heterogeneous databases, storage systems, and applications reliably and with minimal latency to support real-time analytics, database replication, and event-driven architectures. You can now easily and seamlessly deliver change streams from Oracle and MySQL databases into Google Cloud services such as BigQuery, Cloud SQL, Google Cloud Storage, and Cloud Spanner, saving time and resources and ensuring your data is accurate and up-to-date.
Datastream provides an integrated solution for CDC replication use cases with custom sources and destinations

"Global companies are demanding change data capture to provide replication capabilities across disparate data sources, and provide a real-time source of streaming data for real-time analytics and business operations," says Stewart Bond, Director, Data Integration and Intelligence Software Research at IDC.
However, companies are finding it difficult to realize these capabilities because commonly used data replication offerings are costly, cumbersome to set up, and require significant management and monitoring overhead to run flexibly or at scale. This leaves customers with a difficult-to-maintain and fragmented architecture.
Datastream is taking on these challenges with a differentiated approach. Its serverless architecture seamlessly and transparently scales up or down as data volumes shift in real time, freeing teams to focus on delivering up-to-date insights instead of managing infrastructure. It also provides the streamlined customer experience, ease of use, and security that our customers have come to expect from Google Cloud, with private connectivity options built into the guided setup experience.
Datastream integrates with purpose-built and extensible Dataflow templates to pull the change streams written to Cloud Storage, and create up-to-date replicated tables in BigQuery for analytics. It also leverages Dataflow templates to replicate and synchronize databases into Cloud SQL or Cloud Spanner for database migrations and hybrid cloud configurations.
Datastream also powers a Google-native Oracle connector in Cloud Data Fusion’s new replication feature for easy ETL/ELT pipelining. And by delivering change streams directly into Cloud Storage, customers can leverage Datastream to implement modern, event-driven architectures.
Customers tell us about the benefits they’ve found using Datastream. That includes Schnuck Markets, Inc., “Leveraging Datastream, we’ve been able to replicate data from our on-premises databases to BigQuery reliably and with little impact to our production workloads. This new method replaced our batch processing and allowed for insights to be leveraged from BigQuery quicker,” says Caleb Carr, principal technologist from Schnuck Markets. “Furthermore, implementing Datastream removed the need for our analytics group to reference on-premises databases to do their work and support our business users.”
In SSMS, we many of may noticed System Databases under the Database Folder. But how many of us knows its purpose?. In this article lets discuss about the System Databases in SQL Server.
Learn about Azure SQL Database | Cloud Database as a Service | serverless | Microsoft Azure | SQL. Azure SQL Database is the intelligent, scalable, relational database service built for the cloud. It’s evergreen and always up to date, with AI-powered and automated features that optimize performance and durability for you. Serverless compute and Hyperscale storage options automatically scale resources on demand, so you can focus on building new applications without worrying about storage size or resource management.
