Data Replication10Data replication is a process of frequent copying of data from one server to another, to ensure synchronization and consistency across data users accessing multiple storage devices. Different from backups, data replicas update frequently rather than retain one unchanged copy for an extended period. Many data replication options also include disaster recovery and data protection.Rubrik1https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/rv/1m/IHMDCR65KNT1.PNGCarbonite Availability (formerly DoubleTake)2https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/Qg/Sc/9PXH8CXT45HM.JPEGSharePlex3https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/12/fY/5HC8NTA1P3NF-180x180.PNGEMC RecoverPoint4https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/xW/Gb/SGTVSU5KIT5G-180x180.JPEGNetApp SnapMirror5https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/lW/d9/7KQPW1G551QU.jpegEMC Symmetrix Remote Data Facility6https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/xW/Gb/SGTVSU5KIT5G-180x180.JPEGFalconStor NSS7https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/C1/HJ/TWD09FHC51WK.jpegVeritas InfoScale Operations Manager (formerly Veritas Volume Manager)8https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/PR/y9/D8IAT2TI9NIP-180x180.JPEGHitachi Universal Replicator9https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/RG/Yt/MJIDJV0VP3AN-180x180.JPEGEMC AppSync10https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/xW/Gb/SGTVSU5KIT5G-180x180.JPEGPure Storage Purity11https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/3J/9l/M341EN3P9RCC-180x180.JPEGIBM InfoSphere Data Replication12https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/yf/sf/DNSXTG99HOK3-180x180.JPEGIBM Spectrum Protect13https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/yf/sf/DNSXTG99HOK3-180x180.JPEG

Data Replication Software

Data Replication Software Overview

What is Data Replication Software?

Data replication software supports data security, disaster resilience and business continuity by rapidly creating a data replica in a location independent of the data’s source. The software provides central management of replication policy across heterogeneous data sources and targets. Different from backups, data replicas update frequently rather than retain one unchanged copy for an extended period.


Data replication software ensures consistency for end-users accessing multiple data stores in the normal course of business. Other potential uses are zero-downtime data migration, and multi-site replication for business continuity in case of site disaster. Data replication is a necessary part of long-term data retention and archiving. More recently, data replication software is offered as capably providing real-time transactional data delivery and integration into data lakes to support big data initiatives.


Vendors boast data policy compliance, any-point-in-time recovery and failover, and continuous replication with limited risk of data loss. They compete on providing minimum disruption to network activities and low bandwidth consumption, without cost to security.

Data Replication Software Features

Data replication application provides the following features:

  • Continuous replication with many recovery points

  • Cross-platform replication (e.g. disk to cloud, cloud to disk)

  • Database replication in remote locations

  • Automated compliance-driven data retention

  • Instant failover, automatic user redirect to secondary server

  • Monitor replication environment via GUI

  • Disaster recovery simulation, testing

  • Synchronous data replication with zero data loss

  • Asynchronous data replication for performance

  • Orchestration of data replication, migration

  • Perform analytics upon data sets separately

Pricing Information

Data replication software is available on a paid subscription basis. Pricing scales with number of data sources to be replicated, or volume of data. It may also scale with data destination, and whether or not data storage destination is managed by the replication service provider.
