StarQuest Data Replicator : fast, reliable, full-refresh data replication between DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle databases.
The StarQuest Data Replicator (SQDR) software provides:
StarQuest Data Replicator (SQDR) efficiently replicates data between IBM DB2, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server databases, providing necessary data integration for Internet and intranet publishing and electronic commerce, data warehousing and data mining. SQDR directly enables these solutions through robust and efficient bi-directional snapshot replication of data.
StarQuest also offers the separately licensed components SQDR Plus for iSeries and SQDR Plus for DB2 UDB that provide incremental replication support for SQDR users. Incremental replications copy only the data that has changed, reducing the amount of data that is transferred and allowing the replication to occur more frequently.
Meeting Mission Critical Database Replication Needs
When you're integrating a client/server application, a data warehouse, or the latest system for the Web, ease of use and comprehensive administration are key requirements. SQDR meets these requirements by providing advanced tools for easy system setup and centralized graphical administration of all replication functions, including filtering, scheduling, and statistics gathering.
In a heterogeneous environment, applications generally require sending data from the host to distributed systems and consolidation of data from distributed systems to the host. To satisfy these diverse needs, SQDR allows you to move data between IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle databases.
Flexible Replication Options
SQDR supports replication of selected columns ("vertical partitioning"), selected rows ("horizontal partitioning"), and replication of selected columns from selected rows (combined vertical and horizontal partitioning). The replicated data can either replace existing tables or be merged on a row-by-row basis. SQDR also supports derived destination columns and data transformations, including automatic conversion of date and timestamps.
SQDR allows you to control the timing of the replication. Whether it's a repeatable one-time on-demand replication, a one-time scheduled replication, or recurring replication at predefined times, SQDR lets you replicate your data when needed.
Security with Use of Management
Mission-critical data requires mission-critical security. That's why SQDR is fully integrated with both SQL Server/Windows NT security and the native security of your DB2 system.
SQDR provides full statistics so you can monitor and view replication activity using the SQDR Manager or Windows NT Performance Monitor. For each replication operation, you can track:

SQDR System Requirements
You can install and run the StarQuest Data Replicator (SQDR) software on any of the following operating systems:
The Data Replicator requires a control database in which to store definitions for sources, destinations, and subscriptions. You can use any of the following editions of SQL Server for the SQDR control database. If you do not already have a SQL Server installation, you can obtain the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000) or SQL Server Express free of charge from www.microsoft.com/downloads (search for MSDE). The SQDR Technical Document Installing SQL Server for a Control Database provides more information about obtaining and installing MSDE 2000 or SQL Server Express for use as an SQDR control database.
Using SQDR, you can replicate data to and from any of the following database systems:
Incremental replication is supported from OS/400 v5r2 and later using SQDR Plus for iSeries, and also from DB2 UDB for Linux, UNIX, and Windows v8.2 and later using SQDR Plus for DB2 UDB. SQDR Plus is licensed separately from the base SQDR product.
StarQuest Data Replicator Plus
StarQuest now offers the separately licensed component, SQDR Plus, to provide incremental data replication support for SQDR users. SQDR Plus is currently available for IBM iSeries, including IBM i 6.1 (i5/OS V6R1), and for IBM DB2 UDB for Linux, UNIX and Windows, including DB2 for Linux UNIX and Windows v9.7.
SQDR Plus is the solution of choice for companies who need real-time data replication and database synchronization. The significant benefits that SQDR Plus provides are:
SQDR Plus for iSeries Requirements
SQDR Plus for DB2 UDB for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Requirements
