What Are the Differences Between Real-Time Migration, Real-Time DR, and Real-Time Synchronization?

Item

Real-Time Migration

Real-Time Synchronization

Real-Time DR

Scenario

Migration can be performed between different cloud platforms, from on-premises databases to cloud databases, or on cloud databases across regions.

Real-time analysis, report system, and data warehouse environment

You can perform disaster recovery between on-premises databases and cloud databases, or between databases across cloud platforms.

Characteristics

  1. Homogeneous databases are migrated as a whole.
  2. Tables, data, indexes, views, stored procedures, functions, database accounts, and database parameters can be migrated.
  3. You can choose to migrate all objects, tables, or databases based on your service requirements.
  1. Homogeneous and heterogeneous databases are synchronized to maintain continuous data flow between different applications.
  2. Tables and data can be synchronized to meet various flexibility requirements.
  3. Objects can be synchronized at the table level or database level.
  1. Data disaster recovery between homogeneous databases can be performed.
  2. The remote primary/standby switchover can be achieved.
  3. Instance-level disaster recovery is supported. You cannot select databases or tables as objects.
