Today’s digitalized enterprises rely on real time data and their systems are not designed to afford downtimes in terms of data supply. For this reason, several enterprises have been adopting digital strategies to ensure that business data remains highly available, no matter what happens in the background, and have thus reformed the traditional methods of storing and backing up data. Owing to their complex enterprise data, modes of computing, and diversified database platforms, these digitally transformed companies replicate data using hybrid data infrastructures.

According to a recent survey conducted by Unisphere Research in partnership with Quest software, the databases in hybrid infrastructures continue to expand in size and complexity and at the same time by integrating cloud technologies with these databases, associated enterprises have been able to keep information intact. The survey also shed light on the rate at which big data and cloud computing are driving enterprise data replication for disaster recovery, offloading report workload from transactional databases, data integration, peer-to-peer replication, and distributing data across enterprises.

According to several data managers, accurate replication of enterprise data reduces downtime while increasing the data availability. In today’s digital world, data replication is considered as a key strategy to support hybrid infrastructures and digital data services. Almost 89 percent of enterprises who replicated their data reported a substantial increase in making end data available for the users and customers. On the other hand, companies reported that business continuity improved by 83 percent as a result of replicating enterprise data.
