FAQ

1. Will CLOUDBASIC remove table and column level compression which is supported by the Enterprise version only ?

Yes, CloudBasic handles decompressing automatically during the migration. Due to the elastic nature of cloud storage, features such as data compression no longer make sense.

2. We use TDE encryption, which is supported only in SQL Server Enterprise. Will CloudBasic be able to replicate from  Enterprise to Standard ? What are our options to replace TDE with RDS SQL Server Standard ?

RDS Storage level encryption can be utilized instead (with RDS supplied or private key). CloudBasic supports replication from SQL Server Enterprise with TDE encryption to RDS SQL Standard with storage level encryption.

RDS Multi-AZ is not required in order for CloudBasic Multi-AR to create Multi-AZ (Zone-to-Zone) or Multi-AR (Cross-Region) Read-Replicas.

Ultimately a comprehensive business continuity and high-availablity solution can be delivered by extending AWS RDS Multi-AZ with CB RDS Multi-AR/Geo-Replicate.

The Canadian Football League is the highest level of competition in Canadian footballLearn how the Canadian Football League uses CB RDS Multi-AR to overcome RDS Multi-AZ limitations, deploys multiple Read-Replicas for HA and offloading of primary RDS.

ofxLearn how Forex/OFX uses CB RDS Multi-AR/Geo-Replicate to create Read-Replicas for High-Availability, Reporting, off-loading of Primary and Disaster Recovery.

This solution relies entirely on CloudBasic Multi-AR (Multi-AZ or Cross-Region) Asynchronous Mirroring. Unlimited number of Multi-AZ or Multi-AR Read-Replicas are supported. Read-Replicas can be created in another zone for HA and off-loading of primary, another AWS region for DR, or even in another cloud provider such as Azure or Google GCE to create a comprehensive DR solution by distributing the cloud infrastructure, and also to avoid cloud provider lock-in.
