Near-Instant and automatically sync all your databases with the Data Cloud
New York, June 15th 2022 – Rivery, the leading SaaS ELT platform announced its next generation CDC capabilities for Snowflake users at this year’s annual Snowflake Summit. In addition, Rivery is proud to announce that Snowflake has recognized its expertise with joint customers in the media vertical and awarded Rivery with the Snowflake Media Competency Badge, which is part of the newly launched Snowflake Partner Network (SPN) Competency Program.
Rivery’s Change Data Capture (CDC) automatically syncs database changes in real time with Snowflake’s Data Cloud. As a result, it enables faster data projects and minimizes resource expenditure. In the past, database migrations relied on bulk reading and batch windows. Data was not synced in real-time. These factors made data integration more difficult, with data engineers wasting a lot of time on source configuration. Rivery’s new proprietary CDC, by contrast, uses near real-time streaming to sync a database with your cloud data warehouse using the best practices on each database’s demand. By analyzing a database’s log, change data capture detects data changes as they happen, and immediately syncs these changes with your cloud DWH.
The upside of CDC is that data is always up to date, with source databases continuously synced to the Data Cloud. No database resources are ever wasted. Database logs are scanned to track changes, which adds no additional SQL loads to the system. In addition, bulk selecting becomes a thing of the past since only the modified data is synced.
Time-efficient and cost-effective
Rivery’s change data capture streams continuously into a client’s staging area. With certain cloud data warehouses, clients are charged for updating database tables with each new record. By leveraging the staging area, Rivery ensures real-time changes while also complying with industry best practices that generate significant cost-savings.
Change data capture records metadata changes, so teams don’t have to track them manually. Customers never have to modify table structures. And the feature also acts as a historical data archive, including for deleted rows.
