IBM Data Replication on Cloud provides a fully managed, easy to use, cloud-based replication service that allows you to focus on your business through eliminating the need to build and maintain your replication infrastructure. This new service will retain all the core data replication capabilities you’ve come to love and expect from IBM – providing efficient captures and near real-time replication capabilities – and now with a planned convenient pay-as-you-go model that dynamically scales as needed.

 In this Beta we will support the following Sources and Targets with a more thorough Getting Started focused on Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL to DB2 Warehouse on IBM Cloud (bolded below).

• Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL
• Db2 on Cloud on IBM Cloud

Db2 Warehouse on IBM Cloud, AWS and Azure
• Db2 on Cloud on IBM Cloud

Additional end points such as sourcing from Oracle and Db2 for z/OS and delivery to Kafka will be provided as we work towards delivery of a production ready and GA service.
