Stelo + Microsoft Azure Synapse

Stelo helps you connect data from Microsoft Azure Synapse Analytics

In many data-intensive industries, companies are starting to stream data into cloud-based delta lakes while maintaining their existing data warehouses. This approach allows them to invest in new technologies like Microsoft Azure Synapse Analytics without impacting ongoing operations. Others would prefer to get rid of their in-house data center all together. Businesses require more flexible data solutions as they continue adopting more complex data system architectures, but enterprise-level vendors tend to lock customers into contained solutions.

Stelo easily connects and distributes information to Synapse so users can engage their data for cutting edge analysis, machine learning and AI. Stelo's delta lakes connector is compatible across your data ecosystem to efficiently propagate changes into delta lakes while maintaining the same sequence between the source and the destination. Optimize your data with Synapse in tandem with your traditional data warehouse and scale your data pipeline into a cost-effective solution

Connects From

Flexible Deployment Icon_Noun 4351350_Green Customizable

Anywhere-to-Anywhere

Avoid vendor lock-in. Stelo uses heterogeneous replication for bi-directional support across all source and destination types. Our open-standards approach allows us to remain vendor-agnostic while providing highly flexible deployment models.

Rapid Deployment Icon_Noun 3967969_Green Quick Setup

Rapid Deployment

Streamline your deployment plan without costly delays. Stelo typically deploys in less than a day and cuts production time down from months to only weeks.

 Time and Labor Icon_Noun 4636078_Green Easy-to-Use

Set It and Forget It

Simple installation with GUI interface, configuration wizard, and advanced tools makes product setup and operation straightforward, with no programming needed. Once running, Stelo reliably operates in the background without requiring dedicated engineering support to maintain and manage. Alter, add, and drop schema changes are replicated automatically.

Near-Zero Footprint Icon_Noun 1465960_Green Low Impact

Near-Zero Footprint

Our process provides ultra-low CPU load (less than 1% typical) to minimize production impact and avoid operational disruption. No source or destination software installation required. Only transfer data you need thanks to Dataset Partitioning.

Data Scalability Icon_Noun 1304652_Green Cost-Efficient

Unlimited Connections

A single instance can support multiple sources and destinations without additional licensing. The Stelo license model is independent of the number of cores to either the source or destination, so you only pay for the capacity required to support the transaction volume. Your data ecosystem can change over time without additional costs.

Automatic Restoration Icon_Noun 4647448_Green Reliable

Automatic Recovery

If a connection is broken, no data is lost. Stelo will automatically resume replication without needing to re-baseline in the event of a connectivity failure.

Data Warehousing: It's Time to Evolve Your Data Management Strategy

The “new frontier” of data ingestion goes beyond warehousing to enable a lot more choice. Some companies prefer to stream data into cloud-based delta lakes while maintaining their existing data warehouse; that way, they can take advantage of new technologies from companies like Synapse while maintaining their existing applications. Others would prefer to get rid of their in-house data centers all together.

Stelo encourages customers to make improvements by integrating technologies that allow them to use their data better. We bring the robustness and power our customers have come to expect from data warehousing to delta lakes, too. Advancing data management strategy is not about displacing current software and hardware investments; it’s about making it easier to leverage new technologies that can unlock your data’s embedded potential.

FAQ

Does your software require a dedicated engineer?

Some data replication solutions require that you pay for a dedicated engineer, which substantially increases costs and suggests that the software may be complicated and difficult to use. Good replication software does not require a babysitter. Once running, Stelo reliably operates in the background without needing dedicated engineering support to maintain and manage.

What does "real-time "look like?

Once replication source and destination databases have been defined, Stelo uses change data capture techniques to capture and apply only change data. Our multithreaded processing is far more efficient than other replication tools on the market, not only to provide near real time data availability, but also best in terms of reliability and robustness. Stelo’s custom technology blurs the overhead of the WAN connection and effectively delivers near real-time (under 1 second) replication, regardless of whether it's going into cloud or on-premise locations. If your use-case requires sub-second latency at all times, we will size the replication instance according to your high-water mark of DML activity to ensure near real-time data availability.

Does Stelo work with event hubs?

Stelo’s data ingestion process ideally balances near real-time data replication and lossless change data capture (CDC). The Kafka interface can also be used to communicate with cloud-based streaming services such as Azure Event Hubs for Kafka, the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Streaming service, Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka, and IBM Event Streams.

Stelo can meet your requirements for high-speed access to legacy system change data (such as IBM Db2, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server) to drive information into new generation data engines like Apache Hive, Azure Storage, and Azure Data Lake Storage.

Azure Event Hubs for Kafka can be used in place of a Kafka cluster, either as a message broker between Stelo and the consumer, or as a method of storing data into Azure Blob Storage or Azure Data Lake Store.
