StarQuest Data Replicator Plus v6.12 Release Notes

January 2023


StarQuest Data Replicator (SQDR) is a replication software product that allows you to copy data between IBM Db2, Oracle, MySQL, Informix, and Microsoft SQL Server database environments.

The base StarQuest Data Replicator software runs on Windows and provides full refresh replication, which copies all the source data that you specify for replication, regardless of when that data was last replicated. This provides a “snapshot” of the specified source data at the time of replication.

SQDR Plus is a separately licensed component that provides incremental replication support for SQDR users. Incremental replications copy only the data that has changed, reducing the amount of data that is transferred and allowing the replication to occur more frequently.

SQDR Plus also provides the following advanced features:

The following topics are addressed in these Release Notes. Refer to SQDR Plus Quick Start Guide for detailed information about installing StarQuest Data Replicator Plus for the first time. The SQDR Plus Quick Start Guides include instructions for installing both SQDR and SQDR Plus. Refer to the SQDR Control Center (SQDR Manager) Online Help for detailed information about using the StarQuest Data Replicator Plus software.
