You can use Data Transmission Service (DTS) to synchronize data between two data sources in real time. This feature applies to multiple scenarios, such as active geo-redundancy, geo-disaster recovery, zone-disaster recovery, cross-border data synchronization, query load balancing, cloud business intelligence (BI) systems, and real-time data warehousing. This topic describes how to create, monitor, and manage a data synchronization task.

Background information

Manage a data synchronization task

The following figure shows the steps to manage a data synchronization task.

Step Description
1. Prepare for data synchronization Before you use DTS for data synchronization, prepare the environments that are required for the source and destination databases.
2. Create a data synchronization task Create a data synchronization task by completing simple configurations in the DTS console.
3. (Optional) Manage the data synchronization task when it is running
4. Stop the data synchronization task Stop the data synchronization task if you no longer need the task.
