When you use DataWorks to synchronize data, you can use only exclusive resource groups for data integration to run real-time data synchronization nodes. This topic describes the resources and configurations required to run real-time data synchronization nodes.

Background information

  • Resource planning and preparation

    Before you use a data synchronization node to synchronize data, you must purchase an exclusive resource group for data integration and add the resource group to DataWorks for subsequent use.

    For more information about exclusive resource groups for Data Integration, see Overview of Data Integration.

  • Network connections

    An exclusive resource group for Data Integration is essentially a group of Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instances. After you purchase and create such an exclusive resource group, it is isolated from other services. You must associate the resource group with a virtual private cloud (VPC) to ensure network connectivity between the resource group and data sources during subsequent data synchronization.

What to do next

After you plan and configure resources, you can configure data sources. You must configure network connectivity for the data sources and permissions to access the data sources. If the data sources that you want to use do not need to be configured, you can proceed to the next step to add the data sources. After the data sources are added, you can create a real-time data synchronization node.
