Sync Jobs

On this page

  • Types of Sync Jobs
  • Get Started

Sync jobs transfer data from your relational database to MongoDB. Sync jobs use project-level Mapping Rules to distribute data to your MongoDB database.

Relational Migrator offers two different sync job types:

Snapshot: Snapshot sync jobs run once, typically for a point in time migration strategy.

Continuous: Continuous sync jobs cover new incoming data for a zero-downtime Change Data Capture (CDC) migration strategy. Continuous jobs run a snapshot stage first, followed by a CDC stage that captures database updates in near-real time. When you run a continuous sync job, your source and destination database data remain in sync.

Note

Private Preview : Kafka Deployment Model

The Kafka deployment model of Relational Migrator allows you to run longer-running snapshot or continuous sync jobs with improved resiliency. This model is currently available in private preview. If you are interested in learning about or testing this model, please contact your MongoDB account team.

You can perform the following tasks from the Data Migration tab.
