Data Integration Overview
Data integration means the flow, transfer, and consolidation of data among various data sources. As data grows exponentially in volume and data value is more profoundly explored, data integration has become increasingly popular and urgent. To avoid the situation that TiDB becomes data silos and to integrate data with different platforms, TiCDC offers the capability to replicate TiDB incremental data change logs to other data platforms. This document describes the data integration applications using TiCDC. You can choose an integration solution that suits your business scenarios.
Integrate with Confluent Cloud and Snowflake
You can use TiCDC to replicate incremental data from TiDB to Confluent Cloud, and replicate the data to Snowflake, ksqlDB, and SQL Server via Confluent Cloud. For details, see Integrate with Confluent Cloud and Snowflake.
Integrate with Apache Kafka and Apache Flink
You can use TiCDC to replicate incremental data from TiDB to Apache Kafka, and consume the data using Apache Flink. For details, see Integrate with Apache Kafka and Apache Flink.
