Many cloud integration platforms only support Synchronization tasks, running on their infrastructure in the cloud. FoxWeave supports Synchronization tasks too, but also supports Migration tasks, and allows you to run them
On-FoxWeave, On-Premise and On-PaaS.
- Synchronization: This type of integration app only sync’s data that has been created/updated/deleted after the application is first started i.e. it does not sync existing/historical data. In FoxWeave, a synchronization application runs indefinitely (until it is manually stopped).
- Migration: This type of integration app sync’s all existing/historical data from the source application. FoxWeave is able to support migration tasks because of its ability to run integration tasks in multiple environments i.e. On-FoxWeave, On-Premise and On-PaaS. In FoxWeave, a migration application stops after sync’ing all existing/historical data has completed.
Note that because of the potential scaling/performance issues associated with Migration Apps (potentially huge amounts of data), they are currently not permitted to run on FoxWeave infrastructure. For now, Migration Apps must be run On-Premise or On-PaaS. In time, we will provide a FoxWeave hosted migration solution.
Apps that support migration will be displayed when creating a Migration App.
