SQL Anywhere read-only scale-out

Separately licensed component required

Read-only scale-out requires a separate license. See Separately licensed components.

Read-only scale-out is a configuration that allows you to offload reporting or other operations that require read-only access to the database.

A scale-out tree consists of the root node and copy nodes. The root node of a scale-out system has the only copy of the database that is writable. The root node can be either a single database, or a database mirroring system. Below the root node, there can be one or many branches of copy nodes. A copy node is a database server that runs a copy of a database for read-only access, and a copy node can be the parent of other copy nodes.
