In our ongoing Data Vault Friday series, our CEO Michael Olschimke engages with a challenging question from our audience, aiming to find an elegant solution to a complex scenario.

“I’m trying to find an elegant way of addressing the following problem.

You have a DV2.0 Insert Only BI deployment fed by multiple OLTP systems. One of these OLTP systems will be subject to a disaster and associated recovery process. This will be done with a loss of 3h worth of data from the OLTP in question. During the 3 hours, multiple loads into the DV were completed.

I’m trying to avoid an effectivity satellite for each hub.”

In this insightful video, Michael explores strategies for handling data from multiple source systems with disaster considerations in a Data Vault 2.0 Insert Only BI deployment. The question prompts a discussion on avoiding the use of an effectivity satellite for each hub, offering alternative approaches to address the challenges posed by data loss during disaster recovery.

Michael shares practical insights and considerations for designing resilient solutions within the Data Vault framework while optimizing the balance between complexity and efficiency.
