Read replica of huge objects

One of our clients need to sync data from salesforce. Couple of questions regd this. 1. Client needs to sync to postgres db to have other non-sfdc clients connect to it in read-only mode. Is this something Grax does? 2. Some of those objects are huge like 500m. How does Grax handles syncing these objects? Does it handles batching and syncing in incremental automatically or clients have to do the work to setup jobs to sync for a month of data and so forth?
