Oracle GoldenGate – an introduction

Oracle Corporation at the end of last year has acquired GoldenGate Software Inc which is one of the leading providers of real time data integration solutions. In the words of Hasan Rizvi, Senior Vice President, Oracle Fusion Middleware Product Development ….

“GoldenGate also enables high availability and disaster tolerance with core functionality that supports real-time data integration, while preserving performance and ensuring scalability. With this capability, business-critical applications such as online banking, claims processing and online shopping continue to operate without any disruption. GoldenGate’s solutions address all types of outages as a result of upgrades, maintenance, application of patches, and application or platform migrations.

The combination of GoldenGate and Oracle is expected to provide customers with a comprehensive platform for real-time data integration that delivers continuous data-change and replication functionality across heterogeneous environments”

The product is now available for download from the OTN site as well as via the Oracle E-Delivery.com web site under the Product Pack titled Oracle Fusion Middleware . I have downloaded and installed the same and have done a bit of testing of my own trying to figure out how the product works and will be sharing the same with the community via a series of simple tutorials.

Lets get a brief idea on what products make up the GoldenGate suite:

  • Oracle GoldenGate
  • GoldenGate Director is a multi-tiered client-server application that enables the configuration and management of GoldenGate instances from a remote client which includes a browser based web interface.
  • Oracle GoldenGate Veridata is an online high-speed data comparison solution that identifies
    and reports data discrepancies between databases and sets of data
  • Coming Soon – GoldenGate Concepts and Installation of Oracle GoldenGate on AIX platform
