Oracle Cloud Marketplace (https://cloudmarketplace.oracle.com) is an online store selling a wide variety of business applications and services which can complement an existing Oracle Cloud implementation. All these applications and services available on the Cloud marketplace are offered by Oracle approved and registered partners and developers.
Oracle GoldenGate is one of the many applications available on Oracle Cloud Marketplace and described very simply, it is the cloud-based version of Oracle GoldenGate that also provides us with all the core functionality of GoldenGate as a product including the scalability, reliability and manageability.
After we provision GoldenGate on Cloud Marketplace, we have access to a compute node which includes an image of the latest 19c Oracle GoldenGate software (188.8.131.52.4) as well as Oracle Database Client software (11g, 12g, 18c, and 19c) pre-installed.
GoldenGate on Cloud Marketplace is available with the choice of deploying using Classic Architecture as well as Microservices Architecture.
This provides us a replication solution from not only on-premise to the cloud as well as cloud-to-cloud platform.
We need an Oracle Cloud Account and access to compute node resources within Oracle Cloud Tenant. Supported shapes are VM.Standard2.4, VM.Standard2.8, VM.Standard2.16 and VM.Standard2.24.
In addition, we also need to provide an SSH Public Key which will enable us to connect to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure hosted on the GoldenGate compute node as the opc user.
In this example we will be configuring real-time replication from an Oracle 12c Release 1 database on OCI-Classic (Gen 1) to an Oracle 18c database hosted on OCI ATP (Gen 2) using Oracle GoldenGate running on Oracle Cloud Marketplace.
In Part 1, we will look at the various screen shots from the process of deploying Oracle GoldenGate Microservices on Oracle Cloud Marketplace.
