Advanced Replication for The Masses – Oracle GoldenGate 12c for the Oracle Database.
By Doug Reid on Nov 15, 2013
Customer requirements for data replication are reaching very high levels. The demand is for continuous, uninterrupted flow of data in real-time while lowering IT costs and improving efficiencies. This part of the market constitutes the middle to upper end of the data replication market and customers are broadly educated and well versed in replication technologies as never before. As a result, they demand well-designed, well-engineered, and well-crafted products – possessing advanced features that compliment their evolving IT systems.
Vendors offer a wide variety of replication products and services, but with the exception of Oracle these other vendors rely on brute force log scraping, inefficient fetching of data types not supported or encrypted, and heavy reliance of manual configuration and tuning when dealing with highly tolerant RAC systems or high data volumes. Oracle GoldenGate 12c is at the forefront and differentiates itself in the market by providing a truly well-designed, well-engineered and smart solution for the Oracle database.
What are the key new features of Oracle GoldenGate 12c for the Oracle database?
- Support for Database 12c Multitenant feature which allows smooth transitions to private cloud deployments.
- The new Integrated Delivery for Oracle Database. This feature enables simpler and more powerful configurations with a streamlined process model that coordinates multiple parallel apply processes, which improve performance for high volume implementations.
- Enhanced high availability via integration with Data Guard Fast Start Failover
- Improved security with tighter integration with the Oracle wallet
Oracle GoldenGate is at the vanguard of extreme performance and the one standout feature of the 12c release is Integrated Delivery. Oracle GoldenGate now leverages a lightweight streaming API built into Database 12c for Oracle GoldenGate. The Smart Product Design of the Oracle GoldenGate 12c Integrated Delivery feature enables simpler and more powerful configurations that coordinate multiple parallel apply processes to improve performance for high volume implementations.
This high performance feature leverages numerous database parallel apply servers for automatic dependency aware, parallel apply. What this means is that Integrated Delivery will automatically balance transactions across these apply processes and coordinate the transactions to maintain order and insure referential integrity, while delivery data at speeds not feasible by other vendors.
