Leaders Discuss at OpenWorld: Achieving Zero Downtime Upgrades and Migrations
By Irem Radzik-Oracle on Sep 26, 2011
OpenWorld brings us another exciting session about a hot topic: system upgrades and migrations. This time it is a panel discussion between industry leaders that undertook pretty large projects with strict requirements for minimizing downtime. Fedex, SiriusXM Radio, and Dell will talk about the best practices they followed in their highly-critical migration projects and how they removed the risk of interrupting business operations leveraging Oracle GoldenGate.
On this blog site and in many of our webcasts we have talked about Oracle GoldenGate’s unique solution for upgrades and migrations. GoldenGate’s real-time, bi-directional, and heterogeneous data replication capabilities enable to switch over to the new system without downtime. It also offers a failback option by keeping the old system in synch after the switchover, in case the new system experiences a problem. In this session, we will hear from these select customers how they configured GoldenGate for their unique project requirements.
Fedex will talk about how they are moving their data centers, and SiriusXM Radio will talk about how they consolidated data models for subscription management system after the merger. Dell’s discussion will include how they migrated their Active-Active replication environment that used Oracle Streams in the past to Oracle GoldenGate.
If you will be at Open World, and have any plans for systems upgrades or migrations, don’t miss the opportunity to hear the real-life implementation stories, lessons learned and, best practice tips.
