OCI Database Migration integration with OCI GoldenGate (Now available).

In the previous workflow, the user manually deployed and managed a GoldenGate marketplace instance in their tenancy.  Users had the responsibility to correctly size and create an OCI Marketplace instance and configure it to be used in OCI Database Migration.  Now, users can save time and avoid the manual setup.  The user can enable online migration using GoldenGate by simply selecting an option.

The benefits of this change: 

  • Speeds up the online migration setup process 
  • Intelligently scales GoldenGate deployments based on the migration size/load
  • Optimizes resource utilization by reclaiming/recycling GoldenGate deployments when not required
  • Presents customers with comprehensive cause/action information in an event of a failure
  • Provides capability to interactively adjust GoldenGate parameters directly from the OCI Console

For those who specifically need to deploy a marketplace instance, the service will allow them to do so by entering their GoldenGate details as an advance option.
