Oracle GoldenGate Free is the same powerful Oracle GoldenGate that enterprises rely on worldwide, packaged for simple download, ease-of-use, and a fully-featured experience.  It is the entire application portfolio delivered in an Oracle Docker container ready to be deployed anywhere – on premises, in OCI, or on other cloud platforms.

GoldenGate Free provides all features of the licensed GoldenGate product and additionally provides a recipe-driven user interface to easily create and manage replication pipelines. It is limited for use with databases up to 20 GB in size, is supported through community forums instead of Oracle support, and cannot interact with full use, licensed GoldenGate products. For detailed limitations please review the licensing guide once available.

Easy to Use

GoldenGate Free has been designed to lower the bar of entry for real-time data integration. This starts with simple deployment of a pre-built docker container without an installation process. Developers can get started quickly through a recipe-based design process that provides recipes for common use cases to define and execute replication pipelines. Experienced GoldenGate developers will also appreciate access to the complete microservices API and UI to configure GoldenGate processes as usual.


The GoldenGate Free environment is contained in a self-sufficient docker container with all required components. It can connect to external source and target databases and interact with other GoldenGate Free containers to distribute replication processes. The container provides all elements of GoldenGate such as the microservices environment, admin client and other commands.
