We are delighted to announce the availability of Oracle GoldenGate Free 21c, 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 a container image ready to be deployed anywhere – on premises, in OCI, or on other cloud platforms. The container can run on environments such as Podman, Rancher, or Docker.
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 and is supported through Oracle's community forums. It cannot interact with full use, licensed GoldenGate products. For detailed limitations please review the documentation.
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 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 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.
