New OCI GoldenGate Service Delivers a Real-Time Data Fabric Platform

Oracle has announced that trusted GoldenGate technology is now available as an automated, fully-managed cloud service that customers can use to help ensure that their valuable data is always available anywhere they need it and analyzable in real time.

The new Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) GoldenGate service provides customers with a real-time data fabric platform to design, execute, orchestrate, and monitor their data replication and streaming data events. According to Oracle, the new OCI GoldenGate is the first cloud service of any major cloud provider to offer an elastic, pay-per-use solution for general purpose database replication, data integration, real-time data ingestion to cloud, and support for time-series analytics while data is in flight.

The new OCI GoldenGate service addresses event-based data integration for operational databases and analytic data stores. With OCI GoldenGate, the same technology can be applied to mission-critical operational data stores as well as for real-time data warehouses, data lakes and streaming analytics. Unifying the operational and analytic data integration fabric helps customers to simplify their data architecture, avoid fragmented, complex tooling and ensures that the data being used for analytics is both timely and trusted. A unified approach aligns the operational systems of record to the business analytics more closely than possible with legacy batch processing tools making it useful for scenarios involving decentralized and multi-cloud data.

“Oracle GoldenGate is a highly trusted data integration solution for thousands of customers worldwide, including 84 percent of Fortune Global 100 companies,” said Juan Loaiza, executive vice president, mission-critical database technologies, Oracle. “Oracle is now delivering the enterprise-hardened GoldenGate technology as a cloud-native elastic service to provide customers a simple-to-use, integrated, operational and analytic real-time data fabric. It cuts both the time and cost of creating a data integration solution in half compared to the options provided on competing clouds.”

The new OCI-native GoldenGate service automates many functions, including configuration, workload scaling, and patching while maintaining high availability. Its interface enables non-DBA users to drive digital transformation, simplifying on-prem to cloud integrations, multi-region data synchronization, data pipelines, and multi-cloud database replication. The service is also integrated with GoldenGate Stream Analytics for OCI, providing multi-cloud streaming data analytics with AI/ML, geo-spatial and time-series data.

Additionally, the service runs on the latest GoldenGate 21c micro services architecture, which allows for a global mesh of connected data resources. OCI GoldenGate’s fully encapsulated microservices enable customers to seamlessly integrate the service into their dev-ops CI/CD pipeline as an infrastructure-as-code service.  Oracle says OCI GoldenGate is also architected to integrate with on-prem Docker and Kubernetes “mesh” deployments of GoldenGate with no shared framework dependencies and no shared repository, enabling superior manageability with lower TCO. With a single click, developers and DBAs can set the service for 3x auto-scale—providing a scalable way to start small and grow as workloads increase.
