Oracle has announced an updated version of Oracle GoldenGate 12c, which provides real-time data integration and heterogeneous database replication. The latest release offers expanded support for heterogeneous databases and big data solutions, greater manageability, and support for hybrid cloud environments.

“In our focus as a leader in the data integration market, it is crucial that we maintain and optimize our support for both Oracle and non-Oracle systems,” said Jeff Pollock, vice president of product management at Oracle, commenting on GoldenGate's expanded support for heterogeneous sources.  "Inherent in the concept of integration is that we can effectively cover both like and unlike platforms, and that we offer our customers the ability to effectively capture and move their data regardless of which systems, platforms, and vendors their data originates from.  Our commitment to a broad support for sources has been, and will continue to be, of great importance to our overall investment strategy with Oracle GoldenGate.”

New features include a new migration utility, Streams2OGG, that helps Oracle Streams customers move to Oracle GoldenGate and leverage its latest features, such as integrated capture and delivery processes and advanced conflict management.

New RDBMS and Big Data Source Support

In addition, Oracle GoldenGate 12c now supports real-time data capture and delivery for the latest Informix database versions on all major platforms.

The new release adds support for real-time, log-based capture and delivery for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and 2014 as well as MySQL Community Edition databases.

And, in support of big data, the Oracle GoldenGate Adapter for Java enables integration with Oracle NoSQL, Apache Hadoop, Apache HDFS, Apache HBase, Apache Storm, Apache Flume, Apache Kafka, and others, and allows real-time, data streaming into big data targets.

With the SOCKS5 internet protocol compliance, Oracle GoldenGate 12c now leverages customers’ SOCKS compliance setting for data transfer, enabling them to replicate between on-premises and cloud environments without an extra VPN connection open.

GoldenGate Veridata Updates

Informix support has also been extended to Oracle GoldenGate Veridata so IBM Informix customers can integrate and replicate high volumes of real-time data throughout their heterogeneous business environments. Veridata is a high-speed data-comparison and repair solution that identifies, reports on, and fixes data discrepancies between heterogeneous databases.

In addition to comparing heterogeneous databases and reporting data discrepancies, Oracle GoldenGate Veridata 12c now provides data repair and revalidation capabilities for out-of-sync data.
