Oracle GoldenGate

It is particularly useful in situations where ACTIVE DATA GUARD cannot handle the desired outcome. It can be used to support cross-platform migrations not supported by Active Data Guard which is a far cheaper solution to DR. It is suited for migrations that require zero downtime as there is bi-directional capability built into the product. It is also useful when the source and target are of different databases such as Oracle to SQL Server as the target. It is overkill if all you require is a physical standby that is open read-only.

TIBCO Data Virtualization

Well suited to read data from Excel files, although to set up an efficient and error-proof process it requires you to create a foundation and that is quite time consuming, but once it's there, it works well.Solution is structured nicely in a folder hierarchy.Less apppropriate when you need to add a lot of business logic to the data, if you need to enrich the data. Such logic is hard to implement and slows down a lot.Less appropriate for creating real-time insights, caching or storing on database is almost always required to get good performance.

TIBCO Data Virtualization

  • Rich data connectivity and intelligent analysis to discover explicit and implicit relations between data in various sources.
  • Intelligent and rich query optimization algorithms to minimize pressure on source systems and make use of the performance enhancements capabilities of the source systems.
  • There is one version of the TDV- tool that holds all functionality. No additional licenses needed, everything is included.
  • MPP-functionality (TDV 8.0.0) makes automatic query distribution over large (big data) clusters possible and guarantees very high performance with querying 100's of millions of rows.
  • The TDV Studio application combines the use of ANSI-SQL (you can script for more complex tasks) with a graphical user interface for modeling the data layers, both supporting fast development of data and web services. TDV Server is a complete package with all the enterprise grade functionality an organization may need.

Cons

Oracle GoldenGate

  • Setting Up Oracle GoldenGate as HA in an Oracle RAC environment. While this is possible to do and there is documentation out there, I've found that specific Oracle GoldenGate and Oracle RAC experience is needed in order to make this happen. That level of experience does not exist everywhere.
  • Monitoring Oracle GoldenGate. Currently there are two main options for monitoring Oracle GoldenGate, the first, GoldenGate Monitor, does not scale well as it becomes very non-performant when you have more than 10-15 GoldenGate Managers reporting to it, the second, Oracle Enterprise Manager, while getting better still requires a lot of manual configuration to have Oracle GoldenGate talk to the OEM agent. While this has got a lot better with 12c GoldenGate, I still feel that there is room to improve here.
  • Unable to replicate certain Data Types. Again, less of an issue in 12c Oracle GoldenGate, but there are still some Data Types that Oracle GoldenGate is unable to replicate.

  • It is versatile but it also makes it quite complex if you haven't already thought it out fully before you start writing the views.
  • Performance is highly dependent on queries used

Once set up, it's very easy to use and keep running, it's getting to that point that can make it cumbersome to some. Also, depending on the data that you want to replicate, the configuration files can become quite cumbersome to maintain. Learning curve can be high for some who are not as experienced with databases and transactions.

It has a drag-and-drop feature and a good list of data adapters which makes it easy to thread across elements of various data sources.

Oracle Support for Oracle GoldenGate has been quite responsive and quite helpful in the few situations where we've needed it. Furthermore, the documentation on Oracle GoldenGate is so good that we often do not need to contact support with issues as the fix is already documented and able to be run by us without needing to open a ticket.

We've had Oracle consultants come as well for training days to talk about new features, parts of Oracle GoldenGate we may not be using and things of that nature. The consultants they send are great as they're very knowledgeable about all things Oracle GoldenGate and great resources for any questions or concerns you may have with the product.

We used Oracle University for our Oracle Golden Gate Training and it was top notch. We were able to turn our whole DBA team to Oracle GoldenGate newbies to Oracle GoldenGate troubleshooting experts in a matter of a few days, while this obviously did not come cheap, the company felt that it was worth the investment.

If Oracle GoldenGate is new to your organization, expose as many DBAs as possible to it. Having your whole team fluent in it will overcome early operational hurdles and allow it to more quickly become an accepted and supported part of your supported platform for your team that will enable the business to use it to its fullest.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle GoldenGate

It wasn't easy to set up replication to a message queue using SharePlex. We had challenges using the product when the application was doing a lot of "rollbacks to savepoint". SharePlex always showed a lag.When I was testing SharePlex, there was no way to offload the workload from the DB server while using it.

TIBCO/Composite Data Virtualization tool competes against Denodo and Red Hat data virtualization tools. While they have comparable features. The TIBCO product is stronger as far as performance and scalability. Denodo was superior when it comes to metadata capabilities, as well forward-engineering and reverse-engineering using data modeling tools such as ERwin or Sybase PowerDesigner.

Have never had any issues with scaling Oracle GoldenGate itself, however Oracle GoldenGate Monitor does have scaling issues, but with Oracle GoldenGate now able to be monitored by Oracle Enterprise Manager, this is no longer an issue, in my opinion.

Return on Investment

Oracle GoldenGate

  • As Oracle GoldenGate integrated well with the Oracle products we were already using, we didn't need to spend additional time and money to purchase or develop an integration solution.
  • XStream and Active Data Guard licenses come free with Oracle GoldenGate, reducing overhead costs.
  • Eliminated the need to scale our workstations up in terms of hardware resources. Creating read-replicas to offload read requests gave more opportunities to scale horizontally.
