Overall Satisfaction with Oracle GoldenGate

We use Oracle GoldenGate as a part of our high availability solution. The entire database is replicated in real time to other geographical facilities and makes the system available for 24/7.
  • GoldenGate is good for real-time data replication.
  • The database upgrade and migration was possible with zero downtime because of having GoldenGate in place.
  • It also works with different databases other than Oracle
  • The monitoring side could be improved with easy to use reporting.
  • The database upgrade and migration was possible with zero downtime because of having GoldenGate in place. So, it saved a lot for not having any downtime.
We used the SharePlex replication product about 6 years ago. It had limited functionalities, was not able to fulfill our needs.
One of many use cases is, GoldenGate can be used in an active-active database configuration, meaning, both source and destination databases can be operational in a bi-directional fashion.

It was backed by Oracle and was easy to use.
For the active-active database replication we do, I would still use the GoldenGate considering the ease of usage and the stability it has.
