Overall Satisfaction with Oracle GoldenGate

We implemented Oracle GoldenGate on at least 400 database environments. We have a large infrastructure with tons of applications to assign installation and repair jobs to field technicians. In some of the applications, we can't afford latency or replication errors. GoldenGate has been a great tool.
  • I was able to find what I needed, but it took longer than I think it needed to. The system was navigable, but not until I had training on it. Before that I was clueless on how to find anything.
  • It allows the replication in real time from the Oracle database in RAC to the contingency database, through the immediate replication of the data in the redo logs, without the need to wait for them to be written at the level of the archive logs.
  • You can have multiple different data sources coming into this Oracle GoldenGate. You are not limited to only Oracle databases.
  • The time that it takes to implement Oracle GoldenGate. Because you can have multiple databases going through it it can take a long time to set it up.
  • It was more complicated than it needed to be. Without the training I feel that it isn't intuitive. I think maybe the structure should be reinvented so that it is more intuitive.
  • GoldenGate replication is only for databases, it would be nice to use it across file and folders
  • Using Oracle GoldenGate for modifying data transformation as it replicates, this is very key if you need your data to appear a certain way, especially important in reporting.
  • GoldenGate also allows us to have the data visualizations that helps management at meetings to see what is happening at a higher level.
  • We wanted zero downtime for our business and both sites need to be active active.
Oracle GoldenGate is a data integration and virtualization management solution for all businesses. It offers real time data integration and replication services for IT management. We liked Oracle pricing model since we already have a working relationship with them. Training was also essential in getting the application on-boarded, and Oracle provides a vast amount of material.
GoldenGate helps us to keep a replica of the database consistent, in real time, which is used for reportage in read only mode, In this way we manage to reduce the load of the production database, redirecting all the generation of reports to the contingency site, leaving all the processing capacity available for the provision of services of the productive applications. We are also replicating data from a source database to a target database. GoldenGate works well for that purpose.
