In the context of Oracle databases, replication refers to the processes of copying and moving database objects and data from one Oracle database to another database, data warehouse, or other type of data repository. Oracle replication software is used to enhance the availability of mission-critical systems, provide localized data access, offload data for reporting and enable data warehousing initiatives.
Oracle replication software makes it easier for firms to implement and manage Oracle replication and Oracle change data capture, a process by which DML changes made to an Oracle database are captured and delivered to another application or system.
Until now, data replication and change data capture in Oracle environments was generally executed by features embedded in Oracle Database: namely, Oracle's built-in replication tool, Oracle Streams, and native CDC functionality. Because these features were recently discontinued, however, Oracle users are now being encouraged to use Oracle GoldenGate, the vendor's flagship data integration software product, or forced to find alternative Oracle replication software.
Although GoldenGate is a robust and powerful Oracle replication software package which is tightly integrated with the Oracle ecosystem, many users will find that it is difficult to set up and manage, in part because of its lack of a comprehensive graphical UI and complex topology. Licensing costs can add up quickly because full functionality necessitates the purchasing of add-ons. Fortunately, there are more affordable, reasonably priced Oracle replication software products available now that are designed by firms specializing in enterprise data integration.
Qlik Replicate (formerly Attunity Replicate) is an economical, high-performance data replication and data ingestion platform that is not only quick to learn and deploy but also versatile, providing support for the broadest range of source and target platforms. This includesall major relational databases, a variety of data warehouses, and even mainframes and Hadoop distributions. So whether it's Oracle replication software or MySQL replication softwareyou need, your teams can standardize on a single architecture and one intuitive toolset that lets you move data efficiently across all of your enterprise data sources.
Unlike Oracle GoldenGate, Qlik Replicate (formerly Attunity Replicate) does not require you install or maintain agents on source or target systems. Our unique log-based CDC for Oracle technology enables real-time data integration, without placing unnecessary overhead on your source systems. Our user-friendly graphical interface eliminates the need for manual scripting while automating the steps required to setup and manage replication tasks. Qlik Replicate (formerly Attunity Replicate) web-based console lets you configure database schema mappings and content-based filtering—from any standard browser—through intuitive drag-and-drop functionality. An unlike Oracle GoldenGate, Qlik Replicate (formerly Attunity Replicate) provides a single, fully automated process for all major sources and targets.
Why waste your time on costly, cumbersome replication tools when there's a simple, cost-effective solution that can actually boost your productivity and accelerate data integration projects?
