Pros
"I am very impressed by the scalability of AWS Database Migration Service.""It's pretty useful when we need to migrate something big from a different type of database that AWS Data Migration Services supports.""The tools are very user-friendly.""The process is now simplified because there won't be maintenance. Usually we can take a snapshot of the number I need. We can automate the backup snapshots and we can restore it very quickly. We get many benefits from the application."

"They've recently improved the ease of implementation.""The most valuable feature is data replication capability.""The CDC feature is interesting.""What I have found the most valuable about GoldenGate is that it does real-time and no-downtime migrations. Its migrations are fast. There are not many tools like it on the marketplace.""GoldenGate can connect and collect data from multiple sources, such as SQL Server.""It moves the data as you set it up, and it works. I am also very impressed with its stability and scalability. It is not super feature-rich, but the new releases have more functionality. It recently had more native integrations with Oracle Database. If you are using it against an Oracle database, it has a lot more functionality."

Cons
"I think that Amazon needs to improve the migration scenarios after analytics""Database Migration Service could be more integrated. I think that it makes sense to add integration to these functions. For example, AWS Glue has a feature called Orchestrator to create data flows, and that's more straightforward.""Migrating from here and pushing the data from on-premise to AWS cloud is a big challenge and a few more services from AWS would be helpful. For example, we are currently using ILDB internet tools which move data from on-premise to the AWS cloud. A few more services would be really helpful for me to move the master data."

"Troubleshooting issues is not always the easiest. It should be easier to troubleshoot. Their support can also be improved. They don't read your problem statement and waste a lot of time. GoldenGate for big data is actually a separate license. It is sort of a separate product, but it might fall underneath your GoldenGate category. If we're talking about big data, its interaction with big data sources is poorly documented.""The solution is quite costly, and if they could reduce their pricing, it would be more economical to implement.""I would like to see the interface more graphical and easier to use.""The problem with GoldenGate is it is very complex to use. You need heavyweight skills to use it.""We struggle with memory. It's limited. However, it may be because of our unique business case and how we use it that it's limiting for us.""It should be easier to integrate this solution with non-Oracle databases, including cloud-based solutions hosted on Azure."

    Top Answer: 
    What is the OLAP that you are using? Hosted in Cloud or on-premise?  The target DB should have its tool to extract data.
    Top Answer: 
    What I have found the most valuable about GoldenGate is that it does real-time and no-downtime migrations. Its migrations are fast. There are not many tools like it on the marketplace.
    Top Answer: 
    I think that the price for one CPU with a computer is about $17,000. A small solution probably needs at least four CPUs and up to eight. That will add up to $68,000 to $132,000. You can't go that much… more »
