Cons
"The recovery features could improve in Informatica Data Archive.""Informatica Data Archive could improve by providing training. Training is one area where we lack, there are not very many trained resources in the market for sales, GPM, proposals, new offerings, or new features that are being added to this solution. It would be really helpful for consultants, like me, to understand the new, cool features these solutions are constantly adding. Training is something, that should be in place."

"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.""Oracle GoldenGate's installation is not user-friendly, we had to read a lot of documentation for the setup and configuration.""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.""The problem with GoldenGate is it is very complex to use. You need heavyweight skills to use it.""I would like to see the interface more graphical and easier to use.""The front-end management isn't very good.""The solution is quite costly, and if they could reduce their pricing, it would be more economical to implement."

    Overview

    Retire legacy applications, manage data growth, improve application performance, and maintain compliance with structured archiving.

    Oracle GoldenGate is a real-time data integration and database replication solution. It can detect data events and route them across networks at very low latencies and integrates well with 100s of combinations of non-Oracle databases, data stores, and clouds.

    Oracle GoldenGate Features

    Oracle GoldenGate has many valuable key features, including:

    • Simple to use web interface
    • Fast and easy installation or provisioning
    • Command line access via AdminClient that can run anywhere
    • RESTful APIs for DevOps
    • Offers built-in monitoring but also can be easily adapted to roll your own monitoring
    • APIs are protected by Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) authentication.

    Oracle GoldenGate Benefits

    Some of the benefits of using Oracle GoldenGate include:

    • Oracle GoldenGate is deeply integrated with the Oracle Database (logging, redo, backup and recovery layer, security, administration, data guard, data vault, autonomous database etc.).

    • It is the most stable, performant, and reliable CDC / replication solution for Oracle.

    • High performance: Oracle GoldenGate is capable of sub-second latency for data movement. featuring low impact capture, routing, transformation, and delivery of transactional data.

    • GoldenGate is the only CDC / replication tool that keeps pace with new and emerging innovations (security, features, data types, etc) in the core Oracle Database.

    • The solution supports a wide range of use cases, from conventional OLTP data replication and high availability to data lake ingestion or multi-cloud ingestion, SaaS application replication, and messaging replication.
    • GoldenGate is the only CDC / replication technology certified for Exadata, Exadata Cloud Service, and Exadata Cloud at Customer.

    • For fault-tolerance, GoldenGate has its own mechanism to keep track of how much work is completed and how much is pending. This mechanism is independent of any database and ensures, with the help of automatic gap-resolution, that no data loss occurs.

    • GoldenGate uses its own proprietary format files for keeping the committed data coming from the source database, making it independently functional irrespective of the database in use.

    • To maintain the performance and consistency, only committed data is sent. Uncommitted data is captured by GoldenGate, but is discarded after receiving a Rollback.

    • With GoldenGate, data sending is in “near real time,” which reduces the possibility of latency.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by Oracle GoldenGate users.

    PeerSpot user Steve-J., Cloud Migration Software Consultant - UK & EMEA at 1PLACE, says, "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."

    Pinak S., Senior Manager of System and Database at ESL, mentions, “We like how in GoldenGate the heterogeneous database is supported. Sometimes the client actually needs a schedule and needs to ensure the state of databases for reporting purposes. With that in mind, we have been able to configure GoldenGate for certain schema. The solution is quite stable. They've recently improved the ease of implementation.”

    A Database Administrator at a manufacturing company explains, "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."

    An Oracle ERP DBA Consultant - Oracle Super Cluster T5-8 Admin at a government comments, "GoldenGate can connect and collect data from multiple sources, such as SQL Server."
