GoldenGate Overview

Oracle GoldenGate

  • Oracle GoldenGate software enable your mission-critical systems to have continuous availability and access to real-time data. It offers a robust yet easy platform for moving real-time transactional data between operational and analytical systems to enable both:
  • High Availability and Real Time Integration solutions

Oracle GoldenGate Solutions Overview

  • Oracle GoldenGate provides the following data replication solutions:

High Availability

  • Live Standby for fail-over solution that can later re-synchronize with your source system.
  • Active-Active solutions for continuous availability and transaction load distribution between two or more active systems.

Zero-Downtime Upgrades and Migrations

  • Eliminate downtime for upgrades and migrations.
  • Live Reporting, feeding a reporting database so that you don‘t burden your source production systems.

Operational Business Intelligence (BI)

  • Real-time data feeds to operational data stores or data warehouses, directly or via ETL tools.

Transactional data integration

  • Real-time data feeds to messaging systems for business activity monitoring (BAM), business process monitoring (BPM) and complex event processing (CEP).
  • Uses event-driven architecture (EDA) and service-oriented architecture (SOA).

How Oracle GoldenGate Works
On Source System(s):

  • Oracle GG Capture (Extract) process reads data transactions as they occur, by reading the native transaction log (redo log in Oracle). Oracle GoldenGate only moves changed, committed transactional data.
  • Filtering can be performed at the source or target – at table, column and/or row level.
  • Transformations can be applied at the capture or delivery stages. Advanced queuing (trail files):
  • To move transactional data efficiently and accurately across systems, Oracle GoldenGate converts the captured data into an Oracle Canonical Format in – trail files. With both source and target trail files, Oracle GoldenGate‘s unique architecture eliminates any single point of failure and ensures data integrity is maintained – even in the event of a system error or outage.


  • Data is sent via TCP/IP to the target systems. Data compression and encryption are supported. Thousands of transactions can be moved per second, without distance limitations.

On the target system(s):

  • A Server Collector process (not shown) reassembles the transactional data into a target trail.


  • The Delivery (Replicat) process applies transactional data to the designated target systems using native SQL calls.


  • In bidirectional configurations/solutions, this process runs the same in reverse, to concurrently synchronize data between the source and target systems.
  • Manager processes (not shown) perform administrative functions at each node.
