Moving to the Cloud? Don’t Forget Your Data.
With all the buzz around cloud computing, it is easy to overlook one of your most precious commodities—your data. What happens with your data when you implement a private cloud architecture or public cloud?
Data integration solutions play a vital role in migrating data simply, efficiently, and reliably to the cloud; they are a necessary ingredient of any platform-as-a-service strategy because they support cloud deployments with data-layer application integration between on-premise and cloud environments of all kinds.
For private cloud architectures, consolidation of your databases and data stores is an important step to take to be able to receive the full benefits of cloud computing. Oracle GoldenGate and Oracle Data Integrator both provide you with the ability to seamlessly consolidate your data. Oracle GoldenGate’s real-time and bidirectional data replication capabilities between heterogeneous systems allow you to perform data consolidation without interrupting your business operations. In addition, it minimizes risks with a failback option after the switchover and gives you the flexibility to test the target environment as long as you need.
Once you have moved your data to the cloud, Oracle Data Integrator and Oracle GoldenGate can connect your on-premise enterprise systems and the cloud environment by moving data in bulk or as real-time transactions across geographies. In addition, Oracle Data Integrator offers data services for service-oriented architecture and business process management solutions that enable agile application delivery and shared data services for organizations.
For public cloud architectures, Oracle offers a complete and extensible set of integration options. Oracle Cloud enables you to move data through Oracle SOA Suite using REST APIs to Oracle Messaging Cloud Service—a new service that lets applications deployed in Oracle Cloud securely and reliably communicate over Java Messaging Service. As an example of loading and transforming data into other public clouds, Oracle Data Integrator supports a knowledge module for Salesforce.com—now available on AppExchange. Other third-party knowledge modules are being developed by customers and partners every day.
