Take Your First Steps Toward Building Database as a Service

IT leaders are pressured to roll out new, innovative application services. And at the same time, IT teams are asked to reduce costs and simplify the IT infrastructure used to deliver these services. One of the best ways for IT to respond to this challenge is by consolidating the infrastructure and leveraging cloud architectures—particularly by consolidating at the database level and implementing a private database-as-a-service (DBaaS) environment. DBaaS is agile, efficient, and scalable and helps organizations improve resource utilization and lower capital and operational expenditures. With its new multitenant architecture, simplified management capabilities, and continuous availability, Oracle Database 12c is designed to support database consolidation.

And when it comes to moving to a private database cloud, IT teams face another major challenge: how to move critical systems to a new environment without interrupting operations. Oracle GoldenGate 12c delivers optimized support for Oracle Database 12c's multitenant architecture. With its heterogeneous real-time data replication capabilities, Oracle GoldenGate allows organizations to avoid business disruption while moving systems to a consolidated environment. In addition, with its bidirectional data replication capabilities, Oracle GoldenGate offers a failback option as well as a phased migration option to further minimize risks. Oracle GoldenGate's heterogeneity includes all major database vendors and operating systems, including SQL Server, DB2 (LUW, z/Os, iSeries), Sybase ASE, HP NonStop, and more.

Watch a new webcast, "Zero Downtime Consolidation to Oracle Database 12c with Oracle GoldenGate 12c," to hear Oracle experts discuss Oracle GoldenGate 12c, including specific architecture examples and comparisons to other database upgrade options. Learn how to remove the barriers to adopting an agile, efficient, scalable private cloud architecture, and find out how to take the first steps toward building a DBaaS environment for your organization.
