Oracle Gets Real-Time, Acquires GoldenGate Software

Today, Oracle has acquired GoldenGate Software. GoldenGate is a vendor of real-time data integration software, designed to do fast, log-based transactions of data in the enterprise.

For a company best known for its enterprise databases, buying technology that facilitates speedy access to data is a brilliant move. With a decoupled architecture that can deal with large volumes of information, GoldenGate is a proven platform that should lend much-needed data management acumen to Oracle’s capabilities.

Financial details about the deal have not yet come out of either company, so the exact valuation of GoldenGate is unknown. But what is for sure is that there’s nothing Oracle needs more than a way to do real-time monitoring and management of data transactions.

The prime use-case of GoldenGate’s technology — which is broken down in to two products: GoldenGate Director and GoldenGate Veridata — is during migrations and upgrades.

It’s during those transitional periods that enterprise databases (or any large databases, for that matter) are most vulnerable. By acquiring GoldenGate, Oracle is not only gaining the sexiness of real-time, but they’re shoring up an area of weakness for their architecture.
