SharePlex

Zero-impact Oracle® database replication and near-real-time data integration

SharePlex is a replication and data integration solution for Oracle® 10g, 11g, and 12c, as well as other databases, such as Hadoop® and SAP® Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE). It ensures business continuity while maximizing operational efficiencies. It provides a near-real-time copy of production data without impacting your OLTP system’s performance and availability.

You can replicate multiple copies of data on premises, remotely, or in the cloud to:

  • Ensure high availability and fast disaster recovery.
  • Minimize risks and downtime associated with migrations.
  • Improve performance of OLTP systems.
  • Harness real-time reporting and data warehousing.
  • Optimize the use of business intelligence applications.
  • Facilitate delivery of data via Java Message Service (JMS) or SQL/XML files to structured and unstructured databases, such as SQL Server®, DB2®, Netezza®, Teradata®, Greenplum®  and more.

This high-performance, cost-effective alternative to other Oracle 10g, 11g, and 12c replication tools delivers maximum availability. And only SharePlex can provide data compare and repair and in-flight data integrity, plus monitoring and alerting functionalities — all in one affordable package.

Features

  • Database Replication –Provides high availability for both active-passive and active-active Oracle 10g, 11g, and 12c database configurations.
  • Near Real-time Data Integration –Uses change data capture functionality to enable delivery of data to structured and unstructured databases (SQL Server, DB2, Sybase, Hadoop, Greenplum, Netezza, Teradata, and more) for migrations, analytics, and business intelligence.  
  • Ease of Use – Installs quickly and easily, so you can use everything required for data replication within 15 minutes – without ever requiring any add-ons or management packs. Provides educational resources in our online community to further optimize replication.
  • Data Accuracy and Integrity – Ensures target instances are accurate representations of the source database. Provides peer-to-peer monitoring and conflict detection and resolution (predefined and user defined). Uses compare-and-repair to reveal anomalies between source and target for rapid delta resolution – it’s the only tool on the market that repairs data anomalies.
  • Improved Performance – Offloads process-intensive reports outside the main production database server. Replicates large volumes of changes without impacting network bandwidth. 
  • Oracle-to-Oracle Migration Failback – Reverts quickly to the original system should something go wrong on the post-migration system.
  • Support for Oracle Standard Edition and Enterprise Edition – Supports mixed environments with differing source and target operating systems, database editions, and database versions, including Oracle 10g, 11g, and 12c, clustered environments, and ASM, RAC, and Exadata X2, X3.
  • Flexible Datatype Support – Supports LOBs, including SecureFile LOBs, UDTs, LONG, Varray, Oracle Advanced Compression, Oracle Transparent Data Encryption (TDE), and Hybrid Columnar Compression (HCC) for Exadata platforms.
  • Unrivaled Affordability – Offers all the functionality of Oracle GoldenGate, including a monitoring and alerting interface, plus more – in one complete package – at a fraction of the price.
