Oracle users have for long relied on the capabilities of Oracle LogMiner to replicate data between database platforms. With the release of Oracle 19c (19.1), Oracle announced that the continuous_mine option for the dbms_logmnr.start_logmnr package is desupported and is no longer available. This makes the process of real real-time replication and change data capture (CDC) significantly more complex for Oracle users.
Oracle’s decision is extremely limiting to Oracle users. Equalum is 100% committed to customer flexibility, the Equalum Platform solves this challenge by providing two data ingestion methods that are fully supported in Oracle 19c as well as previous Oracle versions.
Replicating Data with the Equalum - Oracle Binary Log Parser: We provide our own native interface, Equalum - Oracle Binary Log Parser, that bypasses LogMiner and directly mines Oracle redo/archive log files, making the entire data ingestion process more efficient. The Equalum - Oracle Binary Log Parser provides substantial advantages over any market solution based on Oracle Log Miner by:
Replicating Data with the Equalum - Oracle LogMiner Interface: Equalum also supports data replication and CDC using LogMiner in Oracle and allows users to effectively hide all the complexities imposed by the 19c version.
Whatever the method of your preference, Equalum will provide you with the most advanced Oracle integration providing proprietary performance tuning and a load process that decouples loading from processing and enabling re-streams and efficient downstream transformation. The Equalum data ingestion platform leverages fully-managed Spark and Kafka, along with a complete library of operators for data transformation and manipulation and an intuitive user interface that delivers the best change data capture (CDC) and replication experience on the market.
Native, plug-and-play methods of integration with Oracle all major databases and systems; breakthrough use of CDC creates minimal system strain.
Speed and Scalability
Combines unique scalability capabilities with the power of Spark and Kafka to provide extremely fast data ingestion between Oracle and any number of sources and targets.
In addition to replication, it eliminates complex ETL programming and scripting with a zero-coding approach to perform comprehensive transformations and manipulations.
Provides the best-in-class security, monitoring, fault tolerance, and availability.
A Fortune 500 oil and natural gas exploration company uses Equalum to stream drilling rigs data, approximately 20,000 events/second with latency of 1 second from Oracle and other sources to a data analytics environment – powering real-time analytics for drill site optimization.
