On Tuesday, February 25, 2020, Equalum presented at the "How to Move Data from Oracle to Postgres in Near-Real-Time" PostgresConf webinar that is now available on-demand. At the end of the webinar, you will learn how to accurately and safely move data from Oracle to Postgres. The webinar discusses:

  1. The importance of extremely scalable data ingestion when migrating from Oracle to Postgres
  2. Why real-time data transformations are critical
  3. Why complexity is no longer acceptable and how to radically simplify data ingestion

Replicating live data (thousands of events per second) from Oracle to Postgres doesn’t have to be difficult. But the latency and complexity of traditional solutions, such as ETL, legacy CDC and homegrown scripts, have proven to be costly and inefficient. When you are replicating live data from one data platform to another, the process should be simple, inexpensive and as near real time as possible in order to provide a positive impact on decision making and reporting.The Equalum approach of using tried and true open source data frameworks is not only required for the sophisticated Postgres professional, it is paramount to the stability and extensibility of our software. Equalum allows enterprises to succeed with known protocols, excellent flexibility and true production quality deployments of mix-platform data pipelines.
