An update to GoldenGate Inc.s flagship data synchronization platform offers better monitoring of data synchronization projects in real time, officials said.
GoldenGate 7, which was announced last week, is used for applications such as business continuity, disaster recovery, data center consolidation and integration, system migration, application integration, and active data warehousing, said company officials, in Sausalito, Calif.
The chief new feature of this release is Activity Console (see screen), a Web-based interface for monitoring data synchronization activities. It provides customers with a real-time view of data movement latency, volume levels and system balancing requirements across all platforms and adds monitoring, diagnosis and alert notification capabilities, officials said.
GoldenGate is improving the openness of the platform in Version 7 by supporting the MySQL open-source database for the first time and adding native support for log-based data capture for Sybase Inc. databases. The company now supports most databases, including Oracle Corp.s namesake database, SQL Server, DB2, Informix, Teradata, TimesTen, Enscribe, IMS/ VSAM and Ingres.
In addition, GoldenGate 7 features enhanced support for detecting and resolving conflicting information within databases to ensure data accuracy and faster data loading.
GoldenGate last week announced its 2,000th customer. The privately held company, founded in 1995, reports profitability for the past seven years and more than $10 million in revenues in its latest quarter.
The company sells its data synchronization software to companies in banking, financial services, health care, telecommunications, government and aerospace.
GoldenGate 7 is available now with pricing starting at about $50,000, officials said.
Also in the data integration space last week, ZettaWorks LLC announced a partnership with Unbound Technologies Inc. to provide users of wireless devices with real-time access to business applications.
The Houston-based companies are forming a wireless Universal Applications Messaging practice that will extend ZettaWorks integration of TIBCO Software Inc.s integration applications to wireless devices. This would support an enterprises efforts to connect to clients and employees, as well as connect salespeople to vendors, ZettaWorks officials said.
