GoldenGate Enhances Monitoring, Alerting

Version 7 of the company's flagship data synchronization platform improves monitoring of data synchronization projects in real-time.

GoldenGate Inc. Monday announced version 7 of its flagship data synchronization platform with improvements centering around monitoring of data synchronization projects in real-time.

The product, GoldenGate 7, is used for applications such as business continuity, disaster recovery, data center consolidation and integration, system migration, application integration and active data warehousing, officials of the Sausalito, Calif.-based company said.

The chief new feature of this release is the Activity Console, 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 also improving the openness of the platform with this release 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., Microsoft Corp. SQL Server, IBM Corp. DB2 and Informix, Teradata, TimesTen, Enscribe, IMS/VSAM and Ingres.

This version also features enhanced support for detecting and resolving conflicting information within databases to ensure data accuracy and faster data loading.

GoldenGate last week also announced its 2,000th customer. The company, founded in 1995, claims profitability for the past seven years and more than $10 million in revenues in its most recent quarter.

The company in particular targets the banking, financial services, healthcare, telecommunications, government and aerospace verticals.

GoldenGate 7 is available now with pricing starting at around $50,000.
