    GoldenGate on database migrations

    Carbonera
      Hi all,

      I work with consulting and sometimes I have doubts in using GoldenGate on database migrations.

      There are documents about database migrations with GoldenGate, when to use GoldenGate and when not, size limitations, best practices and step-by-step?

      Any help would be appreciated.

      Thanks.

          Your question:

          The answer is yes, there are documents about database migrations with GoldenGate, when to use GoldenGate and when not, size limitations, best practices and step-by-step.

          Books, white papers, blogs, and Oracle documentation, to name a few sources.

          Without knowing your migration requirements (zero downtime, datatypes involved, etc.), it's pretty hard to provide anything specific. Plus, is GoldenGate already licensed? Is it being used only for a migration?
