GoldenGate Software Unveils GoldenGate 9.0

GoldenGate Software has announced the release of GoldenGate 9.0, extending the platform's heterogeneous database capabilities by expanding support for Microsoft SQL Server and IBM DB2 z/OS. GoldenGate 9.0 is in response to the large number of enterprise customers who run mission-critical applications on DB2 z/OS and who require continuous application availability in addition to the growing number of organizations who have deployed applications on SQL Server with a predominance for business intelligence, analytics and reporting. Keeping applications continuously available and leveraging data transactions across the enterprise, in real time, is increasingly important to improving the efficiency of business operations.

The number of organizations using the Microsoft SQL Server platform for critical data initiatives such as business intelligence and data warehousing is on the rise. According to a recent survey for the Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS), a global community of users, SQL Server is a dominant database platform in markets such as financial services, technology and government, with 70% of survey respondents already using the new SQL Server 2005. The survey also revealed that 41% of enterprises have over 60 instances of the database running in their environment and 28% of survey respondents can tolerate "less than one to four hours" of downtime per year.

With GoldenGate for SQL Server, organizations can move data from source to target, in real time, with no requirement for a middle tier. With minimal impact to the source system, GoldenGate reads the SQL Server database log, encrypts the committed transactions and moves them across the network to one or many target systems. Additionally, because most environments need continuous uptime, GoldenGate moves the data bi-directionally while maintaining transaction integrity and, in the event of a primary system outage, users are immediately pointed to the second fully synchronized system and business continues as usual.

New Product Features Include:
- Expanded Database Support - Expanded heterogeneity now includes support for Microsoft SQL Server and DB2 z/OS
- Enhanced Capabilities for Critical Data Initiatives - GoldenGate 9.0 includes enhanced capabilities for high availability, disaster tolerance and real-time data integration for real-time data warehousing and reporting.

GoldenGate Software's TDM solutions enable customers to effectively maximize the performance, accessibility, and availability of the transactional data that drives mission-critical business processes. With over 300 customers in 35 countries, GoldenGate supports the world's most popular databases including SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase, DB2 z/OS, DB2 UDB, HP NonStop, Enscribe, Ingres and MySQL.
