Ask any DBA what is their dream infrastructure and I promise you that they will narrate immediately a story which will be centered around no downtime and amazing performance. However, when you ask them if they know what exactly will make them happy as well as run their business most efficient, why are they not going for it? The usual answer is budget. If we ask DBA to presume there is an infinite budget the next answer is Good Tool. In this blog post, we will discuss how we can replicate data from Oracle to Kafka and efficiently and quickly.
My primary job is to help various organizations design scalable architecture which can provide robust performance all the time. I love my job very much when I have complete freedom to make the decisions to build elaborate infrastructure. However, not every time I am allowed to do what I want to do because every CEO and CTO are concerned about one thing – “Budget and ROI (Return of investment).”
If you ask any DBA in the world about their wildest dream, they will always say that want to manage a huge database platform which is scalable whenever it needs to and available always. If you are a DBA, you will agree with the statement. Every DBA who is going home after a day-long work only dreams that a) he does not have to wake up mid-night and b) the first task next day is not to worry about the capacity of the server. Let us learn about Scalability and Availability Challenges and Shareplex Solutions.
The scariest word for any DBA is – Database Downtime. Every DBA who is going off duty for the day or going away on vacation for a month is always worried about Database Downtime. I totally sympathize with everyone who is constantly worried about their database’s downtime. In the real world, we all know when our database does down, it means that our business is stopped. There is no other analogy we can give.
