Replicate from Oracle to Oracle, Oracle to MySQL, and Oracle to analytics

Oracle is the most powerful DBMS in the world. However, Oracle's expensive and complex replication makes it difficult to build highly available applications or move data in real-time to data warehouses and popular databases like MySQL.
In this webinar-on-demand you will learn how Continuent Tungsten solves problems with Oracle replication at a fraction of the cost of other solutions and with less management overhead too -- think "Oracle GoldenGate without the price tag!" We will show you how to replicate data in real-time from Oracle to Oracle, from Oracle to MySQL, and loading a data warehouse.
