  • Replicates heterogeneously between MySQL and Oracle as well as from Oracle to Oracle itself.
  • Loads data in real-time from Oracle and MySQL to high-performance data warehouses like Vertica and InfiniDB.
  • Publishes data in real-time from Oracle and MySQL to NoSQL implementations, such as MongoDB.
  • Permits flexible filtering and inspection of transactions during replication.
