Oracle GoldenGate Classic is Deprecated

Here at RheoData we have been keeping an eye on where Oracle is planning on taking Oracle GoldenGate and their plans for “Classic” vs. “Microservices” architectures.  With the release of Oracle GoldenGate Services (GGS) on OCI, Oracle has made the announcement through their documentation for Oracle GoldenGate that the “Classic” architecture is now DEPRECATED.  What does this mean for you?

When Oracle deprecates a product or feature it typically takes Oracle about 2 years to fully remove the product or feature from support.  They due this for maintenance and development purposes. 

With so many customers on “Oracle GoldenGate (Classic)”, Oracle will support Oracle GoldenGate 19c (Classic) until 2025 since Oracle GoldenGate 19c is considered a long-term release.  During this window of time, if customers will need to start evaluating and looking at “Oracle GoldenGate (Microservices)”.  If any customer purchases Oracle GoldenGate licenses they will need to start fresh on “Oracle GoldenGate (Microservices)”.
