BMC Software, Inc., a leader in enterprise management, and GoldenGate Software, a leader in global data synchronization, announced a sales, marketing and technology alliance. The alliance enables BMC Software to extend its SmartDBA data management portfolio with the addition of GoldenGate’s data synchronization capabilities, creating a complete data management and real- time data synchronization solution for heterogeneous environments.

IT organizations benefit from the alliance by being able to add vital data synchronization to what is already the broadest range of data management technology available from a single vendor. The combined solution makes it possible for BMC Software to assure the performance, availability and recoverability of data while enabling customers to conduct real-time data replication, synchronization and migration for true data availability across mixed environments.

By adding GoldenGate’s replication, synchronization and migration capabilities to its SmartDBA data management portfolio, BMC Software is providing customers with a complete end-to-end data management and synchronization solution to address some of IT’s toughest challenges. For example, BMC Software and GoldenGate can assure optimum performance and continuity by creating a synchronized business environment that combines real- time data coordination with database infrastructure monitoring and management solutions.

Customers using the SmartDBA/GoldenGate solution can quickly and easily move and synchronize large volumes of data with zero downtime. Additional customer benefits include:

  • Simplifies complex environments while allowing for flexibility and freedom of choice for IT components (e.g., storage, software, servers); Increases DBA productivity with tools to optimize database performance and availability across diverse environments;
  • Lowers TCO by reducing the need for expensive databases, hardware and software;
  • Assures business continuity by enabling fault tolerance and fast recovery;
  • Maximizes data availability through proactive management, effective workload balancing and fast, high volume data movement.

The alliance moves BMC Software another step forward in its initiative to deliver deeper levels of interoperability and integration in heterogeneous environments. GoldenGate’s data synchronization software platform compliments this strategy by providing true heterogeneous management. The SmartDBA/GoldenGate solution offers diversity and flexibility to handle monitoring, management, synchronization and migration of multiple database and operating system platforms without the expense of adding redundant hardware and software.
