Oracle database & Spectral Core

Oracle is the world’s most popular database in enterprise market. It’s designed for true distributed computing and handles the most complex and demanding needs.

We support Oracle directly in our products! You don't need separate drivers and can immediately connect to your database (with or even without OCI).

Original Oracle database was created by Software Development Laboratories consultancy in 1977. Bob Miner was the lead engineer in the early days, programming the majority of Oracle version 3 by himself. Oracle was the first database to take advantage of relational algebra and theory of relational databases described by IBM’s Edgar F. Codd. As IBM was slow to realize Codd idea’s potential, small SDL was able to come to market with its relational SQL database product before IBM. SDL changed name to Oracle Systems Corporation in 1982, then in 1995 it became Oracle Corporation.

Oracle introduced a lot of firsts in the database world. In 1985 Oracle 5 worked in now-standard client/server mode. In 1988 PL/SQL was introduced, Oracle’s extension to standard SQL query language. Starting with Oracle 8i, Oracle supports web-scale and Internet technology. Today Oracle provides large database clusters, in-memory databases, data warehousing, business intelligence, distributed key/value NoSQL database and cloud services. Oracle acquired Sun Corporation and with it MySQL database, much to the chagrin of MySQL author who in turn left MySQL AB corporation and spun off MariaDB project, compatible with MySQL, but fully open-source.

Main Oracle competitor is Microsoft SQL Server.

Export your Oracle database

It may make sense to migrate your data away from Oracle. You may want to do it permanently or just need to share your tables with a collague in a different format.

We will copy all your tables with their data and apply indexing and relationships exactly as they are in your current Oracle database. In a nutshell, you get exactly the same database in another database engine. Each time you run the migration, we will copy all the tables again. Of course, we have a built-in scheduler, so you can run this overnight and have a fresh database copy in the morning.

Import data into your Oracle database

Have a need to import data from various sources into your Oracle database? Luckily we support many popular database formats to make this easy for you. Instead of messing with exporting from source, then working your way to somehow import data into Oracle, use our tool to copy all desired tables directly - quickly and easily.

Replicate your Oracle database

If you have already created your target database (by yourself or using our Full Convert product), you can synchronize data in your target database with your original Oracle database. We never pollute your databases with additional tables or triggers for replications. We never even write to your source database.

Replication allows you to update your target database very often, as we always write just a minimum of changes needed to bring databases in sync. For example, if you added three records to a single table in your Oracle database, our replication product will write those three records to target database and nothing else. If you deleted some records, changed some others and inserted some, again – our product will pick that up and replay those changes in the target databases without touching existing data that should stay there. Our products are highly optimized for real-world workloads, so data that's inserted into different areas of table are combined and written using high-speed algorithms, as available in a specific target database.

You can run database replication often, as your target database is never empty while replication runs. You will simply see that your changes are applied on each run.
