Alooma can replicate tables from your Oracle database, either hosted by you or in Amazon, to your target data warehouse in near real-time.
This enables you to, for example, enrich your analytics data coming from your mobile devices and with user attributes stored in your Oracle database.
Alooma provides two supported replication options for Oracle databases: full dump/load and incremental dump/load. Learn more about choosing the right replication method for your data.
Integrating your Oracle database with Alooma is easy in just a few steps:
- How do you want to connect to Alooma? If it's via an SSH server, check out how to connect via SSH. Otherwise, you'll need to whitelist access to Alooma's IP addresses.
- Is your Oracle database hosted in Amazon? Check out how to whitelist IPs in Amazon.
- Add and name your Oracle input from the Plumbing screen and enter the following details:
- Hostname or IP address of the Oracle server (default port is 1521)
- User name and Password
- Database name
- Schema name (optional)
- If your Oracle server is behind an SSH server you can connect to Oracle via SSH.
- Choose the replication method you'd like to use for Oracle database replication
For full dump/load replication, provide:
- A space- or comma-separated list of the names of the tables you want to replicate.
- The frequency at which you'd like to replicate your tables. The more frequent, the more fresh your data will be, but the more load it puts on your Oracle database.
- A table/update indicator column pairs for each table you want to replicate.
Keep the mapping mode to the default of OneClick if you'd like Alooma to automatically map all Oracle tables exactly to your target data warehouse. Otherwise, they'll have to be mapped manually from the Mapper screen.
That's it! You're done integrating Oracle and Alooma.
