AskTOM Office Hours: Oracle GDS Session 1 (April 4th, 2018)

Exploring Oracle Global Data Services (GDS):
AskTOM Office Hours offers free, open Q&A sessions with Oracle Database experts. Here is the recording of the GDS session that I conducted on April 4th, 2018.
Oracle GoldenGate and Oracle Active Data Guard allow for distribution of application workloads across replicated databases, but when applications are spread across geodistributed databases, it is a challenge to efficiently use all the databases for best performance and availability. In this AskTom Office hours session, hear from Oracle Product Development experts about how the Global Data Services feature of Oracle Database provides region-based workload routing, load balancing, and service failover across replicas while enabling a seamless distributed private data cloud for your IT. In this session, you will learn how to load-balance read/write workloads in active/active Oracle GoldenGate and to load-balance read-only workloads across Oracle Active Data Guard reader farms, among numerous other use cases.
Highlights: At 2:03, GDS is introduced. At 4:25, GDS architecture is discussed. At 8:15, Deployment steps are covered. For use cases, please go to 15:58.
