Oracle Data Sync vs. Oracle Remote Data Connector - Vast Edge

Oracle Data Integration Overview

In today’s data-driven world, ensuring that clean and timely data is available is a critical first step for effective data mining and analysis. Oracle provides robust data integration tools for free to facilitate the seamless transfer and synchronization of your data with the Oracle Cloud Analytics platform. The two primary integration methods offered are Oracle Data Sync and Oracle Remote Data Connector (RDC). Below, we’ll explore each method to help you understand their functionalities and determine which best suits your needs.

Oracle Data Sync

  • Purpose: Oracle Data Sync is designed to efficiently move and synchronize your data to the cloud.

Key Features

  • Data Transfer: It enables the bulk transfer of data from on-premises databases to Oracle Cloud.

  • Scheduling: Supports scheduling for automated, periodic data synchronization.

  • Transformations: Allows data transformations during the sync process to ensure that the data conforms to the desired format.

  • Incremental Updates: Capable of performing incremental data updates to minimize the volume of data transfer and reduce latency.

  • Compatibility: Works with a variety of data sources including Oracle databases, third-party databases, and flat files.

Use Case: Ideal for scenarios where data needs to be regularly updated and synchronized from on-premises systems to the cloud, such as in data warehousing, business intelligence, and analytics applications.

Oracle Remote Data Connector (RDC)

  • Purpose: Oracle RDC is designed to enable remote connectivity to your data without the need for data migration.

Key Features

  • Real-Time Access: Provides real-time access to on-premises data without moving it to the cloud.

  • Data Virtualization: Allows users to create virtualized views of their on-premises data in the Oracle Cloud.

  • Security: Ensures secure access to data through robust encryption and authentication mechanisms.

  • Low Latency: Minimizes latency in data access since the data is not physically moved.

  • Ease of Integration: Simple integration with existing on-premises databases and applications.

Use Case: Best suited for scenarios where real-time data access is crucial, and where data migration is not feasible or desirable, such as in transactional systems, real-time reporting, and hybrid cloud architectures.


Choosing between Oracle Data Sync and Oracle Remote Data Connector depends on your specific business requirements and data strategy. If your goal is to maintain an up-to-date cloud data warehouse for comprehensive analytics, Oracle Data Sync is the right choice. On the other hand, if you need real-time access to on-premises data without the overhead of data migration, Oracle Remote Data Connector is the optimal solution.
