Replicating Oracle data to Amazon Redshift

Striim provides a template for creating applications that read from Oracle and write to Redshift. See Creating a new application using a template for details.

RedshiftWriter can continuously replicate one or many Oracle tables to an Amazon Redshift store. First, create a table in Redshift corresponding to each Oracle table to be replicated. Then load the existing data using DatabaseReader, for example:

CREATE SOURCE OracleSource USING DatabaseReader (
  Username:'Striim',
  Password:'****',
  ConnectionURL:'jdbc:oracle:thin:@192.168.123.14:1521/XE',
  Tables:'TPCH.H_CUSTOMER;TPCH.H_PART;TPCH.H_SUPPLIER'
)
OUTPUT TO DataStream;

CREATE TARGET TPCHInitialLoad USING RedshiftWriter (
  ConnectionURL: 'jdbc:redshift://mys3bucket.c1ffd5l3urjx.us-west-2.redshift.amazonaws.com:5439/dev',
  Username:'mys3user',
  Password:'******',
  bucketname:'mys3bucket',
/* for striimuser */
  accesskeyid:'********************',
  secretaccesskey:'****************************************',
  Tables:'TPCH.H_CUSTOMER,customer;TPCH.H_PART,part;TPCH.H_SUPPLIER,supplier'
)
INPUT FROM DataStream LCRStream; 

Theœ Tables property maps each specified Oracle table to a Redshift table, for example, TPCH.H_CUSTOMER to customer.

Once the initial load is complete, the following application will read new data using LogMiner and continuously replicate it to Redshift:

CREATE SOURCE oracSource USING OracleReader (
  Username:'miner',
  Password:'miner',
  ConnectionURL:'192.168.123.26:1521:XE',
  Tables:'TPCH.H_CUSTOMER;TPCH.H_PART;TPCH.H_SUPPLIER'
)
Output To LCRStream;

CREATE TARGET TPCHIntegrator USING RedshiftWriter (
  ConnectionURL: 'jdbc:redshift://mys3bucket.c1ffd5l3urjx.us-west-2.redshift.amazonaws.com:5439/dev',
  Username:'mys3user',
  Password:'******',
  bucketname:'mys3bucket',
/* for striimuser */
  accesskeyid:'********************',
  secretaccesskey:'****************************************',
  Tables:'TPCH.H_CUSTOMER,customer;TPCH.H_PART,part;TPCH.H_SUPPLIER,supplier',
  Mode:'IncrementalLoad' )
INPUT FROM LCRStream; 

Note that Redshift does not enforce unique primary key constraints. Use OracleReader's StartSCN or StartTimestamp property to ensure that you do not have duplicate or missing events in Redshift.
