Informatica Fast Clone rapidly and efficiently copies / clones Oracle data into a host of other databases, data warehouses, analytical appliances, and Big Data stores such as Hadoop.
Informatica Fast Clone provides a fast and efficient way for unloading and extracting Oracle data into a universally portable format for movement across the enterprise or for reorganization in place. It allows high speed cloning of application data housed in Oracle tables of any size – even terabytes of data – into a variety of target systems including portable flat text files, named pipes, or directly to a destination database system or data warehouse appliance, including Oracle Exadata – all without compromising the performance of the production database systems. Its rapid unload – faster than Oracle’s own Oracle Direct Path Export – combined with its highly parallelized distribution of data across different versions, platforms, and targets increases your organization’s productivity by providing the data when and wherever needed in as rapid a manner as possible, while preserving the performance and productivity of the production Oracle systems from which the data is being drawn.
Informatica Fast Clone addresses a broad range of use cases, from traditional unload/cloning applications such as offloading for archival purposes to new use cases such as allowing reorganization of your Oracle data in place. One of the most compelling solutions Fast Clone provides is its ability to rapidly publish application data into data warehouses and modern DW/analytical appliances to enable analytics and reporting without impact on the production system. Many Informatica customers use Informatica Fast Clone to transfer data from production Oracle systems into IBM Netezza, allowing fast migration with very low overhead on Oracle.
