Benefits

Replicate and synchronize data with minimal latency

Synchronize data across heterogeneous databases, storage systems, and applications reliably, with low latency, while minimizing impact on source performance.

Scale up or down with a serverless architecture

Get up and running fast with a serverless and easy-to-use service that seamlessly scales up or down, and has no infrastructure to manage.

Unmatched flexibility with Google Cloud services

Connect and integrate data across your organization with the best of Google Cloud services like BigQuery, Cloud Spanner, Dataflow, and Data Fusion.

Key features

Datastream's differentiated approach

Streaming data from Oracle and MySQL

Datastream reads and delivers every change—insert, update, and delete—from your Oracle and MySQL databases to load data into BigQuery, Cloud SQL, Cloud Storage, and Cloud Spanner. Agentless and Google-native, it reliably streams every event as it happens. 

Normalized data types across sources

Datastream normalizes every event’s data type from the source database’s type into a unified Datastream type. This lossless data type normalization across sources means easier downstream processing in a source-agnostic way, regardless of where the data originated.

Schema drift resolution

As source schemas change, Datastream allows for fast and seamless schema drift resolution. Datastream rotates files, creating a new file in the destination bucket, on every schema change. Original source data types are just an API-call away with the up-to-date, versioned Schema Registry.

Secure by design

Datastream supports multiple secure, private connectivity methods to protect data in transit. In addition, data is encrypted in transit and at rest so you can rest easy knowing your data is protected as it streams.

Customers

Learn from customers replicating data using Datastream

“As we’re modernizing our applications, we're replicating data reliably out of Oracle and into Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL with Datastream which has resulted in minimal downtime to our application.”

Tutorial
How to replicate data from an Oracle database into BigQuery

Watch this video to learn how to replicate data in real time from Oracle into BigQuery using Data Fusion’s replication accelerator that's integrated with Datastream.

Use cases

Continuous change data capture: replicate every event as it happens

Use case
Real time, anytime change streams

Change data capture integrates data by reading change events (inserts, updates, and deletes) from source databases and writing them to a data destination, so action can be taken. Datastream supports change streams from Oracle and MySQL databases into BigQuery, Cloud SQL, Cloud Storage, and Cloud Spanner, enabling real-time analytics, database replication, and other use cases. Additional sources and destinations are coming in the future.
