I try to stick close to core Oracle technologies and steer clear of product endorsements, but over the years I’ve bumped into the ladies and gents from Dbvisit a number of times and they have been consistently cool and consistently on the money with their products. At Oracle OpenWorld 2012 I bumped into Arjen Visser who told me about their new product called Dbvisit Reporting, so I asked him to keep nagging me until I tried it out. When we met at UKOUG 2012 I still hadn’t tried it, but he had been too polite to bug me about it. This weekend it made it to the top of my list.
Dbvisit Reporting is essentially a cut-down version of Dbvisit Replicate, targeted specifically at creating real-time offload reporting databases. I’ve been having a play with it today, which resulted in this.
You can see my previous articles on their other products here.

- Dbvisit Standby Installation on Oracle Linux 5 and 6
Like all their products, Dbvisit Reporting delivers exactly what is says it will. The install is quick, so you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to get it working.
Keep up the good work ladies and gents!
PS. You can now test-drive Dbvisit Standby in the Cloud.
