Hello Team,

I wanted to know if it is possible to run the same OLTP application on two different sites with databases on both sites being synced using the Golden Gate? Generally, do we need another dataguard enviornment(s) to cater as DR solution or above configuration suffice as the DR solution?

What points need to be considered/taken care of for such configurations?

Regards,

Bi-directional replication is supported but definitely a non-trivial configuration and generally the application might need to be aware of what is going on "behind the scenes"

Some good information on that here

https://docs.oracle.com/en/middleware/goldengate/core/21.3/coredoc/administer-configuring-bi-directional-replication.html

I would be hesitant in adopting *solely* that as a DR solution because (unlike DataGuard) a bi-directional setup means that is consistently some (small) level of divergence between the systems.
