Querying a SQL Server database from Oracle

Is there something analogous to a linked server (in SQL) in Oracle? Can I query a SQL Server database from Oracle?

You can do this by either:
  1. Using ODBC connection, or
  2. Using Oracle's Transparent Gateways product

See this information on Transparent Gateways.
