Why the cloud?

Easy management
- infrastructure maintenance becomes the cloud server providers responsibility.

Fast implementation - cloud environments can be set up and configured in minutes. 

Resilient - creating geographic distance between cloud servers creates resilience to natural disasters and other localized events.

Scalable - flexible infrastructure expands as your business grows and changes.

Reduce CAPEX - reduce hardware and infrastructure costs.

Why Standby is perfect for cloud-based DR

StandbyTM delivers Gold Standard Disaster Recovery for Oracle Standard Edition.  Like Oracle Data Guard, our StandbyTM physical replication technology prioritizes data integrity, switchover speed, and solution resilience. 

Continually verified

The integrity of the standby database is continually verified, enabling successful failover at any time. 


StandbyTM is fully certified for Oracle databases running on Amazon's EC2, Oracle Cloud and Microsoft Azure.

Network resilient

The log shipping architecture and automated network issue resolution make StandbyTM resilient to common cloud network issues. 

Easy to configure

StandbyTM can be configured with no special cloud knowledge.  

Fast to implement

Configure StandbyTM in minutes using the intuitive GUI with advanced features like "one-click" standby creation (CLI also available).

Low bandwidth

StandbyTM uses up to 70% less infrastructure bandwidth given effective data compression and the transfer of database changes only. 

DR in The Cloud (new brand)

What configurations can I use?

Choose to have your entire environment within the cloud (cloud to cloud) or implement a hybrid cloud configuration (on-premise primary and a cloud-based standby) environment.

Encrypted Changes (minimal Border)

Standby was particularly easy to implement, monitor and test.
Overall, we've found Standby for Oracle SE on Oracle Cloud to be an extremely cost-effective solution.

DR in the Cloud White Paper



What cloud platforms does Standby support?

Standby supports nearly any private or public cloud services that are support.  Examples include: Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2); Oracle Cloud; and Microsoft Azure Cloud (Azure).

Do I need DR if I have availability Zones?

Availability zones are for the infrastructure but not for the database.  If there is a database failure with no hardware failure, the failure will not be detected or resolved by availability zones.  In this situation, a standby database enables you to quickly and easily failover with minimal dataloss and affect to your business operations. 

What configurations does Standby support?

Standby's flexibility allows it to run on-premise to on-premise, on-premise to cloud; and cloud-to-cloud.  It's even possible to quickly adjust this configuration or cloud provider as your business evolves.
