How it works

A simple implementation consists of one primary database and one standby database.  

  • Creation: One or more standby databases are efficiently created.  
  • Synchronization: StandbyMP synchronizes the databases by compressing, sending, and applying logs to the standby(s). Frequency of log transmission can be set to meet your RPO objectives.
  • Monitoring: Real-time monitoring identifies exceptions and sends alert notifications.  
  • Failover: Failover can be initiated automatically or with a single click. Database failover completes within a few minutes.
