How it works

A simple implementation consists of one primary database and one standby database.  The solution is built on the proven Oracle redo/archive logging mechanism and physical replication technology. 

  • CREATION:  A highly automated process efficiently creates one or more standby databases.
  • SYNCHRONIZATION:  Standby synchronizes the databases by compressing, sending, and applying the oracle archive logs to the standby(s).  Frequency of log transmission and other settings is configurable, providing control over when data is extracted and applied. 
  • MONITORING:  Real-time monitoring identifies exceptions and sends alert notifications.  
  • FAILOVER:  Failover can be initiated automatically or with a single command.  Database failover completes within a few minutes.
