Can the trial be extended longer than 10 days?

Contact support to extend your trial from 10 days to 20 days.

Is it necessary to install the Control Center on a separate machine?

No, however this is recommended as having the Control Center on a separate machine increases the resilience of your Disaster Recovery architecture.  

Do we need to reinstall the software when we buy the software?

No reinstallation is required when you purchase the software, you only need to input the new license key. 

Can we have primary database as on-premise and the standby in the cloud?

Yes, Standby supports on-premise, hybrid and full cloud architectures.  Below user guide link talks about this in detail.

User guide: example cloud configurations

Can logs still be applied when the standby database is in Read Only/Standby mode?

When the standby database is in READ ONLY/STANDBY mode, logs can be transferred from primary to standby, but the logs can’t to be applied till the standby database is in RECOVERY/RESTORING mode.

Can we have Oracle Enterprise Edition as primary and Standard Edition for DR and does Standby work with this configuration?

Yes, however we do not recommend this as the primary and standby systems would in this case not be identical, which would create additional disaster recovery risk. 

Is ARCHSOURCE and ARCHDEST the same as Oracle Archive Log destination?

No, it should never be the same. ARCHSOURCE and ARCHDEST variables should contain the same directory on primary and standby server. On the standby server, this directory is used to receive archive logs from the primary. On the primary server, this directory is not used, but when the primary server switches role and becomes the standby, then this directory will be used to receive archive logs from the primary database.

What are the versions of SQL Server support on StandbyMP?

StandbyMP supports MS SQL Server 2012 onwards.

Is there a limit to number of SQLServer databases when purchasing licenses?

There is no limit. The licenses are based on SQL Server instances. The minimum number of licenses required is two (one for primary and one for Standby).
