[How to] Create a cascading standby database to improve reporting and test/dev with Standby's Snapshots


How to technical white paper

Using a shared standby server to create a cascading standby database as a source for reporting or test/dev snapshot creation.

 

In this white paper we show you how to easily create a second standby database on the same server as the existing standby and make it a source for snapshots. 

For an introduction to Standby's Snapshot feature read the Snapshot feature page. Snapshots allow you to extend the value of your standby environment by enabling the creation of temporary snapshots (singular or regularly updated) of your standby database for development and test environments, application upgrade testing, DR testing, and reporting.
