Failover of PeopleSoft Application with Data Guard Fast-Start Failover
This demonstrates integrated automatic failover of a PeopleSoft Application while the underlying database also undergoes a failover, through an automatic Data Guard Fast-Start Failover. Click on the demo link to download the demo and run on your desktop, use the control at the bottom of the demo screen to initiate demo.

  demo  Oracle Beehive 1.5 - Automatic Failover of Oracle Beehive to a Data Guard 11g Standby Database

This demonstrates Oracle Beehive 1.5 running on Exadata Database Machine under a 3,000 user load. The demonstration uses a two-node Oracle RAC database with two Oracle Beehive application servers front-ended by an F5 Big-IP Local Traffic Manager. There is also a local two-node Oracle Data Guard physical standby database that provides both data protection and an additional level of high availability (HA). The HA standby database is synchronized with the primary using Data Guard real-time apply. During the demonstration we crash the primary and failover to the standby database. End-users see a pause in functionality while Beehive application servers automatically disconnect from the crashed primary and reconnect to the new primary database via Fast Application Notification (FAN) and Fast Connection Failover (FCF). The failover process takes 30 seconds, then users are able to continue work without the need to reconnect to Beehive. Following failover, the original primary is automatically reinstated as a standby database, and automatically resynchronized with the new primary database. The demo automatically runs in your browser when you click on the demo link - use the control's at the bottom of the demo screen if you prefer to manually advance the demo. Running time is 5 minutes and 28 seconds.

  demo Oracle Beehive 1.5 - Oracle RAC Instance Failover

This demonstrates Oracle Beehive 1.5 running on Exadata Database Machine under a 3,000 user load. The demonstration uses a two-node Oracle RAC database with two Oracle Beehive application servers front-ended by an F5 Big-IP Local Traffic Manager. The database instance on the first Oracle RAC node is aborted - and the demonstration shows how Oracle Beehive clients (email, calendar, conferencing and instant messaging) continue to operate through the failure using the surviving instance on the second Oracle RAC node. Oracle Beehive Services that were connected to the failed instance, are automatically routed and reconnected to the surviving instance using Fast Application Notification and Fast Connection Failover features that are integrated into Oracle Beehive. Oracle RAC node or instance failure is transparent to the Oracle Beehive users. The demo automatically runs in your browser when you click on the demo link - use the control's at the bottom of the demo screen if you prefer to manually advance the demo. Running time is 6 minutes and 27 seconds.

  demo E-Business Suite Site Failure - Automatic Application and Database Failover

This demonstrates a completely automated site failover for an MAA configuration of E-Business Suite Release 12 running under load.  Data Guard Fast-Start Failover automates database failover. A role change trigger fires at failover time - and executes an E-Business Suite failover script that removes the topology, runs AutoConfig on the database and application tiers, and restarts the application.  The network is switched via a DNS push, users are routed to the new production site and login.  The demo automatically runs in your browser when you click on the demo link - use the control's at the bottom of the demo screen if you prefer to manually advance the demo .

Siebel 8.1 RAC Instance Failover
This demonstrates Siebel 8.0 This demonstrates Siebel 8.1 running under load on a four-node Oracle 11g Release 2 RAC cluster.  The Oracle instance on the first node is aborted - and the demonstration shows the surviving instances perform recovery, Siebel Servers reconnect automatically and are routed to the surviving instance, Oracle Transparent Application Failover reconstructs the database sessions and users continue processing. RAC node failure is transparent to the Siebel user. The demo automatically runs in your browser when you click on the demo link - use the control's at the bottom of the demo screen if you prefer to manually advance the demo.

Siebel 8.1 Local Data Guard Failover
This demonstrates Siebel 8.1 running under load on an Oracle 11g Release 2 primary database with local standby .  The primary database is aborted - and the demonstration shows the failover to the standby, Siebel Servers reconnect automatically and are routed to the surviving database, Oracle Transparent Application Failover reconstructs the database sessions and users continue processing. The primary node failure is transparent to the Siebel user. The demo automatically runs in your browser when you click on the demo link - use the control's at the bottom of the demo screen if you prefer to manually advance the demo.

Siebel 8.0 RAC Instance Failover
This demonstrates Siebel 8.0 running under load on a two-node Oracle RAC cluster.  The Oracle instance on the first node is aborted - and the demonstration shows the surviving instance perform recovery, Siebel Servers reconnect automatically are are routed to the surviving instance, Oracle Transparent Application Failover reconstructs the database sessions and users continue processing. RAC node failure is transparent to the Siebel user.

Siebel 8.0 Site Failover - Automatic Application and Database Failover
Similar to the E-Business Suite Site Failure demonstration above, this demo simulates site failure when both primary RAC instances are powered down.  Data Guard Automatic Failover the transition of the standby database at the remote site to the production role.  The role change to production fires a trigger that executes the Siebel failover script. Sieble Gateway, Siebel Servers and Web Servers are started and client connections are switched to the standby site through DNS push.

Siebel 8.0 - Transparent Database Upgrade
The Siebel database is upgraded to a new Oracle release using Data Guard SQL Apply rolling database upgrades.  First a SQL Apply standby database is upgraded to the new release.  Then Oracle Transparent Application Failover (TAF) is used during the switchover to the upgraded database, eliminating the need to restart Siebel.  Siebel users only see a slight pause in processing, then resume work on the new production database operating at the new Oracle release.
