Any organization evaluating a database solution for enterprise data must also evaluate the High Availability (HA) capabilities of the database. Data is one of the most critical business assets of an organization. If this data is not available and/or not protected, companies may stand to lose millions of dollars in business downtime as well as negative publicity. Building a highly available data infrastructure is critical to the success of all organizations in today's fast moving economy.
Oracle Database is uniquely positioned in the industry by offering the most comprehensive set of HA capabilities that are available with a single product. Capabilities such as Real Application Clusters (RAC), Data Guard, Automatic Storage Management (ASM), Flashback, Recovery Manager (RMAN), Online Reorganization, Edition-based Redefinition, etc. are available as built-in features of the Oracle Database. Along with complementary products such as Oracle Secure Backup and Oracle GoldenGate, these capabilities work together in an integrated manner to offer the best solution for the Oracle Database to reduce or eliminate both planned and unplanned downtime.
Besides this integrated set of HA solutions, Oracle also offers the Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA), which is Oracle's HA best practices blueprint involving its entire technology stack from applications to storage. Following the MAA guidelines, customers can significantly reduce the cost and complexity of their HA deployments, while building an HA architecture that is optimized for their Oracle environment.
Following are the key capabilities that comprise Oracle Database's HA solution set.
