OLTP applications designed for Oracle Sharding can elastically scale (data, transactions and users) to any level, on any platform, simply by deploying new shards on additional stand-alone servers. The failure or downtime of one individual shard due to unplanned outage or planned maintenance event only impacts the users of that shard temporarily while the performance and availability of other shards are not affected at all. This viewlet demonstrates the linear scalability and extreme data availability benefits of Oracle Sharding. Please refer to the Demo Description for more details on this demonstration.
It is critical to keep the downtime to the minimum under any workload and perform a fast failover to the standby in the event of primary database outage. This demo showcases how fast a Data Guard Fast-Start Failover across Availability Domains in Oracle Bare Metal Cloud with heavy OLTP and query workloads across Primary & Standby databases. With Data Guard Fast-Start Failover and MAA best practices combined with Oracle Bare Metal Cloud infrastructure, automatic database failovers within 30 seconds and with zero data loss can be achieved. Please refer to the Demo Description for the workload characteristics for this demonstration.
It is critical to keep the downtime to the minimum in the event of a planned maintenance using Data Guard Switchover operation (e.g. applying software changes on the standby, upgrading to a new patchset or major database release etc.). This demo highlights the minimal downtime achieved while doing a Data Guard switchover operation in Oracle Bare Metal Cloud. Please refer to the Demo Description for more details on this demonstration.
