Disaster Recovery (DR) is the business continuity solution to recover and protect a business infrastructure in case of natural disasters or human errors. Business continuity involves much more than recovering an IT infrastructure from a disaster. It also involves key aspects like Recovery PointObjective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO).Today’s business continuity solutions must keep organizations up and running despite unplanned interruptions.
A comprehensive business continuity solution must address redundancy, data protection and recoverability of data according to the defined RPOs.
With Dell storage replication solutions, organizations can now deploy a reliable disaster recovery and business continuity solution and at the same time reduce overall operatingcosts and complexity.
This whitepaper describes how to leverage Dell storage replication solutions to build a comprehensive disaster recovery plan for an Oracle Database involving both synchronous and asynchronous options. This enables you to choose the best replication option depending on the infrastructure and feasibility.
The whitepaper also discusses the setting up of different replication methods between storage arrays for all the Dell storages and performing different disaster recovery test cases while validating the integrity of the Oracle Database.
The storage replication solutions discussed in this paper covers Dell Compellent, EqualLogic, and PowerVault storage systems.
