Exitas Technical Lunch: Disaster Recovery

Share this article

27th of February 2019

Oracle is one of the best database management systems out there. Yet you need a decent plan should things go south. That’s what we call a disaster recovery (DR) plan.

Maybe you already have a DR plan? But are you sure there isn’t room for improvement? Because even small mistakes can have a huge impact on your environment.

Our speakers will demonstrate the latest and greatest options, different tools, third-party software and many more. Have a look at the program.


Have a closer look at what will be on the menu:

Dbvisit Standby versus Oracle Dataguard

Standby is Dbvisits replication tool to meet the disaster recovery needs of DB Standard Edition users, while Dataguard is Oracle’s famous tool for DB Enterprise users. When do you need which solution? Choosing a method of database replication is not a matter of taste or religion. Seek the 7 differences between Dbvisit Standby and Oracle Dataguard.

Migrating your database to the cloud with near zero downtime

The cloud has huge advantages of standardization and automatisation. The only question often heard is, how do I get my database there and how long will I have to face an outage? Here we show that certain techniques (which are pretty common, mature and trusted) we use for on-premise environments can also be used to migrate to the cloud. This will be demonstrated in a live demo. The demo is a POC used to show customers that even for them, this success story is possible. Components on-premises are a 12c CDB rac database with dataguard and a cascading database in the Oracle cloud. The java application makes use of Application Continuity to show that no single transaction is lost on a live database whilst it is migrated and put live in the cloud.

Database migration to the Oracle Cloud, a real life experience

In this session we will talk about our experiences regarding the migration of an Oracle 12 database to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The project started from scratch by configuring the network,  setting up a database, application server (using Oracle Apex) and finally performing the migration of multiple pluggable databases. We will give an overview of the resulting architecture, highlight some things to take care of and also provide useful tips and tricks you could use while migrating to the cloud.

Customer case: Galapagos

In this session we’ll take a look at the road that led to an Oracle Database disaster recovery plan for Galapagos.
