More Actifio Pros »

"Oracle Data Guard is a free solution. When you apply for Enterprise Manager, it comes for free with the solution.""Technical support is very good. If at any time we write a ticket, we get the appropriate answer on time.""We chose this solution for the availability of the databases. We can't afford Oracle Grid, this is the best solution if you want something similar that's less expensive.""The solution is really very stable. One good thing about it, compared to other products, is that you can just run it and forget about it. Unless you come across some interruptions in the network, it works like a charm.""The solution has been stable so far.""The most valuable features are the backup and restore. With this in place along with the clustering, the database is safe from hacking, hardware failure, power failures, and system crashes.""It's a very good solution if you want to protect your data across two data centers, or you have a middle man or many administrators who use these solutions for protecting their data. It's very reliable compared to other solutions that are most often not storage-based.""The solution is quite stable. We haven't experienced any bugs, glitches, or crashes. We find it to be quite reliable."

Cons
"While the product does support various databases, the company needs to make more of an effort to support N-minus-one compatibility.""Areas that need improvement would be the support for recovery in the physical environment."

"Oracle Data Guard is stable, but you need to keep monitoring the system all the time. You need to keep monitoring the archives.""The database administration needs improvement. With Oracle, we have a lot of features for administrating data, but it might be too many. It needs to be simplified. It should be automated. Looking at Enterprise Manager, there are too many KPIs in place.""For every standby server you have, you must pay a licensing fee, which is the main disadvantage.""The implementation is complex for anyone who's jumping into it without any experience. It's all command-line driven implementations. For some, that's a turn-off.""It is a rather complex solution, so it could be more user-friendly.""When the data replicates into the standby database there is a possibility of having a microsecond amount of data loss. The data loss occurs when there is a network disconnection between the primary and secondary standby database located in the data centers or if there is a crash in the primary database.""The IP implementation and maintenance are a little bit hard to manage across Oracle solutions, including Oracle Data Guard.""The pricing of the solution is quite high. They should do what they can to bring it down so that it is more reasonable for customers like us."
