Most Helpful Review
The ability to restore in a catastrophic event is priceless, since every company must use a backup solution of some sort.
We are able to take backups on a regular interval and restore data/VMs as we choose making the process work as advertised.
The ability to create a replica of all virtual machines is a great feature.
We have been able to set up a failover site that has replicas of our critical VMs.
You can have it setup and running within a few minutes.
If you have a problem with your primary site and can't access your primary database, you can continue working with the database that you have as standby on the other site, by changing its role to primary.
Another valuable feature is the possibility of backing up the database from the standby database instead of the primary database, to avoid backup process overhead in the primary system.
The upgrade process is a bit dated and could use some changes.
UI could use some upgrades. The UI is basic, but functional.
It would be great if the product could be expanded to support other virtual technologies.
I think it would be great to have a graphical interface assistant (like DBCA, ASMCA, NETCA, etc.) for initial configuration, monitoring, configuring Oracle Data Guard Broker and all the Data Guard Broker commands, without needing Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control installed.
