What is most valuable?

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... more»

What needs improvement?

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.

What do you think of Oracle Data Guard?

Valuable Features We use it for backing up our data, so from the standby instance. • Room for Improvement Data Guard has been around for a very long time and a lot of big companies are using it. I don't see that it needs any improvement or anything like that. I think it's pretty solid. • Use of Solution I've been using it for more than 15 years. • Stability Issues We've experienced no issues with performance. • Customer Service and Technical Support When you open up SR Oracle has a list of things which they ask for.

What version, what...

What is most valuable?

I have found its switchover functionality to be most useful using which you can perform disaster recovery within no time. Its feature of FAL is also pretty useful that helps to keep both sites (primary and standby) synchronized. Logical... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Active Data Guard has helped us a lot in achieving the real time reporting by offloading our heavy reports from Production to Standby database.

What needs improvement?

Limited functionality to exclude any schema/table from replication would be helpful. Currently Data Guard replicates whatever DML operation is performed on primary database is replicated to standby database as it is. To improve it bit... more»
