Oracle Data Guard Valuable Features
I'm constantly looking for the best solution for protecting my data in data filters, and most are powerless in terms of protecting our Oracle database. The Oracle Replication Solutions and Oracle Data Guard are the best in this area, however. The stability and resiliency are closely monitored, and you cannot find the same protection solution outside of Data Guard or Oracle RAC for protecting your data.
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.View full review »
We have found the replication feature the most useful. We use this feature the most.
The ability to recover a database with less effort and the use of Oracle Data Guard Broker to administer the complete environment are also very useful features.View full review »

We chose this solution for the availability of the databases. Since we can't afford Oracle Grid, this is the best solution if you want something similar that's less expensive.

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.
If anything were to happen you can immediately recall your data and bring your production server back to business.
It's flexible and easy to maintain because you are configuring your primary database and a standby database in one or more locations.View full review »

We only use this solution from a functionality point of view to provide software coverage, so I haven't seen any special functionalities yet. It just really provides recovery in case of a disaster. It also provides a really good product forecast, like what will happen after 2023.View full review »
