What do you like most about Oracle Data Guard?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
We use Data Guard for online replication from data center, to data center for high availability. This is the most important feature.
The solution is quite stable. We haven't experienced any bugs, glitches, or crashes. We find it to be quite reliable.
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 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.
The solution has been stable so far.
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.
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.
Oracle Data Guard is a free solution. When you apply for Enterprise Manager, it comes for free with the solution.
