The primary use case of this solution is for data protection, disaster recovery, and it's used as a backup database to restore the primary databases. It gives the client comfort in case of any incidents, disaster or any catastrophic situation because it maintains, manages, and monitors the database and keeps a backup.
We implemented Oracle Data Guard for disaster recovery, even though one can't implement disaster recovery across multiple sites using stretch clusters, and implement a server pool at both sites. You have to build a dedicated server pool on each of the locations.
We primarily use the solution for disaster recovery.
We have a couple of Oracle systems that are attached to different types of applications. In terms of Data Guard, we use it for factory monitoring.
The primary use of this solution is for the high availability. If the database or server crashes, the switches go over to the standby database becoming the primary database. We use Data Guard in order to have a high-availability solution and high-availability configuration in our data center.
Data focus is the main issue. Most of the features of a new database still go to an Oracle administration section.
