Slow and Expensive Disaster Recovery Site Synchronization
When Jade Global began working with OmniVision Technologies, the business was using Oracle Apps (Oracle E-Business Suite R12) for its ERP system and Oracle Data Guard for its disaster recovery (DR) site. OmniVision has a DR site for database and applications in Colorado and another DR solution in a datacenter located in Austin, Texas. The DR site had been setup with an Oracle application and database server using Oracle Data Guard, a comprehensive software that ensures high availability, data protection and disaster recovery for enterprise data.
Despite having a dedicated pipeline between primary and standby sites, OmniVision was facing multiple issues. Site sync was slow, expensive, and unusable as a standby database due to bandwidth issues. Manual logging was required every few hours to bring the backup sync in line with the primary sync.
All maintenance tasks required in-person travel, increasing cost of maintenance
DR site in frequent state of risk due to power failures, hardware, etc. (80% functional, 20% non-functional)
Issues with Oracle Application server and database server in DR site: Slow site sync, expensive and unusable as a standby database due to limited bandwidth
Performance degradation due to network limitations
