Disaster recovery is an essential requirement for enterprise computing. A newly published white paper shows how to design and implement a complete Oracle VM disaster recovery solution for the Oracle Private Cloud Appliance using Site Guard.
This white paper provides a high level view of the process of planning, implementing and validating Oracle VM disaster recovery with Oracle Private Cloud Appliance using Site Guard, focussing on DR at the virtual machine level (entire VMs, rather than applications). It also presents a detailed example of how to configure Site Guard to switchover/failover Oracle VM guests to a standby DR Site. The solution supports both switchover (planned movement of Oracle VM guests to a standby site) and failover (movement of Oracle VM guests to a standby site when the primary site is out of service).
This paper discusses Oracle VM disaster recovery using Site Guard to orchestrate the transition of Oracle VM guests on Oracle Private Cloud Appliance between disaster recovery sites. It assumes a basic architecture where you want to stop and start applications manually. It does not discuss using Site Guard to orchestrate application-level disaster recovery.
