Non-Stop Data Access
Cost-Effective Protection over Distance
Global enterprises demand always-on application and information availability to remain competitive. The EMC®solution described herein offers a high availability and disaster avoidance strategy for mission-critical applications, such as Oracle database and applications. Recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs) are key metrics when planning a business continuity strategy
For mission-critical Oracle applications, high availability is essential. This dictates aggressive RPOs and RTOs and demands solutions that minimize data loss and recovery times. The main challenges that businesses must consider when designing a high availability and disaster recovery (DR) solution include:
- Eliminating single points of failure (SPOF)—technology, people, processes
- Maximizing resource utilization
- Reducing infrastructure costs
- Managing the complexity of integrating, maintaining, and testing multiple point Solutions
EMC VPLEX and EMC RecoverPoint to provide business continuity and disaster recovery for mission-critical Oracle Extended RAC databases in heterogeneous storage environments:
- EMC VPLEX Metro provides a virtual storage layer that enables an active/active Metro data center with 24/7 application availability, no single points of failure, and zero RPOs and RTOs. In the event of server, site, data center, or network failure, the Oracle database remains available.
- EMC RecoverPoint replication technology uses sophisticated journaling and write splitting to enable continuous replication to a third DR site. This enables fast and easy point-in-time recovery.
The three-site topology deployed for this solution provides these main benefits:
- With VPLEX enabling active/active data centers with zero RTOs and RPOs, customers can avoid the downtime associated with site loss and storage array failures.
- With RecoverPoint replicating production data to a third site, customers can rapidly recover from application data corruption, viruses, or human error, and from wide-scale physical disasters that affect both VPLEX Metro clusters.
- With RecoverPoint journaling technology, customers can recover to specific points in time, in case the latest image is corrupt.
Partners since 1995, EMC and Oracle have helped over 70,000 customers optimize their Oracle software on EMC. Deep investment in jointly engineered, EMC Proven Solutions, and global joint escalation centers make the EMC-Oracle relationship unique.
Deploy next-generation architecture to enable simultaneous information access within, between, and across data centers.
