Why ODA is a perfect solution for Disaster Recovery

While disasters do occur every now and then, many production deployments lack a disaster recovery (DR) system. Oracle Database Appliance makes a great solution for deploying a disaster recovery system (especially for production ODA deployments) for the following reasons.

1. Easy to setup (setup entire DR site in a matter of hours)

2. Matches production platform exactly for your ODA production environment

3. Low total cost of solution

4. Large additional CPU, Memory, and Storage capacity available for additional use

5. Leverage low CPU initial configuration on DR side and scale dynamically only when needed

6. Consistent performance between production and standby environments

7. Easy to maintain DR solution (sort of one-button maintenance)

8. Achieve higher availability during both planned and unplanned downtimes

9. Use DR environment for additional purposes (use extra capacity for deploying DBs and VMs)

10. Test and validate patches using standby first patching

11. Distribute workload and CPU allocation between production and DR using Active Data Guard

12. Keep DR environment up-to-date at the touch of a button (easy to synchronize production and DR environments)

13. Use ODA as DR solution for both ODA and non-ODA production environments

14. Easy to migrate from your non-ODA infrastructure to ODA infrastructure

BI for the Mid Market

Tammy Bednar, Will Hutchinson, Rob Klaassens, and Mike Mrazek, Oracle Corp.

Oracle and industry analysts have seen a rapid expansion of business intelligence and data warehouse solutions into midsize and smaller organizations.  The need to understand how they are serving their customers, how their suppliers are serving them and the opportunity to drive growth and cost reductions requires insights into data. ERP, Performance Management systems and CRM/CX systems are great way to collect data but do not provide and easy and flexible way to combine data from multiple sources for in depth analysis.

Traditionally, midsize and smaller organizations have relied on spreadsheets or downloads of data to a personal database to meet these needs. However these solutions do not scale and suffer from problems of inconsistent data, errors, manual work and non-repeatable processes for gathering and analyzing data, leading to the inability to respond quickly. In the past, these organizations have not invested in business intelligence because the perception was that a Business Intelligence or Data Warehouse Strategy was too expensive to install and maintain. One would have to buy and configure hardware, a database, BI and ETL tools, and other middleware. The time, effort and cost to support these types of solutions would typically overwhelm most midsize IT staffs. Also, deploying these systems can cost several hundred thousand dollars over five years, after taking into account both out of pocket costs and the time the staff spends on BI, time which if it were available could effectively be spent elsewhere.

Register today to attend and learn how you can replace those Excel spreadsheets and Access databases with the type of analytics big companies have, analytics you thought you could never afford.
