Because your data is a critical business asset, you depend on having it complete, accurate and available 24x7. Below, I’ve highlighted some key assets we've developed to help you ensure maximum availability.
In 2012, we introduced the Calmest IT guy in the world video series. Watch him to see what it takes to keep business systems available, protect business data from downtime, eliminate idle redundancy of standby servers and recover quickly from human errors.

First meet BarrièrePoker.fr who can now guarantee 24/7 availability for their online gaming platform thanks to their high-performance, scalable transactional platform with Oracle Real Application Clusters and Oracle Active Data Guard replication services that eliminated idle redundancy in their standby database environment to better serve their 10,000 players and responds 7x Faster. Or check out ForeSee who used Oracle Active Data Guard for disaster recovery across their data centers to support data growth with a high performance clustered solution or Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre who created a complete contingency IT infrastructure to ensure security of their hospital records with Oracle Active Data Guard.
