Maximum Availability Architecture – Oracle’s industry-leading set of database high availability capabilities

Join the Oracle MAA Webcast Series

Markus Michalewicz
Vice President of Product Management

The need to deliver increasing levels of availability continues to accelerate as enterprises reengineer their solutions to gain competitive advantage. Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) provides Oracle customers with valuable insights and expert recommendations which have been validated and tested with enterprise customers to address this need. Joining Oracle Product Management for this webcast series, you will get the latest updates on High Availability (HA), Scalability and Disaster Recovery (DR) best practices for Oracle Database.

Why Oracle MAA? 

Oracle has built upon its enterprise experience with tens of thousands of customers across every region and industry in the world to develop an all-encompassing set of High Availability blueprints and validated solutions called Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA).

With MAA, Oracle offers its customers the ability to address their continuous availability challenges by using key High Availability and Disaster Recovery features built into Oracle Database. These features provide true competitive advantages to enterprises by addressing challenges around data availability, data protection as well as Performance while keeping costs low.

Furthermore, Oracle MAA provides Oracle customers with validated and tested best practices and implementation guidelines. Ongoing communication with the Oracle Database community, architects, software engineers, and database strategists has helped Oracle to develop a deep and comprehensive understanding of various kinds of events that can affect availability or data integrity. Over the years, this led to the development and natural evolution of an array of availability reference architectures.

Oracle MAA offers a choice of reference architectures – Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum – for high availability, data protection, and disaster recovery. Each MAA reference architecture, or high availability tier, uses an optimized set of Oracle capabilities that, when deployed together, reliably achieve target service levels for unplanned outages and planned maintenance events.

The Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze MAA reference architectures, or tiers, are applicable to on-premises, private and public cloud configurations, and hybrid layouts (e.g. on-premises to cloud).

    Three things I strongly believe in: Maximum Availability, Maximum Security and Maximizing Hardware Infrastructure. Together these three things provide a strong technology support system to any business.

    Business Critical Applications or Essential Services needs to operate under any circumstance – on-premise, in the cloud (public or private) and in a hybrid-cloud. People ask for a crystal ball... they want to know the future, eliminate risk, and know what to plan for if the business is attacked, interrupted or has abrupt scalability.

    The main advantage of MAA inherently is the 2nd location since all data and applications are replicated there to eliminate risk. So, is placing your business 100% in-the-cloud the answer? I would argue not.
    The primary benefit of a hybrid-cloud is agility. The need to adapt and change direction quickly is a core principle of any digital business.

    Your enterprise might want (or need) to combine public clouds, private clouds, and on-premises resources to gain the agility it needs for a competitive advantage.

    A hybrid-cloud is a strategic approach as it prevents you from being locked in to a single vendor. As your infrastructure will already be split between two or more systems, it will be easier to migrate to a different public cloud when a better model enters the market. In the simplest of terms, a hybrid-cloud strategy is all about what should go where.
