In today’s digital economy, a business can’t afford to go down, even for a second.
Enterprises seek to base most, if not all, decision making on insights drawn from data, which means there is no margin for error if the flow of that data is ever disrupted. For that reason, just about every organization has turned to data replication as an essential tool within their availability and continuity strategies.
But keeping data highly available is no longer a simple matter of backing up one database with an up-to-the-second copy of another. Enterprise data environments are complex, with many sources and modes of computing. A hybrid data infrastructure calls for new approaches to data replication.
Unisphere Research fielded a study among the members of the Independent Oracle Users Group to examine the key challenges, priorities, and solutions being adopted by Oracle Database sites. This study, sponsored by Quest Software, includes the views and experiences of 285 IT decision makers, representing a fairly broad sample of company types and sizes. The survey found that databases continue to expand in size and complexity, while at the same time, more enterprises are turning to cloud-based resources to keep information highly available.
