• Was it Einstein who once said “Things should be as complex as they need to be, but no more ...”?
    I’m sure he would think that Dbvisit Standby hit the mark! As the solution takes a complex problem and distills it down to a reliable, cost effective, and easy to use product. It works as advertised, and the support is great!
    If anyone is considering this product, give it a try, it sells itself.

Smart Alternative to Oracle Data Guard

Dbvisit Standby is trusted in over 110 countries to protect your data from hardware and logical failures, natural disasters, human error and outages, and ensure business continuity. It is the smart alternative to Oracle Enterprise Edition (EE) and Data Guard because it enables you to cost-effectively protect your critical data infrastructure and get more out of your existing investment in Oracle® Database Standard Edition (SE), Standard Edition One (SE1) and Standard Edition Two (SE2) software.

Reasons to consider Dbvisit Standby with SE, SE1 or SE2 versus EE and Oracle Data Guard:

  • Works with Microsoft Windows, UNIX and Linux, 32 bit and 64 bit
  • Supports Oracle versions 8i to 12c, both 32 bit and 64 bit
  • Provides automatic graceful switchover (role reversal)
  • Offers automatic continuation without intervention of DBA
  • Allows automatic notification alerting via email
  • Includes automated management and monitoring of Oracle archive logs on both primary and standby server
  • Includes simple failover to activate standby database in case of disaster
  •  Offers a maximum performance mode
  • Has encryption and compression as standard
  • Allows multiple standby databases each with their own schedule
  • Provides switch over for planned maintenance and upgrades
  • Creates the Standby database automatically
  • Protects from database corruption being replicated
  • Automatically replicates all changes including new tablespaces, datafiles, tables and columns
  • Supports RAC (RAC is a free option with Oracle SE, whereas RAC is an additional priced option with EE)
