The Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY), the largest in the world has the responsibility of protecting the citizens and property of New York City's five boroughs from fires and fire hazards, providing emergency medical services, technical rescue as well as providing first response to biological, chemical and radioactive hazards.
FDNY wanted an in-house Disaster Recovery (DR) capability, ensuring no loss of data should the production database fail.
Estuate was commissioned to devise a solution that would:
Estuate recommended implementing Oracle Data Guard on Oracle 10g and 11g database due to its higher availability and data protection feature. We created a parallel server that synchronized with the primary server. Estuate used the Oracle Data Guard’s Fast start failover feature that plays a major role in Oracle’s “maximum availability architecture” and provides Automatic role transition i.e. automatic failover to the standby database if the primary database is not available for any unforeseen reason requiring no intervention by the DBA.
This auto transmission took less than 45 seconds to take over. We implemented the complete process right from planning, designing, preparing hardware for installation to configuring and from patch of 11gR1 Database software (Oracle Home) to latest patch in record time.
Estuate can offer proactive solutions and is capable of delivering end-to-end process controlled solutions at a lower cost.
