How HA is achived in Oracle Exadata

November 27th, 2012 Comments off
  1. Each Exadata Database Machine has completely redundant hardware including redundant InfiniBand networking, redundant Power Distribution Units (PDU), redundant power upplies, and redundant database and storage servers.
  2. Oracle RAC protects against database server failure.
  3. ASM provides data mirroring to protect against disk or storage server failures.
  4. Oracle RMAN provides extremely fast and efficient backups to disk or tape.
  5. Oracle’s Flashback technology allows backing out user errors at the database, table or even row level.
  6. Using Oracle Data Guard, a second Exadata Database Machine can be configured to maintain a real-time copy of the database at a remote site to provide full protection against site failures and disasters.
