Disaster Recovery

  Experience    Expertise    Excellence  

Companies now consider 24x7x365 availability of their web presence or ERP as a critical requirement for keeping up with today’s ever-changing market dynamics. They cannot afford to face downtime of mission-critical applications—and especially their databases. Their ability to withstand outages, natural disasters, and infrastructure interruptions will determine their level of business continuity, and thus directly affect their bottom line. Buda Consulting offers the following important services to ensure business continuity:

  • High Availability
  • Disaster Recovery

The importance of High Availability in any business cannot be underestimated: downtime costs alone have been estimated in the millions of dollars per hour in some industries. Database downtime is what a CTO’s nightmares are made of, and this could be the result of various causes: natural disasters, power outages, or server failures.

At Buda Consulting, we understand the extent to which companies rely on databases and the importance of high availability (HA). Our Reliability Review is a proven and tested high availability solution that will take stock of your current risk scenario and help determine the level of protection your business requires.

High Availability Technology
  • Server Clustering
  • Oracle RAC
  • Mirroring
  • Oracle Data Guard
  • Oracle Streams
  • Virtualization
  • Disk-based backup technologies

Our expertise ensures a marked increase in uptime, apart from keeping your database highly available.

We believe that every business and every organization is unique in its character: Buda’s consultants learn and understand the dynamics of your organization, from tolerance for downtime and data loss, to your specific hardware and software technologies, and your current and projected budgets for IT. With this knowledge we design and implement the HA solution we know will best suit your requirements.

Disaster Recovery

Disaster Recovery is oftentimes considered more as insurance than assurance. This is not merely a ploy to sell fear – it is protection against events that strike when least expected.

There’s no measuring loss of data – be it an hour’s outage or a week’s, the resultant disaster is the same. However, the speed of recovery can salvage operating revenue and preserve customer trust. This is especially true for organizations that operate without breaks and require robust, resilient disaster recovery solutions to get them back on their feet again.

Disaster Recovery Technologies

At Buda Consulting, we provide resilient, reliable, and responsive disaster recovery solutions that fit SMBs as much as large organizations. Our solutions include:

  • Disk-based back technologies
  • Oracle RMAN
  • Oracle Data Guard
  • Oracle Streams

Whether you need a hot standby site in another state or a cold standby site in another room, we help you select, architect, and implement the perfect solution for your business and your budget.


Database-Specific Disaster Recovery Options

Our Disaster Recovery options include the backup and restore utility.  Alternatively, we can use third party applications such as Double-Take to create a hotsite using clustering (with no shared disks). In certain circumstances, replication can be used as well to create a standby database.

Oracle Disaster Recovery options include RMAN, Data Guard and Oracle Streams. With Data Guard, you can build a robust environment with hot or cold standby databases and it is usually the best option for Oracle Disaster Recovery. Oracle streams can be used to create replicated databases as well.
