AKIMA@USPTO 02/2012 SR Oracle DBA current

Most production databases at USPTO are high availability (some are two nodes RAC, DATAGUARD… primary has two standbys which are converted into snapshot standby for application/performance testing. ORACLE GOLDEN GATE is our replication tool: (one-way replication/bi-directional replication) we are also replicating (extracting) schemas from a standby (and archived log area) which has to be in an ACTIVE role for this to occur.
