Working in conjunction
with storage replication systems to replicate database transactions
from a mirrored
log to an available ASE (Adaptive Server Enterprise) server
or Oracle® database, Bradmark’s Surveillance MA™ provides
monitoring and alerting capabilities that enhance replication
data reliability and performance.
Sybase Mirror Activator leverages the best attributes of disk mirroring
and transactional replication, ensuring transactional consistency
while dramatically reducing failover time for database applications.
It manages a live, standby database that is available within seconds,
versus hours, of time-to-recovery required by cold standby systems.
With Surveillance MA user-defined thresholds in place, DBAs can
ensure system uptime and increase data availability to more organizations
enabling them to protect their mission-critical applications.
