Lime Guard is our cost-effective business continuity service for Oracle databases. In contrast to traditional business continuity solutions such as Oracle Data Guard, Lime Guard makes it possible to rent an Oracle RDBMS licence, along with other resources, from public cloud providers; thereby incurring minimal upfront cost.
Lime Guard can be used for the shipping and application of transaction logs, within a Standard Edition based infrastructure, as opposed to the Enterprise Edition. The service includes the monitoring and management of a standby system in a public cloud, which is kept to date with the main system. If a disaster occurs, the cloud based standby system would replace the main system until it was restored.
The service is perfect for those who have not implemented a business continuity solution due to high costs. Utilising Lime Guard leads to major cost savings in hardware and software set up, maintenance and support, as well as environment and upgrade costs.
