Oracle Disaster Recovery
It doesn’t have to happen to you!
As a consulting organisation, we see it all. Take it from us, many organisations think they’ve got their data protected and sadly learn the hard way that their solution wasn’t up to scratch. It doesn’t have to happen to you! Techno Consulting will help assess your readiness to professionally handle a DR event with services including backup review, architectural review and DR testing.
Organisations that require confidence about their ability to handle DR events will usually implement a standby environment of some description. Techno Consulting is well known for our expertise in designing complex HA and DR architecture. In addition, we’ve partnered with Dbvisit who offer a robust DR solution for customers running Oracle Standard Edition, Standard Edition One and Standard Edition Two environments who are unable to use Oracle Data Guard technology.
Everyone knows DR best practice involves actually testing your DR solution on a scheduled basis, but how many people actually do it? Techno Consulting eases the pain. We review your mechanisms and processes in advance to identify any likely risk areas. Then we work with you to perform a meaningful test of your DR process. With Techno Consulting’s professional approach, your team is supported as they build confidence in all aspects of recovery – leaving you assured of internal capabilities to handle DR events which occur in the real world.
Oracle High Availability
Real Application Clusters (RAC)
Techno Consulting can assist you with your High availability objectives for your database environments using Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC). Google shows 1,530,000 results for “Oracle rack” and only 827,000 for “Oracle RAC”, so we suspect a quick explanation is justified.
Oracle RAC (real application clusters) is a software clustering technology which enables a single database to be run across more than one server. Part of Oracle’s database, RAC is not available with Standard Edition One, comes free with Standard Edition and is an extra cost option with Enterprise Edition. Licensing terms apply for each, and Techno Consulting guides customers through these considerations.
Oracle RAC lets you cluster two or more servers and present a single database to your applications across all nodes within the cluster. The benefits of this vary according to the needs of differing organisations.
For some, the benefits are delivered simply by having two servers in place, giving both scale and a really easy method of dealing with the scenario where one box experiences an outage. In smaller environments, this is achieved using Oracle Standard Edition, so there is no extra license cost for using RAC.
For larger organisations, RAC offers an easy method of incrementally scaling infrastructure as requirements and budgets grow. Large organisations with existing large volume requirements can use RAC technology as a component of building a grid infrastructure to flexibly support the delivery of server and database resources to a variety of business applications. Today, this approach has been adopted to enable “private cloud” style delivery, where utility computing thinking is applied to provide resources to departments as a service, with internal cost centre apportioning based on usage. This places lower demands on department budgets and delivers them more robust infrastructure for a lower cost than equivalent silos. It also provides IT with a much easier to manage environment and one which can flexibly respond to changes in business requirements.easy method of incrementally scaling infrastructure as requirements and budgets grow.

Techno Consulting Consultants have designed and implemented RAC solutions for customers since RAC was first introduced to Australia. This pedigree of Oracle professional services means we have seen a wide range of implementation approaches. Some benefit from using low cost servers, other business cases show benefit from using RAC across two or more expensive, high end servers. RAC is used to build consolidated infrastructure, to scale with minimal decrease in utilisation of resources and to enable patching and upgrades with nil or reduced downtime. It is commonly used as a component of a shared infrastructure environment, running more than one Oracle database instance from the cluster. Techno Consulting can help you assess whether RAC is a smart option for you now, or whether it may be in the future. Those organisations who don’t need RAC now, but see it on the horizon are recommended to talk to Techno Consulting about “single node RAC” configuration when they upgrade their 9i or 10g or 11g database to Oracle 12c on a single server. Contact us for more information about Oracle RAC in your business or to discuss upgrading to Oracle 12c.
Oracle Database Upgrades
Low-risk approaches to upgrading essential database infrastructure.
Majority of Oracle users in Australia are running the second release of Oracle’s 11g database. This database has been widely certified by third party application vendors and has proven to be a robust platform. However, the time has come. Responsible organisations looking to adopt low-risk approaches to upgrading essential database infrastructure typically avoid first release product.
The 12c database was released in June 2013. Oracle has ceased Premier Support for Oracle 11.2 since January 2015. The time has come to initiate your plans to move systems from Oracle 11g to Oracle 12c.
There are some new features in Oracle’s 12c database you should be aware of, such as Pluggable databases and Database In Memory. Oracle’s 12c Pluggable database can help you consolidate your database foot print by simplifying consolidation, provisioning and upgrades.

What Our Clients are saying About our Work
Dipak provided Oracle database support to our Remedy platform for 10 years. He continually demonstrated expert DBA and UNIX skills along with ownership, accountability and prompt incident response times. I recommend Dipak and his company Techno Consulting to any potential new customer. Nick Soo: MANAGER, IT DELIVERY BAI COMMUNICATIONS
I have worked with Dipak for almost a decade and found his expertise and dedication to building and supporting mission-critical database infrastructure to be second-to-none. Dipak is deeply involved in our global financial payments business throughout the database planning, design, deployment and maintenance phases. He seeks to understand business requirements and application behaviour and incorporate that knowledge into his work. I would recommend Dipak and Techno Consulting for any enterprise that requires the very best database support. Brendon Pace: Head of IT Infrastructure & Security – Currency Select Pty Ltd
I am happy to recommend Dipak Sharma for his software support work. For many years Dipak has provided support and maintenance services for the Oracle database back-end to our specialised accounting package. At first Dipak worked for another firm, but when that company closed, Dipak started his own company, Techno Consulting, I was very pleased that he was able to continue the work. Because an accounting system is such a critical component of any business it is very important to have someone very reliable and competent to ensure it continues to operate as it should. Techno Consulting has proven to be that organisation for us. Dr David Bedford: Moggill Constructions Pty. Ltd. – Director & Chairman
Techno Consulting was pivotal in delivering Oracle database services that enabled our project to proceed to commissioning. They were flexible to work with our dynamic timeline, and were exceptionally professional in their delivery. I have no hesitation to use and recommend their services for future projects.
