BUSINESS CONTINUITY & DISASTER RECOVERY WITH F5


ACCELERATE DATABASE REPLICATION AND BACKUP OVER THE WAN
KEY BENEFITS

Accelerate data replication and backups over the WAN Save bandwidth and encrypt communications Meet business operations requirements (such as RTOs, RPOs, SLAs) and regulatory requirements

The F5 Application Ready Solution for Oracle Database offers improved operations and agility at the database tier and faster data replication over the WAN. With F5, IT can deliver an application and database architecture that optimizes user experience and data integrity on a global scale, while also providing end-to-end protection to secure data and the business.

The Challenge For business continuity and disaster recovery efforts, it makes sense to maintain databases in different locations. New industry and government rules concerning data protection and disaster recovery reinforce this need. However, securing and replicating data over distances using the WAN can be difficult, especially while providing uninterrupted service to users. Oracle provides a number of different solutions for database replication and backup, but challenges can arise when moving large amounts of data over the WAN. Existing WAN links might be too slow and network-based backups can cause network congestion, slowing down application servers. Latency and packet loss are also risks in WAN networks not optimized for large data transfers. Adding bandwidth is expensive and might not solve the problem. In the end, businesses face challenges meeting recovery time objectives (RTOs), recovery point objectives (RPOs), and application performance SLAs The Solution F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) with BIG-IP WAN Optimization Module (WOM) overcomes latency and congested network issues to provide secure, rapid data transfers for data replication while providing fast application performance for users. BIG-IP LTM with iSessions technology offers secure and compressed site-to-site communication for data traveling over the WAN. Any two BIG-IP LTM devices can be deployed symmetrically to create a site-to-site secure connection to improve transfer rates, reduce bandwidth, and offload applications for more efficient WAN communication.

BIG-IP WOM enables two BIG-IP devices to communicate across the WAN to optimize traffic during data replication and backup. It also provides secure symmetric adaptive compression to ensure the fastest data reduction for any TCP traffic between BIG-IP systems. This offloads the CPU cycles required to do compression and encryption on the host.
