Advantages of Creating a Database Shadow
Go Up to Creating a Database Shadow
Shadowing offers several advantages:
- Recovery is quick: Activating a shadow makes it available immediately.
- Creating a shadow does not require exclusive access to the database.
- You can control the allocation of disk space. A shadow can span multiple files on multiple disks.
- Shadowing does not use a separate process. The database process handles writing to the shadow.
- Shadowing runs behind the scenes and needs little or no maintenance.
