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.
