Based on the specific requirements of the customer, a database-based replication disaster recovery solution was selected. WFT designed the disaster recovery solution encompassing database, application, database binaries, operating system, non-database file systems, archive logs and NFS file systems using a combination of native database tools and custom scripts to enable the customer to meet their Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) requirements.

The ability to perform disaster recovery testing without impacting the production data replication and usage of minimal server resources at the disaster recovery site with the capability to scale up when needed, are some of the core capabilities of the solution offered by WFT to this customer.
