Replicated Database Servers


Replicated database servers help to ensure continuous operation of the database management system (DBMS) by duplicating its functionality. This leads to an increase in the availability of database services by replicating the underlying components (such as database background processes, memory buffer areas, and so on).

Replicated database servers or replicated databases?

Distinguish between replicated database servers in which the DBMS is replicated (discussed here) and replicated databases in which the data itself is replicated.
