What's New in Rocket D3

Q. Why would I need a solution for uninterrupted operation?

A. Today's focus is on security and protecting data against business interruptions of any kind. Where system failure is a major concern, it is very important to incorporate IT strategies that significantly limit downtime. A Hot Backup solution can dramatically reduce the financial costs involved as well as help protect a company's valuable reputation.

Q. What is Hot Backup?

A. Hot Backup is a Rocket D3 Database Management System software feature. Selected transactions are transferred to the secondary D3 server, which acknowledges and processes the transactions, maintaining a copy of the database, ready to handle the workload should a system failure occur on the primary D3 server.

Q. How does it work?

A. A secondary D3 server is required to be the same specification as the primary D3 server. Hot Backup's secondary D3 server can be in any location where a reliable TCP/IP (an industry standard communications protocol) network connection can be made between the two servers. If the primary D3 server fails, users can be switched immediately to the secondary D3 server, minimizing downtime to just the time it takes to re-establish the users terminal connections on the secondary D3 server.
