We recently deployed the Oracle RAC on linux platform in the primary site. We do not have the similar operating system environment in the secondary site. We would like to replicate data from primary to secondary site. Would Oracle Data Guard will work across the different operating systems ? If No then what will the alternate solution to replicate the database from primary to secondary site?
Appreciate the reply or ideas to achieve this..
Yes, Oracle gives options to do cross platform Dataguard.
Please refer to "Data Guard Support for Heterogeneous Primary and Physical Standbys in Same Data Guard Configuration (Doc ID 413484.1)" for more details.
There are some restrictions and limitations which you can consider for your exact environment before attempting.
No offense, but your statement is not true. While there are limits you can in fact use different operating systems.
As stated by nagulan.selvakumar, this is the correct document to confirm this:
