The secondary site contains storage, a RAC physical standby database, a RAC logical standby database, and an Oracle Application Server. A dedicated network connects the primary site and the standby site. Data Guard operates to transfer redo data from the primary site to the secondary site. A WAN traffic manager handles communication between the application servers on the primary and secondary sites. Clients send requests through the WAN traffic manager.
