We want to host an oracle 11g server for a customer. Let say the company and customer are in New York.
our company has a data center in New York and Texas with high speed connection between sites,
Does it make sense to setup a DEV/TEST box in Texas and PROD box local In NEw york. The point of this is to use the DEV/TEST box as a production box in case the PROD box gets a disaster (flood, fire, etc.).
Does this make sense? Is there any pros/cons of doing this versus having two boxes local in New York.
All dba administration will be done in New York.
