I believe what you are after is called Oracle Data Guard.

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/features/availability/dataguardoverview-083155.html

The online docs for it are at:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e25608/toc.htm

There is a ton of information out there once you start searching around for it.

A simpler what?
If you are looking for a step-by-step guide, I'm sure you can find one but I discourage you from using them.  You really need to understand the product/technology before you just jump in and start setting it up.

Once you understand what something is doing and why it is doing it, then setting it up is pretty straight forward.
