We are going to look into doing remote journaling so we have journals for "todays" transactions off site in case of a disaster. Receivers are changed daily and backed up nightly and taken off site the next day but that gives us a 24 hour window where a disaster could put us back a day. We have a second system at a remote site connected to our main campus over private fiber. The second system is our DR system. It is not setup for high availability and is something we would need to restore to from the most recent backup in the event of it being needed. Since we have it in place I would like to enhance our backups by having journals sent in real time. I did some searching and found descriptions of the commands needed to set this up but the Redbook I found on the concept is from 1999 and I could not find a very good reference to read about the pros/cons and steps needed to get it setup. Is anyone aware of a newer redbook or some article that might explain this better?
