    99.9% uptime? / upgrade?...


    I wondered how do big companies upgrade they database system without down time?
    I understand high availability stuff like RAC,Data guard etc ...
    But canít get my head around of transferring data from system a to new system (b) or upgrading system a with no down time, itís possible at all? I have seen people claiming 99.9% up time ...is this is the other 0.01%?

    Our SLA is also 99.9% up time, here is how it works... 99.9% up time PLUS scheduled maintenance windows time.

    You do your stuff during maintenance window.
