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%?
