This article applies to Neverfail for Oracle Database.
There are two reasons why the Flash Recovery Area is not protected:
1. Flash recovery is not required on a system protected by Neverfail Heartbeat. Via Failover, Neverfail Heartbeat provides immediate access to any Oracle database that may suffer a disk failure. The Oracle Flash Recovery Area only provides a copy of the data for use by the Oracle Recovery process.
2. Oracle recommends using an external drive, which could not be protected by Neverfail Heartbeat.
