  • Arrow right Arrow rightBecause Auditors ask for documented evidence!
This checklist supports the execution of an Self Assessment regarding Database Stability (Database Health Check) to ensure that the assessed application will continue to work as required (avoiding unplanned outages) or at least, to resume operations as fast as possible. There are many - often simple - details which could prevent your database from working properly, even if you invested significant money into a clustered solution with redundant hardware and automatic failover or even Real Application Cluster (RAC) ©.
