Asynchronous Replication is a backup process used for quick and efficient data recovery. Unlike the synchronous process, this one comes with the benefit of speed and the increased risk of data loss. In the process of asynchronous Replication data from one database is copied to another database, much like in any other backup process. However, in this process the source server doesn’t wait for the data to be written on the backup server before proceeding.
That said, Asynchronous Replication is still a preferred method of database backup and recovery for many companies. Whatever data recovery process companies choose, they have to make sure it works for their needs to ensure minimal data loss and maximal data loss survival, especially in this time and age.
