We're looking into providing an off-site disaster recovery server for some of our clients, & I'd appreciate some input on the best way to do this.

All the clients' databases are 11g Standard Edition on Windows servers, typically 5 - 10gb, up to 20 concurrent users, & all use archive log mode. A full RMAN backup is done every night.

The plan is to put a server in a datacentre, with one or two databases containing a schema for each client. We'll then synchronise each schema with the clients' live data every hour or so (it doesn't matter if they lose an hour's data). If a client's own server goes into meltdown, they can connect to ours using terminal services & carry on working until their server's repaired.

So the question is, what's the best way to keep our DR server synchronised (more or less) with the clients' data, bearing in mind most of them only have standard ADSL connections?
