The app is not Data Guard aware, so when a failover does occur, the app stops working until someone manually points it to the other server and restarts it. Linux clustering would solve that problem.

 If Linux clustering is an option, perhaps a multi-node hyper-converged solution like ones from Simplivity or Nutanix is also an option? I'm not sure that gets you out of the Data Guard game though, depending on how you're using it.

I only mention that because I'm looking in that direction for a possible platform migration myself, and we have ADG.
