The assignment does not mention anything about the DR environment. The Cade book mentions the hot standby option for the major tiers of the application. If we treat the hot standby as a HA option, then does it not make sense to make them available normally to the user, instead of as a hot standby in which case the capacity is, in my opinion, not utilized at all under normal circumstances. The licensing costs may not reduce for this hot standby. However, if the hot standby is used as a DR option, then do we have to plan and show the DR setup as well?

A failover mechanism will increase the quality of service of your production servers.
A hot standby could be part of this failover mechanim.
