Considerations for Disaster Recovery and Automated Failover Clusters for SAP HANA Infrastructures
Data corruption, component failures, and power outages are just a few examples of major issues that IT departments must be prepared for at any given moment. In the event of system downtime, organizations must have a proper disaster recovery (DR) and high availability (HA) strategy in place to minimize the business impact. But how can organizations ensure failover and fallback procedures run smoothly?
Follow a recent SAPinsider Live Q&A, Peter Schinagl, Technical Architect, Business Development, and Markus Gürtler, Technical Alliance Manager SAP, Business Development, of SUSE answered questions from attendees regarding DR and HA scenarios for SAP HANA infrastructure, automation solutions for failover, system replication, and more. Read the transcript of the SAPinsider Live Q&A conversation where Peter and Markus discussed best practices for DR and automated failover clusters for SAP HANA infrastructures.
