New High Availability Certification on SAP NetWeaver
Uptime is often taken for granted: It doesn’t become important until something bad happens. That’s unfortunately the case this week, with many data centers still out of commission due to Hurricane Sandy on the east coast of the United States.
Today, more and more IT services are required to achieve extremely high levels of uptime and availability. Such is the case with SAP as NetWeaver users are increasingly looking to maintain HA in order to keep business moving as usual.
This is why we are pleased to announce that SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension is certified for integration with the SAP NetWeaver technology platform. The SAP certification scenario establishes a reference architecture to help ensure compliant implementation of high-availability scenarios for running SAP solutions. For SAP customers, this means reduced unplanned downtime while ensuring continuous access to mission-critical applications and data.
SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension is included with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2 for SAP Applications, the only operating system platform optimized for all mission-critical SAP NetWeaver software solutions and appliances
