Given the mission-critical nature of SAP applications, high availability and performance for SAP environments is a primary focus for IT organizations who rely on it to run their businesses. Do you run SAP and have multi-9 SLA’s? Veritas InfoScale works with SAP applications and SAP HANA databases to help you achieve better resource utilization and performance for your SAP ecosystem at a reduced cost. Let’s talk about how InfoScale ensures that your SAP applications are both highly available and performing as expected (or better!). This blog post briefly describes the InfoScale HA solution and provides an insight into the relevant InfoScale agents for SAP and their capabilities.
Consider a scenario where a failure or a disaster has occurred in your SAP environment. As part of the recovery process, you need to perform a manual takeover, which involves longer downtime for the SAP database, servers, and applications. Consequently, your organization may suffer downtime that could affect business opportunities.
Veritas InfoScale provides an HA/DR solution for SAP ecosystems, which helps reduce application downtime. It does so by automating the manual tasks that you need to perform as part of a takeover operation. You can also employ the InfoScale HA solution to automate the takeover operation during planned maintenance activities. It can help you achieve Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for your SAP ecosystem by enabling faster recovery without any manual intervention.
