Deploying SAP HANA SR Scale Up on SLES for SAP Applications HA

This course provides an understanding of the tasks and processes involved in deploying SAP HANA with System Replication in a Scale Up configuration on SLES for SAP Applications with HA. It is based on SUSE Best Practices. The course starts by providing an overview of SAP HANA and using System Replication to provide high availability for SAP HANA. It then covers the storage and configuration required to successfully deploy SAP HANA SR on SLE HA. Next the required cluster resources are configured and tested. The course finishes by discussing administration procedures specific to the configuration then the SLE cluster nodes are tuned specifically to host SAP HANA.
