Over the past couple of months I have been busy working with the solutions architect guys over at EMC, I’ve been assisting with technical whitepapers for high availability solutions with SAP running within VMware vCloud Director environments. Symantec ApplicationHA featured quite heavily within their designs to protect and provide resilience for SAP, Oracle and SQL.
What was cool was seeing the designs being built and then certain scenarios being tested against high availability SLA requirements. We certainly put the solutions through its paces and I am proud to say that ApplicationHA operated as expected without a hitch and ticked all the boxes in the design.
If your building out a vCloud environment and Tier 1 applications like Oracle, SQL and SAP will be running within it then be sure to give the technical whitepapers a read through, they are stacked with some really useful information and have loads of best practices detailed for use in your designs.
