Implementation of SAP Applications Using Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture Best Practices: With Oracle RAC, Oracle Data Guard, Oracle Recovery Manager & Oracle GRID Control
This paper contains the suggested Oracle 10g Release 2 EE Database Real Application Cluster (RAC) server architecture and implementation of a SAP7.0 Landscape for a large commercial customer. The cluster storage is configured using OCFS2 and Oracle Data Guard is being implemented to provide disaster recovery capabilities. Oracle GRID Control is being used to manage the total landscape. The server infrastructure consisted of Dell PowerEdge R900 and 2950 servers all running 64bit RHEL Linux AS 4.6. Storage is provisioned from an EMC Storage Array. The implementation has been influenced by Oracle's documented Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) best practices for implementing highly available systems.
