SAP on UNIX and Oracle With FCP and Network Appliance Storage: Best Practices
This paper is intended to provide customers and partners with the best practices for deploying Network Appliance storage systems in support of mySAP Business Suite solutions running in a UNIX and FCP environment using an Oracle Database. Primary consideration is given to addressing the common storage infrastructure design, operation, and management challenges faced by business and IT leaders deploying the latest generation of SAP solutions. Recommendations are generic and are specific neither to any given SAP application nor to the size and scope of the SAP implementation. This guide assumes a basic understanding of the technology and operation of NetApp and SAP products and was developed based on the interaction of technical staff from Network Appliance, SAP, Oracle, and the customers.
