Automate SAP HANA System Replication with SLES for SAP Applications

SAP HANA System Replication on SLES for SAP Applications

What is this solution about?

The solution created by SUSE is to automate the takeover in SAP HANA system replication setups.

The basic idea is that only synchronizing the data to the second SAP HANA instance is not enough, as this only solves the problem of having the data shipped to a second instance. To increase the availability you need a cluster solution, which controls the takeover of the second instance as well as providing the service address for the client access to the database.

Your SAP on Azure – Part 4 – High Availability for SAP HANA using System Replication

In the today’s post, I would like to present you a solution for protecting the HANA database server.

SAP HANA database offers two solutions that are designed for High Availability:

a) Host Auto-failover – in this solution you need to deploy additional host to the current HANA database and configure it to work in standby mode. In case the active node failures, the standby host can automatically switch operations to the secondary node. This solution requires a shared storage, which we already know is a small problem for Azure

Creating a HANA calculation view for currency conversion providing exchange rates for all days including non-working days like holidays and weekends

There is sometimes a need to calculate the exchange rate for weekends and holidays in business use cases.  Since there is no exchange rate for these dates because they are non-working days, the business usually decides to take the most recent previous exchange rate and apply it to these dates.  For example, since December 30, 2017 is a Saturday, the exchange rate for this date will be the exchange rate for December 29, 2017 (Friday) – the most recent previous working day with an exchange rate.  This blog illustrates how to create a HANA calculation view that will provide the exchange rate from USD to EUR of any date in the period of the last 3 years.
