SAP S/4HANA environments comprise multiple services that need to be maintained in suitable locations and start in the proper order. Running your SAP, NetWeaver, and SAP S/4HANA workloads in the cloud can offer many benefits. When you consider the scalability, with freedom from on-premises system maintenance, flexible disaster recovery options, and the low-cost infrastructure, all while simplifying IT operations, migrating to the cloud seems like a no-brainer. But failing to consider your high availability (HA) protection requirements for these complex systems can negate all of those benefits. Manually configuring and managing HA clusters in these complex environments can be time-consuming and prone to human errors that increase the risk of catastrophic downtime and data loss.
In this session, Brett Barwick, Senior Software Engineer of SIOS Technology Corp., and Tamara Astakhov, Sr. Partner Solution Architect for Big Data & Analytics at AWS, will discuss best practices for SAP high availability and how to achieve near-zero downtime. They will also share insights on requirements for disaster recovery for SAP and the benefits of the AWS cloud with SAP-Certified SIOS solutions to optimize your infrastructure with price, performance, and availability.
Attend this webinar to:
- Assess the business criticality of your SAP S4/HANA environments and determine the appropriate level of availability/ high availability/ DR needed in AWS.
- Understand how to implement a clustering solution with wizard-driven application-specific configuration and management to eliminate the complexity.
- Learn to create a clustering environment that will detect application operation-level downtime and orchestrate failover quickly and according to best practices.
- Identify the disaster recovery strategies to implement for SAP.
