I am pleased to announce the general availability of HA/DR feature for SAP Business Suite on SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise version 16.0 SP02 PL04. This version brings a lot of exciting features that have been highly anticipated.


In the new setup, a lot has changed (for the better). Some of the highlights of the new release are as follows:


  • Additional replication modes are now supported with SAP ASE 16.0

    • Synchronous Replication Mode (Hot Standby)

    • Near-Synchronous Replication Mode (Hot Standby)

    • Asynchronous Replication Mode (Warm Standby) - Also present in SAP ASE 15.7

  • Only remote distribution mode is supported

  • SAP Replication Server will be installed on the same hardware as SAP ASE 16.0 (co-located). No additional hardware is required.

  • Additional features for monitoring SAP Replication Server using RMA (Replication Management Agent).

  • HA/DR Configuration will be done using a command line utility called "setuphadr" which will make automation a lot easier than in the past.


HA/DR Architecture with SAP ASE 16.0 is as follows:
