SIOS Technology has announced the immediate availability of SIOS LifeKeeper version 9.7 clustering software with new capabilities for high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) protection for SAP HANA environments for enterprises, managed service providers and cloud service providers.
The latest release enables customers to deploy a multitarget high availability environment in which HANA operates on a primary node and, in the event of a failure or disaster, can failover to a secondary and/or a tertiary target node located in a different cloud Availability Zone or on-premises disaster recovery location. Failover can be configured to leverage highly efficient “takeover with handshake” capability that enables efficient switchover for near zero downtime maintenance.
Just as in a traditional two-node SIOS cluster, customers using the HANA Multitarget feature can use one of their cluster nodes as a read-enabled (active/active) secondary node for read-intensive tasks, enabling an optimized balance of workloads and improving the overall performance of the SAP HANA database.
New features and capabilities in SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux V9.7, include:
- HANA Multitarget Feature – Enables protection from local, site-wide and regional disasters; fast, reliable failover to target nodes in geographically separated locations. IT time savings through automation of highly manual, error prone administration steps; and fast recovery time – leverages takeover with handshake capability to speed failover process.
- Added support for:
WebSphere MQ v9.3, RHEL v 9.0
SAP HANA on RHEL 8.6 and SLES 15 SP4
SAP HANA on S/4HANA 2022
SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux version 9.7.0 is now generally available.
