Manufacturers using ERP systems and databases like SAP, SAP HANA, Oracle Database, SQL Server that need to manage a number of business processes through their operations need high availability (HA) protection.

He goes on to explain how it would not just be an isolated business operation that was affected but it would have a knock-on effect on other business operations too.
