Tools and Services for High Availability

Purpose

This section describes the tools and services provided by SAP for use with SAP systems. You can use them to manage your SAP system downtime for improved availability.

Most of the tools and services described in this section are relevant for database administration. However, the Computing Center Management System (CCMS) and the Consulting Services apply to many different aspects of the SAP system.

Implementation Considerations

For detailed technical guidance when implementing a specific product or feature, contact the appropriate source, such as your SAP consultant.

Integration

High availability for the SAP system should be part of a system-wide strategy. Therefore, you should also consider other components of the system, such as the SAP system itself, the database, the network, the hardware and system software, and so on.
