Oracle Solaris Cluster is engineered for business-critical applications such as SAP, providing application and service recovery for both traditional Oracle Solaris enterprise deployments and Oracle Solaris-based private, public, and hybrid clouds. Thoroughly tested with Oracle Sun servers, storage systems, and networking components, Oracle Solaris Cluster delivers a high-availability infrastructure for Oracle Sun servers, protecting mission-critical applications and databases in multi-tier, virtualized configurations. Built-in support for Oracle databases and SAP applications results in solution-specific failure detection and recovery, resulting in minimal outages due to component failure.
Extreme Availability for Enterprise Applications
Tightly coupled with Oracle Solaris, Oracle Solaris Cluster detects system failures instantly and consistently. Its faster notification and application failover significantly reduces overall service recovery time, thus drastically cutting application outages. Oracle Solaris Cluster provides out-of-the-box support for applications and databases from Oracle and SAP, avoiding any development and scripting tasks and facilitating immediate deployment in traditional systems or virtual environments. The Oracle Solaris Cluster agent toolkit supports custom applications with minimal effort. Oracle Solaris Cluster also includes multi-site, multi-cluster disaster recovery services that feature automated application failover and coordination with application, storage, and host-based replication solutions.
- Oracle Clusterware. Oracle’s portable cluster software allows independent servers to work as a single system. As an independent server pool infrastructure that is fully integrated with Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC), Oracle Clusterware protects any kind of application in a failover cluster.
- Oracle Grid Infrastructure. Oracle Clusterware 11g Release 2 combines with Oracle Automatic Storage Management (ASM) to create Oracle Grid Infrastructure, private cloud infrastructure software that sets a new level in the management of private cloud-based applications.
- SAP Control. Oracle has created an Oracle Clusterware tool, SAP Control (SAPCTL), to enable you to easily manage SAP high availability resources. SAPCTL provides an easy-to-use user interface, scripts, and dependencies of Oracle Clusterware and SAP high availability components. SAPCTL consolidates the functionality of the Oracle command-line tools by enabling you to easily manage the SAP Enqueue Service for ABAP and Java, the SAP Replication Service for ABAP and Java, and the additional virtual IP addresses used by the SAP Enqueue Service for ABAP and/or Java. SAPCTL also monitors the associated SAP Start Service for supported SAP instances. The SAP Start Service process is started automatically by SAPCTL if the SAP instance gets started on a cluster node or relocated to another node in the cluster. There is no need to bring up all SAP Start Processes on system boot by sapinit procedure as this task is performed by SAPCTL after startup of Oracle Clusterware.
- Oracle RAC. Oracle Real Application Clusters support the transparent deployment of a single database across a cluster of servers, providing fault tolerance from hardware failures or planned outages. Available as an option with Oracle Database 11g, Oracle RAC is a key component of Oracle's private cloud architecture. Oracle RAC is supported with SAP applications.
