SAP CRYSTAL REPORT CLUSTERING

I am using SAP crystal report 2011 server with 5 cals. now my scenario has changed. I wanted to install it on 2 servers and make it a cluster. So it will have load balancing as well as zero tolerance for server fail over. but i came to know that SAP crystal report 2011 does not support both of it. So I checked with SAP crystal report 2013, but it only supports load balancing but not zero tolerance for server fail over. So should I go for SAP crystal report for enterprise. If yes then tell me which version to buy. I have 4000 concurrent users and two servers should have 2000 concurrent users at any given point. please suggest me correct product, basic server configuration and if clustering of servers can handle my two issues of load balancing as well as server fail over.

    For this volume of users, you're going to have to upgrade from Crystal Reports Server to the full BI Platform. This would also be required to get the automatic server fail-over. The price for this is significantly more than for Crystal Reports server, but it's the only way to handle the volume that you're looking at. You'll also probably need to have a cluster of more than 2 servers unless the servers have lots of CPU and RAM available.

    • You'll need to contact your local SAP Sales office form information about pricing. You're looking for the BI Platform 4.1. As part of the implementation for that, there are tools that can be used for sizing to determine what you'll need for CPUs and RAM.

      I'm not really supposed to be doing sales stuff here. But if you're looking for assistance with the implementation, you can go to the company website listed on my profile - we do a lot of this sort of thing.
