We are implementing SAP Business Suite on SAP HANA for one of our client. We want to know if we can combine implementation of SAP HANA in Appliance model with TDI. I can't find any details about it, Notes for example.

We want to implement SAP HANA as follow:

PRD - SAP HANA Appliance Server

PRD (Standby System Replication) + DEV - SAP HANA TDI Server

PRD (Standby System Replication Second Data Center) + QAS - SAP HANA TDI Server

Is it possible to implement hybrid Appliance + TDI with System Replication SAP HANA infrastructure?.

Maybe do you have documentation/ SAP Note to confirm this solution/approach?.

Is this solution/approach will be supported by SAP of course in accordance to rules for Appliance and TDI?.

Best regards,

I assume you have single nodes.

From the technical view it's no difference if you use a TDI or an appliance, you set up your replication as normal.

So yes, you can replicate from Appliance to TDI and vice versa.

I'm just not sure if you can replicate to two targets.

Of course you have to keep an eye on your sizing, but that's necessary in every environment ;-)

technically, Yes, you can. Only difference between SAP HANA Appliance and TDI is the manner of building the two. From functional point of view both are same.

Yes, this hybrid approach is supported by SAP considering the fact that TDI is as per SAP Standards. Refer document for further details.
