I am taking this oppurtunity to do a QA on our proposed Hardware Design.
SAP Applications: ECC 6.00, BI7, PI7 and Sol Man 4
All these environments will be set up in Cluster and High Availability
OS: Windows 2003 Server Data Centre Edition
DB: SQL 2005
Everything will be running on IA64 Architecture
We would like to propose a DRP strategy that would utilize the Testing Infrastructure in case of a DR.
We will be replicating the DB either through SAP replication or through log shipping. We haven't confirmed on a strategy here.
Essentially, we would set this up in such a way that if PRD is destroyed and we need to recover in QAS, we would essentially bring down the QAS and turn on PRD.
Would something like be advisable or not?
Please feel free to ask me more questions for clarifications..I am sure I have missed a lot of information here, but I would like to get this conversation going.
Ofcourse points would be rewarded for all answers!
