Is anyone running SAP ERP or BI (NW 7.0) HA , clustering?and how'da do that


We are putting together plans and recommendations as to performing an upgrade of possibly the MS OS from 2003 to 2008, and SQL 2005 to 2008.

But, want to present options and costs of doing either an inplace upgrade of sql 2005 to 2008 (which I've done much of the research already). The prequisits for doing an inplace upgrade of 2005 and 2008 on Win 2003 is the cheaper option. But for us to take advantage of HA and IF available for SAP clustering, then we would want to upgrade Windows to 2008 as well.

Has anyone done this or is in the process ? and what plans are there? what would the landscape look like ? Is a sapinst required (to install SAP again) in order to take the path of installing SAP with HA, and is clustering supported by SAP?
