Abstract: A joint IBM SAP proof of concept presenting an end-to-end infrastructure solution for mission critical SAP Supply Chain Management using Advanced Planning and Optimization (APO) and/or Available to Promise (ATP). Each single point of failure is provided with an HA solution including the new PowerHA Hot Standby for SAP liveCache. Hot Standby is an integration of the SAP liveCache via API to IBM storage functionality. The ABAP database is covered by similar quick recovery functionality of DB2 HADR. Both the Tivoli SA MP and PowerHA clustering solutions are covered. Storage virtualization provided by the IBM SAN Volume Controller extends the flexibility and resiliency of the end to end solution based on Power7 and VIOs.
