SIOS Protection Suite for Linux Version 9.5 is Here!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

We are proud to announce the availability of SIOS Protection Suite for Linux version 9.5. This product introduces advanced automation and application-aware monitoring making it the most comprehensive, out-of-the-box SAP S/4HANA clustering software in the industry.

We know what a hassle it is to try to manually build an SAP S/4HANA cluster, making sure that all of the HANA services will failover to the right locations and start up in the right order. Hours of scripting, testing, and aggravation. And the stakes are high. Getting it wrong can mean failover doesn’t happen or worse – downtime, data loss, lots of aggravated users calling.

That’s why we added intelligent application availability for two-node SAP S/4HANA database configurations that are using HANA System replication (HSR). We’ve built this release to take the hassle and risk out of building and managing a cluster.

SIOS Protection Suite v9.5 Automates and Monitors

Starting from easy, wizard-driven configuration that actually validates your input. No hours of manual scripting… or searching for a mistaken keystroke when things don’t go right.

It monitors all the processes in the HANA stack from the application to the hardware, servers, and network – not just checking that the server is operational like other clustering software.

And unlike other clustering solutions that trigger a failover for everything, if SIOS Protection Suite detects an issue, it automatically takes the appropriate recovery action – whether that’s simply restarting a service, recovering on the node that is in service or orchestrating a failover to a secondary node.

Speaking of failover orchestration, it will automatically ensure that SAP-specific best practices are maintained throughout. For example, it makes sure that on failover or switchover, ASCS is never on a server with the primary application or on the same server with the ERS.

If the wizard-driven configuration isn’t easy enough, we also added a new command-line interface (CLI) cloning feature that lets you deploy a SIOS cluster simply by importing the CLI instructions for configuration. You can also export the CLI instructions of an existing cluster to create a clone of it.

Now you can create a high availability cluster quickly and easily to protect any application, including SQL Server, Oracle, SAP and S/4HANA, from downtime and disasters.
