SIOS Technology Achieves SAP S/4HANA Certification

SIOS Technology, a provider of IT resilience through intelligent application availability, and its platforms SIOS LifeKeeper 9.4 and SIOS DataKeeper 9.4, sold as SIOS Protection Suite for Linux, have achieved SAP certification (S/4-HA-CLU 1.0) for SAP S/4HANA. 

This certification recognizes that SIOS provides proven technology and deep expertise in delivering High Availability (HA) and Disaster Recovery (DR) for SAP in physical, virtual, and cloud environments. 

Tightly integrated with SAP S/4HANA, this new release delivers features that simplify overall management and increase overall availability protection through automation of setup, monitoring, and failure management within SAP environments.

“SAP is a critical business system that customers increasingly want to move to the cloud,” said Nobu Kita, CEO, SIOS Technology Corp. “We hear from customers and integrators about the challenges they face needing to meet the same service level agreements in the cloud as they have been delivering on-premises.  We understand these requirements and our latest releases with SAP S/4HANA certification, along with simpler and more flexible packaging, further expand our ability to enable customers to move their SAP environments to the cloud with confidence.”

The SIOS Competence Center team at Computer Concept in Dresden worked closely with the SIOS team and AWS to achieve SAP certification.

Typical clustering solutions use a shared storage cluster configuration to deliver high availability, which is not available in the cloud.

SIOS provides the ability to create a clustered HA solution in the cloud, without shared storage, ensuring data protection between two separate servers. 

SIOS DataKeeper continuously replicates changed data between systems in different cloud availability zones and regions, while SIOS LifeKeeper monitors critical SAP system services to ensure availability of SAP applications.  If an outage occurs and the services cannot be recovered, SIOS LifeKeeper will automatically orchestrate a failover to the standby systems. 

To simplify and accelerate the deployment of high availability clusters in the cloud, SIOS provides Automated Deployment Templates. 

These templates enable easy creation of a SIOS SAP cluster and provide complete Step-by-Step guides for AWS environments, and Red Hat and SUSE operating systems. Deployment templates and Step-by-Step guides for Azure will follow in November.
