HANA runs great IBM Power Systems. There are more than 1000 customers are enjoying performance, ras features and flexibility  of HANA on Power!


Even in my country, I am doing multiple installations each quarter.


HANA offers native System Replication, which can be classified as a basic, no automated high availability option. Generally, a HANADB setup consist of two nodes and sync replication.

Some customers want to be on the safer side and a third tier. This extra tier is mostly in another site, acting like a disaster site with async replication.

Examples that I saw, and read includes configuration but no real life scenarios. Just install, setup stop HANA Database. It is even not a real crash. I need to break things:) See them working!

It is not enough for me; I need to see (with sample data) that the data is replicated. I need to see my data on the second node after I crash the first node.

This video blog is my HANA crash and check for data integrity adventure.



Part I

SAP HANA System Replication MultiTier Setup, Crash, Failover and Failback setup



I like pacemaker, but I have very bad memories with my HANADB Clusters on Suse. Now, with stable versions, both HANADB resource agents and SuSE ocf scripts, it offers an acceptable, reliable solution for HA.

I could not find any examples with multitier cluster configurations, so did it for myself.

It is a 2 Node cluster setup with additional disaster site. (async replication). This is a typical setup with enterprise customers, which have multiple data centres and care for high availability targets.

Be careful with this setup, it is rather tricky.
