Productive SAP on Linux

Another alternative to operating system failover would be using Oracle
Parallel Server for failover (not load balancing).  OPS comes with the
Oracle runtime license when purchased with R/3, and you can use it such that
the app servers always hit one server unless it goes down, in which case
they have a parameter for a designated failover server.  In this case, that
failover server is always running Oracle, so there's no failover time
involved, so R/3 never actually goes down in the even the primary box dies.
We're currently testing this for our Tru64 production environment, with
plans to go to full-blown load balancing in Oracle 9i.

Hmm. There is no info about Oracle support on

Why ? :)
