Productive SAP on Linux

That is not correct - SAP does support it (I have that word straight from
the Oracle competency center at SAP).  There are currently no customers
running OPS under 4.X, only 3.X, but SAP will in fact support it under 4.X,
and the competency center has offered to work directly with us on this.

The question we are trying to decide now is whether to go ahead and
implement this, or to wait until SAP supports 9i Real Application Clusters.
RAC sounds much better, but we're not sure of the stability of it yet, or
when SAP will support it.

Hi,
as far as I know SAP doesn't support such configuration with OPS, even not
for HA purpose. What is the position of the SAP LINUX LAB?

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
http://oss.sgi.com/projects/failsafe/

Why ? :)
