HPE Serviceguard for Linux
How much does every minute of downtime cost your business?
HPE Serviceguard for Linux® (SGLX) is a High Availability (HA) and Disaster Recovery (DR) clustering solution that increases uptime for your critical applications by protecting them from a multitude of infrastructure and application faults across physical or virtual environments over any distance. It reduces the impact of unplanned downtime with no compromise on data integrity and performance. Furthermore, it helps achieve near zero planned downtime for maintenance.
- Improved disaster recovery for SAP HANA® across multiple tiers. Support for semi-automated recovery of scale-up and scale-out multi-target instances complementing SGLX automatic failover capabilities
- Improved RTO with faster SAP HANA database recovery: New capabilities to accelerate SAP HANA database recovery enabling faster resumption of service upon failure.
- Faster and more robust SAP HANA failure detection: Unique SQL probing-based monitoring at source for scale-up and scale-out HANA databases to discover hangs and failures undetected by standard tools.
- Easier manageability for SAP® landscapes: New capability to start and stop SAP workloads (such as SAP S/4HANA®, SAP HANA database and SAP NetWeaver®) from SGLX Manager GUI for maintenance scenarios.
- Leverage outstanding virtualization and application HA: Support for latest VMware vSphere 7.0 and SRM 8.3.
Support for new OS versions: SLES15 SP2, RHEL 8.2, 7.8 Oracle Linux 8.2(UEK6), 7.8(UEK5 & 6)
- Support for new ISV versions: HANA 2.0 SPS 05, SAP NetWeaver for Oracle 19c, SAP Sybase ASE 16 (RHEL 8 and SLES 15), IBM Db2 11.5, MS SQL Server 2019 on Linux 2019, EDB PPAS 11.x & 12.x.
Increase Application Uptime with Fast Failover and Data Integrity
HPE Serviceguard for Linux monitors the availability of critical resources and applications. It provides fast fail-over in the event of a failure, in as little as 4 seconds without compromising on data integrity.1
Monitors the availability of applications, services, databases, and platforms over distances, while protecting against outages and reducing downtime during planned maintenance windows.
Offers efficient fault-detection capabilities that automatically failover critical applications to safer nodes which resume normal operations with complete data integrity.
Delivers proven algorithms and superior arbitration mechanisms by providing high levels of availability, data integrity, and reliability.
Achieves higher uptime in virtual environments with application failovers rather than virtual machine restarts. HPE Serviceguard for Linux supports VMware®, Hyper-V, and KVM hypervisors.
Stay Available During Site Outages
HPE Serviceguard for Linux DR solution keeps your applications online even after the loss of a data center, over any distance with a choice of responses from fully automatic failover to push button recovery.
Features fully-automated recovery for complex, scale-out workloads, such as SAP HANA, using unique Site Aware Disaster Tolerant Architecture (SADTA) that provides robustness, resiliency, and availability for your applications and services.
Offers a suite of disaster recovery solutions for different choice points based on distance, data replication, Recovery Point Objective (RPO), and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) to fulfill a wide array of requirements.
Reduce capital expenditure with flexible deployment models that allow for optimization and consolidation of multiple primary workloads to minimally provisioned DR infrastructure.
Out-of-the-Box Solutions for SAP HANA, Oracle, and Other Enterprise Databases and Applications
HPE Serviceguard for Linux provides out-of-the-box integration for popular enterprise databases, business applications, and open source software. It provides intelligent, automatic, context-sensitive monitoring, recovery and fail-back operations that are aware of the internal application states.3
Greatly simplifies and accelerates the integration of complex applications into a standardized, proven framework. It reduces initial setup time from days to hours, resulting in 4x faster deployments.2
HPE SGLX offers out-of-the-box integrations for SAP HANA, SAP S/4 HANA, SAP NetWeaver, Oracle, SQL Server 2017 on Linux, IBM Db2, Sybase, and EnterpriseDB PPAS with continuous certifications and enhancements for newer versions of the applications.
HPE SGLX also offers integrations for open source software, such as Network File System (NFS), Apache, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Samba, Tomcat, and Sendmail, at no additional cost.
With the HPE SGLX GUI driven wizard, you can easily integrate other custom or ISV applications.
Near-Zero Downtime Maintenance, Easy Administration, and Improved Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
HPE Serviceguard for Linux offers Live Application Detach (LAD): a feature that allows you to do maintenance of the cluster infrastructure, including the heartbeat network, with near-zero downtime.4
Rolling upgrades enable the upgrade of infrastructure components, operating system, and applications with minimal downtime.
Intuitive Serviceguard Manager GUI allows you to visually configure, monitor, manage, and administer a cluster and its components. Color-coded icons and alerts help you identify and resolve issues quickly.
The GUI also offers workload-based flows that further simplify management and administration of SAP landscapes, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server 2017 on Linux deployments.
Optimize TCO with a choice to license HPE Serviceguard for Linux with 1-year, 3-year, and unlimited licensing options with easy upgrades across editions and terms.
 Failover recovery observed in Hewlett Packard Enterprise internal lab testing. The system was based on an HPE ProLiant DL560 Gen10 Server with Red Hat® Enterprise Linux 7.3 running HPE Serviceguard 12.10.00 Configuration dependent, excluding cluster reformation time.
 Based on Hewlett Packard Labs analysis that shows typical manual effort for integrating an Oracle database into a cluster requires 30 engineering days. With Oracle toolkit from Hewlett Package Enterprise, this integration is achieved in two engineering days or less.
 Based on Hewlett Packard Labs analysis while performing maintenance activities of the cluster including maintenance of heartbeat network, it used to be a common case where the application had to be brought down. However, with the LAD feature, the application downtime can be reduced to zero, even if the heartbeat network is maintained and the cluster is brought down.
 Based on failover recovery times observed in HPE Reference Architecture for Oracle Database on HPE Superdome Flex with HPE Serviceguard for Linux and Oracle Data Guard. http://h20195.www2.hpe.com/V2/GetDocument.aspx?docname=a50000280enw
