Increase Application Uptime with Fast Failover and Data Integrity
HPE SGLX monitors the availability of critical resources and applications. It provides fast fail-over in the event of a failure, in as little as four seconds without compromising on data integrity.1
It 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 safe nodes, resuming normal operations with assured data integrity. Delivers proven algorithms and superior arbitration mechanisms providing high levels of availability, data integrity and reliability.
Enables highly available environments without shared storage for applications such as SAP S4/HANA and NFS.
Achieves higher uptime in virtual environments with application failovers rather than virtual machine restarts. HPE SGLX supports VMware®, Hyper-V, and KVM hypervisors.
Stay Available During Site Outages
HPE SGLX 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.
It 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.
It offers a suite of DR 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.
Reduces 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 SGLX Premium for SAP HANA is the first fully automatic HA and DR solution that leverages HANA Multitarget System Replication to provide unattended recovery across multiple HANA tiers enabling businesses to achieve higher uptime and protect critical applications from complete site failures.
HPE SGLX 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.2
It 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.3
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 Postgress Advanced Sever with near-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 SGLX offers Live Application Detach (LAD): a feature that allows you to maintain 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.
It improves TCO by enabling enterprise-grade HA solutions on cost-effective storage architectures with no dependence on traditional SAN.
It helps optimize TCO with a choice to license HPE Serviceguard for Linux with 1-year, 3-year, 5-year and unlimited licensing options with easy upgrades across editions and terms.
Intuitive HPE Serviceguard Manager GUI allows you to visually monitor, manage, and administer a cluster. Workload-based flows simplify the management and administration of critical landscapes such as SAP® and Oracle. Color-coded icons and alerts help you identify and resolve issues quickly.
1 Failover recovery observed in HPE internal lab testing. The system was based on an HPE ProLiant DL560 Gen10 server with RHEL 7.3 running HPE Serviceguard 12.10.00 configuration dependent, excluding cluster reformation time.
2 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.
3 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.
