Figure 4: Dynamic use of DR for Non-prod using PMEM
DR DB can remain active and read only all the time without consuming too much DRAM.
FluidIT optimizes HANA sizing with this dynamic resource management. The sizing can be optimized to a great extent with Disaster recovery (DR) or high availability (HA) hardware for non-production usage. DR or HA environment can be configured to accommodate otherwise idle instances, and most of the DRAM can be used by non-production instances. In case of a failover, ServiceTheatre DRM workflow automatically reassigns the resources to active instances, re-optimizing non-production workload.
4) Maximized availability
FluidIT architecture is designed with the key goal of minimizing services downtime, and not just maintaining server uptime. SAP HANA FluidIT reference architecture extensively uses Intel Optane Persistent Memory to reduce HANA startup time by more than 90%. Persistent Memory, as the name suggests, persists across reboot and power recycles, ensuring all the tables are still available in memory during the next system startup with only the Delta fragment needing uploading from the disks. The FluidIT AIOPS toolset proactively monitors system performance and acts autonomously through the ServiceTheatre, in case of system uptime being impacted. For e.g., auto-scaling a load balanced application cluster with additional nodes to take care of additional loads. FluidIT architecture allows for independent patching of different components like operating system, application binaries or hardware firmware. ServiceTheatre leverages this feature to patch systems using snapshots and minimizes downtime on running applications.
