The first stage of Compaq?s thrust into Microsoft?s Wolfpack strategy has arrived with a demonstration of failover facilities for SAP?s R/3 v3.0e systems.
Compaq and SAP demonstrated the facilities of the preliminary extensions to Wolfpack using two Compaq Proliant 2500 servers at a technical education conference in Los Angeles last week.
Two servers running shared SCSI storage under Windows NT were run in tandem with the extensions and then one of the machines was turned off. According to Compaq, that automatically activated the cluster failover software and after a minute the R/3 application ran again on the remaining server.
Compaq has an intimate relationship with Microsoft on its future clustering strategy and wants to be one of the first to introduce systems in the first half of next year.
