This document describes a solution for Business Continuity for SAP on IBM Z, which provides the means for fully automating the management of all SAP components and related products running on z/OS®, AIX®, Linux®, or Windows. The automation software monitors all resources and controls the restart, or takeover of failing components, or both, thereby ensuring a high and almost continuous availability of the SAP system. Therefore, emphasis in this document is put on solutions for high availability as this is the most important aspect of business continuity, besides the availability of Db2® data.

The IBM Documentation edition of “Business Continuity for SAP on IBM Z” is based on IBM Z System Automation 4.2 and 4.3 and the solution supports Db2 13 for z/OS.
