SAP NetWeaver

System Deployment

System deployment

Deploying a SAP NetWeaver-based system in Azure, will have the same options as on-premises:

A standalone installation, where the database, central services instance, and the dialog instance are kept on the same host

A distributed installation, where each component is installed on separate VMs

A highly available installation, which prevents unplanned downtime due to redundancy of components


Standalone installation

Keeping all SAP components on a single VM

Installation of two-tier system is easy but difficult to scale

Performance of the system is limited by single virtual machine size

Distributed installation


3-Tier configuration

Database on HA
