SAP HANA MULTIPLE HOST
A multiple-host system is a system with more than one host, which can be configured as active worker hosts
or idle standby hosts. The server software is based on a flexible architecture that enables a distributed
installation. This means that load can be balanced between different hosts. The server software has to be
installed in a shared file system. This file system has to be mounted by all hosts that are part of the system.
HANA Host Types
When configuring a multiple-host system, the additional hosts must be defined as worker hosts or standby
hosts (worker is default).
Worker machines process data.
Standby machines do not handle any processing and
instead just wait to take over processes in the case of worker machine failure.
