When you’re preparing to install dynamic tiering, make sure to review the hardware and software requirements so you can plan your system accordingly.
Dynamic tiering SP 11 supports the following operating systems:
Operating Systems on Intel-based hardware platforms:
- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 SP2, SP3
- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 12
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.5 or higher
Operating Systems on IBM Power system platform:
- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 SP4 for IBM Power
However, dynamic tiering needs to be installed on the same operating system as HANA. For example, you can’t have HANA running on SLES and dynamic tiering on RHEL, even though both are supported.
Dynamic Tiering doesn’t have any specific hardware requirements. However, if you want to add a standby host, it needs to have the same hardware layout as the worker host that it’s providing failover support for.
