 This Building Block Variant...

... belongs to Working Area:   Unspecified
... is an implementation of Building Block Type:  
... is intended for use in Environment:  


Some SAP Database capabilities are undesirable for use in the case of ArchiSurance.

Business purpose

Provision of a logic data storage and retrieval facility for SAP applications.

Characteristics & indications of usage

The SAP database is a specialization of the SAP application server with either an ABAP and/or JAVA kernel. Each kernel can have its own database or share the database.


When designing a facility to implement this function, inclusion of all the following elements is prescribed; either mandatory, optional or explicitly forbidden:

Element Type Prescribed Rationale
EL.Database Prescription Oracle Click to create! Click to create! mandatory Any Oracle database management system that is compliant to the SAP Product Availability Matrix. (The current compliant version is Oracle 10).
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (SmartHat) mandatory This Linux-build is compliant to the SAP Product Availability Matrix and offers a low-cost, maintainable and stable server platform.
SNMP version 2 prohibited This version of SNMPv2 is not suitable to handle all Oracle 10 SNMP traps.
SAP Database Guideline mandatory The SAP Database Management implementation offers features which use is undesirable in the ArchiSurance situation.

Quality Requirements

When a facility is designed according to this architectural recipe, it must/will satisfy the following Quality Requirements. This is the responsibility of the infrastructure designer. Note that because of the specified Elements (either the mandatory Elements and any applied optional Elements), some of these Requirements might automatically be satisfied.

QA Group Quality Attribute Value
Flexibility Adaptability HSC
Scalability out
Maintainability Manageability Medium
Accountability PP
