When very large databases are mentioned, one generally thinks of video servers, document servers, etc. However classical commercial applications, such as accounting or logistics also generate enormous ammounts of data when several thousand end users are accessing a central database. Since mission critical applications are involved here, such databases have to satisfy high demands regarding administration, throughput and reliability. The presentation focuses on these aspects from the SAP point of view.
