This pattern is a simple yet real-world example of deploying SAP BusinessObjects BI platform in a company's existing infrastructure. It is robust, scalable, and secure enough to handle a moderate number of user requests.
In our examples, all BI platform machines are running Red Hat Linux version 6.2 with all required patches. This pattern book is also applicable to SUSE.
We will use a number of machines in this pattern and examine the procedures required to set up the Linux pattern in detail from start to finish.
For an overview of the machines in this pattern, see Linux System Landscape Overview.
To follow the pattern, complete the tasks in the order shown in Linux Pattern Overview.
