DATABASE LAYER The database layer consists of a central database system containing all of the data in the SAP R/3 System. It uses this information to choose an appropriate server when a user logs onto the system. Theoretically. DB2/400 (on AS/400). This layer is the interface between the SAP R/3 Systems and its users. For example. It passes requests from one application server to another within the system. the SAP R/3 System supports the following database systems from other suppliers: ADABAS D. and receives data from it. ORACLE and ORACLE Parallel Server. This means that not all application servers will provide the full range of services. The SAP R/3 Basic system is a multi-tier client/server system. SAP does not manufacture its own database. and the database itself.
