SAP HANA Data Protection: Predictability in a world filled with uncertainties

By Srikanth Venkataseshu, Senior Marketing Manager, Backup, Recovery and Archive Solutions, HP Storage   @srikseshu



For most customers, the journey for SAP HANA usually starts with a sidecar implementation, then graduates to Business Warehouse (BW) workloads, before eventually moving to ERP, CRM applications—or, in other words, Suite on HANA (S/4 HANA).


HP has made strategic investment in HANA and we have several HANA-optimized Converged System appliances to help accelerate time-to-deployment of these systems along with best practices and years of expertise designing and deploying these systems. And at SAPPHIRE in May, we announced modern data protection for SAP HANA with the introduction of new HP StoreOnce plug-in for SAP HANA. The plug-in is a HANA BackInt agent installed directly on SAP HANA nodes which enables direct streaming backups to StoreOnce deduplication appliance. This BURA Sunday, I’m breaking down the benefits of StoreOnce plug-in.

Enhancements to HP StoreOnce announced at HP Discover

The last few days at Discover were incredibly busy.  I think I was involved in creating 6 videos and a couple of podcasts.  I didn't get to tell you about the news with HP StoreOnce so while I have a short layover at SFO on my way home from Frankfurt, here are a couple of videos that give you the story.

Storage strategy focus with HP Storage chief and Intel

P1100287sm.jpgI have two things to share with you today.  In our Blogger Lounge at HP Discover, the invited bloggers have many opportunities to hear from HP executives and technical experts in our "coffee talks".  We held a coffee talk with the David Scott, Sr. VP and GM of HP Storage and Milan Shetti, CTO of HP Storage.  David and Milan spent about an hour with the bloggers answering their questions.

HP StoreOnce B6200 high availability podcast

Moon1 sm.jpgOne of the big announcements HP had at HP Discover was the new StoreOnce B6200.  I've had a few blog posts talking about the StoreOnce announcement and if you haven't checked them out, I'd highly encourage you to do that.  I think the advances we've made with the product over the last couple of years should make it a product on the top of anyone's enterprise-class disk-based backup solution list.


Today I have a podcast focusing on the high availability features built into the B6200, the most unique of which is Autonomic Failover.  As I understand it, the market leader EMC Data Domain does have a dual controller appliance but if a controller fails, the backup fails.  As you'll hear in the podcast, the B6200 can failover backup jobs to another node in the B6200.


I also got this cool picture of the moon tonight - but you'll have to go to the blog post to get that story and to hear or download the podcast. 

StoreOnce and EMC Data Domain performance flap

In today's post, I want to address the flap that EMC created last week questioning whether or not the HP StoreOnce B6200 is a single system.  Here's a podcast of my thoughts here (which you can also read by clicking through to the blog post).
