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.
