Disaster Tolerant HP AppSystems for SAP HANA are here: Ready for prime time.

By Doug Janes – HP Product Manager, SAP HANA


Back in October 2012 you may remember HP announced the industry’s first certified disaster tolerant solution for SAP HANA.


The solution provides the following major benefits:


  • Allows customers to host a second HANA system , at a separate location, that can take over for their production system in the event of a significant outage
  • Enables data replication for distances up to 50 kilometers or 30 miles to minimize the chance  of impact to the second HANA system in the event of a natural disaster  
  • Offers a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of near zero –in the event of a primary site failure, only  in-flight transactions would be lost when resuming operations at the secondary site  
  • Offers a Recovery Time Objective (RTO) that is less than one hour  – the standby system can be up and running very quickly without having to restore data  
  • Allows multiple use with the ‘dual purpose’ option – when customers don’t need the standby system to take over from the production system it can be used for test and development  

Disaster Tolerant   HP AppSystems for SAP HANA are important as they protect customers’ mission critical data and ensure business continuity even in the event of a power failure or natural disaster.   


Customers have been abundantly clear about their need for a disaster tolerant solution.  Since October 2012,   HP’s early shipment program for pilot customers has been overwhelmed by demand, as customers have become aware of the benefits of Disaster Tolerant HP AppSystems for SAP HANA and witnessed them in practice when testing in their own environments.


Rodolfo Hugo Moreno, the Enterprise Architect Manager at one of our customers, Coca-Cola FEMSA, had this to say:


“We rely on HP AppSystems for SAP HANA to process massive amounts of data that are critical to our everyday business operations. Even a few minutes of downtime would be extremely costly. We’re confident that HP’s new Disaster-Tolerant Solution for SAP HANA will ensure continuous data availability and protect our business from crippling losses.”


That’s why today we’re delighted to announce general availability of Disaster Tolerant   HP AppSystems for SAP HANA beginning on 8th April, which means all HP customers will be able to capitalize on a simplified ordering and implementation process.


Please take a look at the materials below to find out more about the solution and speak to your account management team today to prepare to place your order.
