Who offers the 1st SAP certified disaster-tolerant solution for SAP HANA? Why HP of course!

By Jodie Jordanger - HP Converged Application Systems Marketing


Recently we highlighted the introduction of the first, SAP certified, disaster tolerant SAP HANA system –the HP AppSystem for SAP HANA.  We now have a video available which gives a lot more detail on the solution.



We have summarised some of the key points below.


With SAP HANA, customers already get significant benefits including:

  • Reduced total cost of ownership
  • Minimized data quality issues
  • Reduced overhead to synchronize data across multiple databases

In addition, disaster tolerance is extremely important for an enterprise class database and application platform, as it increases the need for a robust architecture.  HP Disaster Tolerance for SAP HANA offers a metropolitan area solution that supports high availability within a single data center including semi-automated failover to a secondary data center to protect against issues such as power failures.


The HP solution is based on Continuous Access, which is a feature of the HP P6000 series Enterprise Virtual Array.  Since the state of the databases at the primary and secondary sites is identical, this solution offers the highest level of disaster tolerance with:

  • a recovery point objective of zero – essentially, only the in-flight transactions would be lost in the event of a failure
  • a low recovery time objective – essentially the time for a system administrator to declare a failure and execute a normal boot up.

With HP’s first-to-be-certified Disaster Tolerance solution for SAP HANA, you can use HANA to:

  • Increase the speed and responsiveness of your IT organization
  • Drive efficiency and innovation in your business
  • Trust even your most mission critical application to HANA.
