Enterprise customers have identified SAP HANA as a key technology that will allow them to both boost performance and simplify their existing SAP environments. But even with SAP HANA, deploying and managing an SAP environment is not a trivial undertaking. SAP tends to have stringent performance, business continuity, and backup/recovery requirements.
Back and recovery, in particular, can be a grueling experience for SAP system administrators who have to spend considerable amounts of time and effort preping the environment and going through complicated procedures to ensure that the backup process is carried out with minimum disruption to the business and in accordance with best practices.
Pure Storage helps simplify the back up process for SAP HANA environments through our unique snapshot capabilities. Pure Storage snapshots are nearly instantaneous and highly space efficient, allowing system administrators to greatly speed up the backup/recovery process with minimal effect on production environments. If you would like to learn more about how to snapshot an SAP HANA database on a Pure Storage Flash Array, this short white paper will provide you with all the necessary details.
