Pure Storage announces the launch of Cloud Block Store for Amazon Web Services (AWS), which offers a way for Pure Storage platforms to be extended into the cloud. I would like to demonstrate how easily we can migrate your on-premises SAP HANA single node instance to AWS, using Pure Storage FlashArray data services and Cloud Block Store for AWS.
SAP HANA, once migrated to AWS, can be used as a Dev/Test system or for running Analytics. This is due to the unique nature of SAP HANA’s column tables, which are fine-tuned for OLTP workloads as well as for OLAP or Analytics workloads.
The demo involves using FlashArray data services (asynchronous replication) from an on-premises SAP HANA database running on a Pure Storage FlashArray//M20 host in Equinix, to Cloud Block Store. Once the database volume is replicated, we can bring up an SAP HANA instance running on an Amazon EC2 instance.
Below is the architecture diagram of the demo.
Here we have an SAP HANA system running on-premises which we are planning to migrate to AWS. One of the column tables in the SAP HANA on-prem system is updated by a Python application connected using a python database API. This python application is inserting new records to the SAP HANA.
The following steps are performed on-premises:
The following steps are performed on AWS:
