Sungard Availability Services® Introduces Cloud-Based Recovery for SAP HANA to Allow More Businesses to Reap the Benefits of Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery

Sungard Availability Services® introduced Cloud-Based Recovery for SAP HANA to allow more businesses to reap the benefits of cloud-based disaster recovery (DR). For the first time, organizations with on-premise SAP HANA environments can leverage Sungard AS virtualized SAP HANA servers as part of a comprehensive cloud-based DR strategy. This solution provides replication and recovery of SAP HANA production environments deployed on x86 SAP HANA servers with Tailored Datacenter Integration (TDI). Sungard Availability Services Cloud-Based Recovery for SAP HANA allows customers to reduce business risk by protecting SAP HANA-based applications with a pre-engineered, flexible, and service level agreement (SLA)-protected DR solution. Benefits of this new service include: support for SAP HANA that can grow as business grows, with configurable storage-based replication for HANA databases as well as well other supporting SAP system resources; financial flexibility through OPEX spending rather than CAPEX for the HANA recovery infrastructure, plus flexibility to add capacity when needed without asset buy-outs or write-offs; meaningful reductions in total cost of ownership through the use of cloud-based recovery assets instead of internally owned and managed secondary site facilities, recovery infrastructure and day-to-day environments and replication; flexible application recoverability through the use of data journaling, allowing selectable point-in-time recovery for better application consistency management when recovering multiple system environments; environment protection assurance with recovery time SLAs and configurable recovery points. This is backed by annual testing that doesn't impact SAP HANA production or development environment operations as the SAP HANA environment continues to replicate during testing; support beyond SAP HANA with an extensive portfolio of both managed services and recovery services that can be engineered and delivered as a total solution set with single vendor simplicity. Sungard Availability Services Cloud-Based Recovery for SAP HANA supports SAP S/4HANA, SAP Suite on HANA (SoH), SAP Business Warehouse (BW), and other SAP HANA-based applications deployed with EMC2 storage arrays, with additional storage vendor configurations to be added over time. The service uses asynchronous replication to seed and maintain the customer's SAP HANA production data within a hardened secondary site. SAP HANA cloud-based resources are provisioned at the time of test and time of disaster, eliminating the need to dedicate SAP HANA production servers at the recovery site. This also provides high levels of flexibility, as the secondary SAP HANA database and application servers are cloud-based and configurable to accommodate production site changes without upfront capital investment. Cloud-Based Recovery for SAP HANA is one of several SAP services offered by Sungard AS, complementing a fully managed SAP hosting capability. This capability includes a virtualized SAP HANA cloud platform with 99.95% availability.
