SAP provides a range of enterprise software applications and business solutions to manage and run the complete business of a company. Companies that have deployed such products depend on information and processes managed by SAP solutions, and continuous availability of the SAP system is essential. An integrated architecture of VMware Site Recovery Manager with NetApp storage and data management solutions provides an effective Disaster Recovery (DR) solution to address these business continuity requirements. This paper documents the configuration and validation of an SAP DR architecture using Site Recovery Manager and NetApp storage and tools. The infrastructure was installed and verified at the SAP Co-Innovation Lab (COIL) in Palo Alto, CA and was jointly deployed by NetApp, SAP and VMware staff.
