Replication Strategies for SAP Based on the Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform
The mission-critical nature of SAP implementations implies that the primary mission of all SAP infrastructures is data availability. That means that the data must be available for business access 7x24xforever; however, it also means much more. Access to SAP data is often required for multiple uses simultaneously. One of the challenges that SAP administrators must meet is to satisfy those availability requirements without affecting the performance of the primary business process. Hitachi replication solutions provide effective and efficient solutions to meet those data availability requirements. They can be used to protect against data loss from failure within the infrastructure, user-introduced corruption and catastrophic failure of a data center.
