Utilizing IBM XIV Storage System Snapshot Technology in SAP Environments
As companies drive more and more of their business processes with SAP applications, supporting infrastructure environments are growing and increasing in complexity. These companies require their operations to be available 24/7 as they increasingly globalize and centralize their IT environment. At the same time, they are demanding more and more efficient and secure backups to further protect their data. Customers also look for ways to efficiently provision new SAP systems and clone existing systems according to SAP best practice requirements.
