The right way to ensure the Availability of SAP environments starts with Veeam

When it comes to ensuring the Availability of SAP environments, enterprises need to ensure their expectations are met. Recently, I collaborated with a few of my peers and experts in the industry to provide detailed, technical information on ensuring the Availability of SAP environments with Veeam. If you have SAP, it’s an important part of your business, and ensuring its Availability goes without saying.

There are a number of key points covered in the mentioned paper, so I encourage you to have a look. Note that there are a few things to consider with SAP environments; mainly the SAP-specific tools (BRTools) such as BRRestore, BRBackup and BRArchive. The Veeam SAP whitepaper has a number of scripts you can use with BRBackup so you can provide additional application Availability. Many SAP environments that use Veeam may have a data flow much like the image below:

The BRTools provide a good data flow for application-specific data (from the database), but there are a number of extra considerations. For example, there are questions about the need for an image-based backup of the SAP environment, and many organizations have struggled with the decision to virtualize SAP.

The Veeam SAP whitepaper is an outstanding read to explore some additional capabilities that you may not even know you had when it comes to using Veeam Availability Suite for SAP environments. Simply virtualizing SAP is a difficult enough decision, however, by doing so there are some very compelling Veeam-specific capabilities that many organizations would indeed benefit greatly from.
