Run Your SAP HANA on Cloud

Migrate to HANA in the cloud and S4/HANA to accelerate business transformation.

  • Customer Challenges Customer Challenges

    Customers moving to the cloud face challenges adapting their operations to multiple, cloud specific and proprietary features cloud infrastructure provides.

    While cloud provides promising scalability, and fast deployment, the user is responsible for daily operations and implementing SAP specific project workflows. All-in-all its Infrastructure as a Service. While cloud may be able to fulfill the promise to reduce TCO and speed up initial deployment, SAP customers know that the real cost savings do not come through infrastructure alone, but through accelerating projects, simplifying operations, and well designed application integration.


    Organizations running SAP HANA in the cloud benefit from cloud elasticity, and access to cloud services. However, it requires enterprise grade storage and data management to ensure such critical applications are always on and performing properly.

  • ic-challenge-1 Customer Challenges

    Organizations want to migrate SAP to the cloud to reduce infrastructure they run, and take advantage of cloud scale. However, they do not want to take the time to refactor the applications, and cannot sacrifice availability or performance. In addition, every SAP implementation requires shared files for transports, binary files, and interfaces.

Simplify Your SAP Shared Files Deployment
in the Public Cloud

Take advantage of enterprise grade, highly available shared file systems to simplify your SAP
deployments and optimize your operations.

  • ic-challenge-1 Customer Challenges

    Every SAP system landscape has the need for a shared file system, /usr/sap/trans, sapmnt or /hana/shared to name a few. Not all public clouds offer a simple to use, yet powerful, enterprise grade filesystem, that’s suitable for SAP applications. Often customers are forced to build linux based NFS servers to provision their own file services, adding additional resources and maintenance costs to increase their TCO.

Leverage the Cloud for Development and Test Systems

Deploy a hybrid cloud to accelerate application development

  • ic-challenge-1 Customer Challenges

    Large scale SAP projects typically require complex test landscapes, and multiple project teams need sandbox or development systems.

    Those demands requires additional infrastructure and mechanisms to improve deployment, and SAP system copy procedures to adapt to this highly demanding environment.

    In addition, many SAP customers need an infrastructure refresh to suppor migration tests required to validate and adapt new SAP applications such as when switching from AnyDB to SAP HANA based SAP solutions. Internal IT is often overwhelmed with these demanding infrastructure requests.

Leverage the Cloud For Disaster Recovery

Deploy a hybrid cloud to accelerate application development and improve disaster recovery

  • ic-challenge-1 Customer Challenges

    Organizations want to leverage the elasticity and consumption based model of cloud to cost effectively provide a disaster recovery location that does not require ongoing management of the infrastructure. The challenge customers face is being able to continue operations in the cloud in case of a disaster with similar performance and minimal data loss and downtime. For most of the customers running DR in the cloud means replication on the application level.

  • ic-solution-1 Solution
    • Customers using NetApp on prem have the additional option to utilize storage replication to Cloud Volumes ONTAP for disaster recovery avoiding application servers permanently allocated for application level replication.
    • Depending on the performance requirements in case of a disaster failover, the systems can be either started on CVO or migrated to high performance CVS/ANF using cloud internal networking.
    • NetApp Cloning technologies can be used to efficiently test DR scenarios without influencing or interrupting the replication ensuring that the defined Recover Point Objective (RPO) can be met.
  • ic-results-1 Results with Cloud Solutions for SAP
    • Cost efficient storage based replication from on-premises for DR avoiding additional application servers in the cloud
    • Efficient DR testing using cloning technology
