Only recently reported Bitkom Record losses of 102.9 billion euros due to "sabotage, data theft or espionage." But not only criminal attacks can disrupt system operations and result in data loss: Failures failures somewhere in the IT infrastructure can quickly bring a complex construct of technical and economic interdependencies into an imbalance. This requires a cross-platform solution for the control, backup, recovery and protection of all data. If all workloads are comprehensively secured they can be quickly restored in the event of failure, attack, loss or theft. recovery in the event of an outage, attack, loss or theft.

Uninterrupted access to applications access to applications such as SAP HANA is business-critical for companies, as this database platform processes parallel transactions and analytics for many workloads such as SAP S/4 HANA, SAP BW Data Warehouse and SAP Business ONE. Native SAP functionality is essential for smooth operations, as is the ability to run operation, as is the ability to natively back up workloads and restore them to a certain restore to a specific state. With the Veeam Plug-in for SAP HANA - part of the part of the Veeam Availability Suite and SAP-certified - enables organizations to native SAP HANA backup seamlessly into Veeam Backup & Replication, enabling and thus uniformly manage and control their data backup and recovery processes. and control their backup and recovery processes. Even "classic" SAP environments running on Oracle or MS SQL are also supported. This integration also simplifies operation and reduces the administration effort.

Availability through uniform data management

More and more Business processes are digitalized end-to-end and run across multiple operating operating platforms, i.e., a mix of on-premises, virtualized and physical physical systems, software-as-a-service or cloud. Business continuity can can only be ensured if data can flow securely into the IT infrastructures at all times. Hybrid cloud infrastructures and digitization require a new data management strategy that looks at the entire lifecycle of the data and lifecycle of the data and combines traditional disciplines such as backup and recovery, data and recovery, data protection and data security across the entire infrastructure.

The Veeam Cloud Data Management Platform provides the foundation to organize, unify and control data management and controls in data management can be organized, standardized and automated. and automate. The special requirements of an SAP environment are taken into environment, for example with the Veeam Scale-Out Backup Repository (SOBR). multiple repository servers can be used in parallel to improve the performance of backup and recovery processes. backup and recovery processes and to scale across multiple storage systems. across multiple storage systems. SAP administrators retain control over backup and recovery processes at all times. over backup and recovery processes at all times. In disaster recovery processes are also supported for applications such as SAP S/4 HANA, SAP BW Data Warehouse and SAP Business ONE.

On the basis of this integration platform, the entire data protection can be consolidated in one infrastructure, whether for physical, virtual or cloud-based workloads. Different storage locations - for example on-premises or cloud storage - are centrally managed users have access to all data and applications at all times. Integrated monitoring and predictive analytics enable resource optimization, capacity planning and preventive management to avoid operational disruptions. prevents operational disruptions. This gives IT departments a holistic view of data usage, operations and data usage, operations and performance issues.
