Protecting mission-critical business applications running on the SAP HANA platform, like S/4HANA and BW/4HANA, means securing the highest possible resiliency to ensure business operations do not stop in the event of a disaster – either localized or site-wide.


Using SAP HANA in a tailored data center (TDI) deployment gives customers the flexibility to utilize different strategies to maintain business continuity, and, while SAP HANA provides its own capability for backups and disaster recovery using HANA system replication, there is another route that is significantly more cost efficient, easy to scale, and simple to maintain and implement.

The focus of this paper will be to discuss a new Pure Storage® solution for SAP HANA® Storage Replication, Purity ActiveCluster. All Pure Storage FlashArrays are SAP-certified enterprise storage arrays and support both single-host (scale-up) and multi-host (scale-out) SAP HANA systems in TDI deployments.

This paper is a guide to using Pure Storage ActiveCluster in an SAP HANA environment. It is intended for storage, system, network, SAP HANA Basis administrator, or other administrators who plan to implement Pure Storage FlashArray ActiveCluster with SAP HANA. A working knowledge of SAP HANA, Linux, server, storage, and networks is assumed but is not a prerequisite to read this document. The paper guides Pure Storage customers interested in utilizing HANA Storage Replication in their environment. Readers should be knowledgable with SAP HANA and Pure Storage products.
