Your data is a commodity. It’s the grease that smooths digital pathways. It’s the insights that refine products and services. It’s also the very expensive and damning mistake if it’s lost or stolen. For it is data that’s layered with legislative protections – there are now more than 150 worldwide on a par with, or close to, the GDPR – and with intellectual property and its loss can impact your reputation and bottom line. Which is why data recovery is a critical operational point that every organisation should be prepared for, and invested into.
Enter SAP HANA data recovery. The SAP HANA database is designed to be both stable and powerful, and to offer you a huge sense of relief when the worst happens. And it will. Failure, loss and human error are inevitable which is why faith must be placed into the right technology and processes to ensure that these issues don’t become catastrophes.
The SAP HANA platform is fully capable of providing your business with robust data recovery, but you have to plan for it. You need to create a process and a system that takes the transactional functionality of SAP S/4HANA and data in-memory into account to ensure that data isn’t lost permanently.
Embedding data recoverability
As SAP points out, SAP HANA creates regular save points that mitigate a significant percentage of the risk of data loss – these are bolstered by logs that are written for any change in data. This log data is then also saved to the disk after every transaction commit, and every one of these steps ensures database consistency.
However, data recovery is only one part of the equation. You also need to ensure that your systems tick the box of availability. You need your data to be recovered, but you also need your business to remain operational in the event of a disaster and while the data is being recovered. To achieve this, you need to bed down both disaster recovery and high availability capabilities into your SAP S/4HANA platform and implementation. These are non-negotiable, especially for organisations that operate within high-risk areas, or need to remain operational in all conditions.
Ensuring that your SAP S/4HANA backup is correctly managed and implemented, you need to work with a partner that can provide you with a clear roadmap to recovery, availability and disaster management. This means that every part of the process, from backup planning to restoration to availability has to be considered.
