EMC Data Domain Boost for SAP and SAP HANA enables faster, more efficient backup and provides SAP application owners with complete control of backup and recovery.
Faster, More Efficient Backup
Data Domain Boost for SAP and SAP HANA distributes parts of the deduplication process to the SAP application server, enabling client-side deduplication so only unique data is sent from the server to the EMC Data Domain system. This speeds backup performance by 50 percent, reduces backup impact on the server by 20 to 40 percent, and reduces network bandwidth requirements by up to 80 to 99 percent.
Complete Application Owner Control
Data Domain Boost seamlessly integrates with SAP via BR*Tools and with SAP HANA via SAP HANA Studio. With Data Domain Boost for SAP and SAP HANA, application owners access the Data Domain system directly through their native backup utilities. Since no additional backup application is required, application owners keep complete control of SAP backup and recovery.
Advanced Load-Balancing and Failover
Data Domain Boost aggregates network links on the Data Domain system into a single group so multiple links appear as one to the SAP server. The Data Domain system then transparently balances the backup load between links in the group. In addition, the automatic link failover mechanism keeps backup systems operational in case of temporary network glitches.
