SAP HANA Deployment Types

There are lots of SAP HANA deployment types. What are those types? So we will discuss the following information about the types of deployment of SAP HANA.

Introducing SAP HANA Deployment Types

Here are the following types of SAP HANA Deployment:

  • SAP HANA in the Cloud
  • SAP HANA on Premise

If SAP HANA is installed in the cloud, that is, the data center of a cloud service provider, then it is called SAP HANA in the cloud. 

The following are the advantages of SAP HANA in the cloud. There are no costs related to hardware, software, and infrastructure required for SAP HANA deployment. 

SAP HANA on-premise also has hardware, software, and infrastructure-related costs. That is significantly reduced by using SAP HANA in the cloud. 

So, there are cost advantages of using SAP HANA in the cloud. Cost savings can be used for other projects or other business purposes. 

Cost savings come from optimizing with cloud computing. Effective use of resources such as storage capacity and computing power can be made with cloud computing technology. 

Using this technology, it is possible to improve efficiency and reduce waste. So we can say that there are several benefits of using SAP HANA in the cloud.

How to deploy in-the-cloud SAP HANA? How does it work? Now we will discuss this topic. 

What Is A Private Cloud? 

A private cloud is a part of an IT infrastructure that is owned by an organization. Rather than shared with others or hosted by a third-party provider. 

We can deploy private clouds on dedicated hardware or virtual machines (VMs) running on physical hardware. That may also be shared by other users inside or outside an organization. 

So when we use private clouds, we have full control over them and we can manage them as per our requirements. Before deploying SAP HANA in the private clouds.

So you should take care of some prerequisites like data protection and security considerations. That you should think about before deploying SAP HANA on-premise or in the public or private clouds. 

You should also check if your environment meets these requirements. So that your deployment goes smoothly.

What Is A Disaster Recovery Plan? 

A disaster recovery plan is an action plan intended to minimize downtime from disasters within an organization. Or system something like a backup plan.

But it has more potential risks than backup plans. Because the disaster recovery plan covers both infrastructure and application risks.

So you should have a proper disaster recovery plan to reduce the risk of disasters. So that your systems are up and running in the event of any disaster.

Disaster recovery plans can help you face various types of risks. Including server risks, data center risks, and application risks. 

If you don’t have a proper disaster recovery plan in place. Then your business will suffer from the loss of data or downtime in the event of a disaster.

The following are some steps involved in creating a disaster recovery plan: 

  • Identify what might go wrong? Identify all possible threats that could affect SAP HANA components on-premise or in the cloud. 
  • Analyze potential impacts? Analyze potential impacts of each threat on your SAP HANA system and other IT systems. 
  • Define Recovery Time Objective? Define Recovery time objective for each component, for example, SAP HANA runtime system and SAP HANA database systems. 
  • Determine Recovery Point Objective? Determine the Recovery point objective for each component to determine how much data can be lost in case of a disaster. 
  • Know who will take action? Determine who will take action if a threat occurs and what they should do to restore your SAP HANA environment as quickly as possible. 
  • Maintain documentation? Maintain documentation on how to recover your SAP HANA environment should it become necessary to do so.
