Why a certified backup solution?
SAP applications contain business-critical data, which is the heart of the company. SAP applications are used in many different ways and must be secured, because there are many sources of error that can lead to disaster. Business continuity must be guaranteed. There are many logical errors, such as ransomware attacks, human mistakes etc.. Backups are important. High Availability (HA) solutions like mirroring, etc., cannot help in such cases, because the error is only replicated and it is not possible to go back to the non-corrupted state. Encryption Trojans, for example, infect file systems with no noticeable effect on the user and only encrypt the infected data after weeks at a stroke. Therefore, in the case of recovery, it has to be possible to access the data stock before. This only works with the data backup.
It is very important that the backup solution is certified for SAP applications, because only a SAP-certified backup solution guarantees that SAP support can be used at all times and that business-critical SAP applications can work, be backed up and restored smoothly. SEP sesam also offers that the SAP backup solution is integrated into the company-wide data backup solution, because this way everything is all-in-one, easy to manage and requires less training. The SEP backup solution backs up a variety of platforms, applications and databases as well as heterogeneous environments. Consistent backup and recovery of virtual and physical environments, databases and applications is guaranteed and is performed according to the manufacturer's specifications. Also data backup for cloud usage is supported.
