NetApp snaps into SAP

February 18, 2009: NetApp has launched a new storage management solution for SAP environments, SnapManager 3.0.

It has achieved SAP certified integration with the SAP NetWeaver Application Server (SAP NetWeaver AS) component via the backup and restore tools from SAP (also known as BR*Tools). This integration enhances the ability to automate SAP data management tasks and the integration with NetApp Protection Manager allows storage administrators to set data protection workflow policies to simplify and standardise SAP backups, offering improved productivity and streamlined data protection.

NetApp SnapRestore and Snapshot technologies are utilised to quickly execute backups and allow for a database to be restored in a matter of seconds rather than hours.

“SnapManager 3.0 improves productivity and simplifies the protection and management of SAP data,” said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions Marketing for NetApp.

“By leveraging several unique NetApp technologies, like Snapshots, FlexClone, and Protection Manager, customers can simplify their backup and provisioning procedures, which substantially reduce IT costs while speeding up time to market.”
