ACTIFIO TRANSFORMS SAP DATA PROTECTION & AVAILABILITY
SAP applications are the core of many companies’ business information systems. Protecting this data and making it accessible whenever and wherever needed has traditionally been complex and expensive.
Actifio provides a comprehensive copy data management solution that extends the value of SAP, provides enhanced protection of SAP data, and makes that data available for a variety of use cases without taxing limited infrastructure.
Whether you need a better way to backup your SAP data or applications to protect your data, or need a more efficient means to provision data and extend environments for development and test data management, Actifio can help.
HOW ACTIFIO & SAP WORK TOGETHER
Actifio ingests SAP data to create a golden copy, updates it incrementally with changed blocks, and maintains it in an incremental-forever architecture. Actifio captures application consistent data from SAP Databases, SAP Certified Solution Databases, and SAP Business Applications whether they reside on physical systems or on MS Hyper-V or VMware virtual machines.
Once a golden image is captured, this image can be in a ready-state for immediate use, de-duplicated for long term retention, or sent to a remote location for disaster recovery purposes.
BENEFITS OF USING ACTIFIO FOR SAP
Actifio rapidly and efficiently mounts instant virtual copies for SAP data recovery, application testing or development without impacting production.
Actifio LiveCloneTM enables data to be updated automatically from production in a space efficient manner, allowing development and test to work with near real time data over the lifecycle of the project.
Actifio Workflows using LiveCloneTM can be used to rapidly feed data to masking and sub-setting processes with push-button automation.
Actifio’s robust local/remote site synchronization makes it easy to support geographically distributed development teams and ensure they have the data they need to be effective.
Global Deduplication and Compression: The captured change blocks are constantly evaluated against the global dedup engine, to eliminate data movement and storage of non-unique blocks.
RESTful API: Programmatic control and extension is fulfilled via RESTful API, which opens the power of Actifio Virtual Data Pipeline (VDP) platform to service providers and other management tools.
