SEP sesam renews certification for SAP HANA

The well respected backup solution for SAP HANA from SEP AG known as SEP sesam has had it’s certification renewed by SAP. As both SAP HANA and SEP sesam are constantly being updated this provides customers with the assurance that SEP is up-to-date and meeting all SAP certification requirements.

SAP customers and partners are well aware of the importance of using a backup solution that is certified by SAP - only certified solutions guarantee that SAP support will always be available.

SAP applications are often business critical and smooth recovery from disaster is critical to the business.

The risk from human error continues and the risk from ransomware and malware continues to rise.

Because of the critical nature of SAP systems to businesses High Availability (HA) solutions such as mirroring are popular. But it is important to understand that although these methods can assist for events like hardware failure they do not replace backup, because infected and corrupted data is simply replicated in real time. So a certified backup solution is also required, and with the rise of ransomware it is arguably more important than replication.

SEP sesam is certified for SAP HANA on both Intel and POWER platforms and also offers support for SAP NetWeaver, SAP ASE, SAP Business One and SAP MaxDB.

Smart system administrators know that SEP sesam is not just a solution for protection of SAP. SEP sesam secures a large range of platforms, applications and databases in heterogeneous environments simplifying backup infrastructure. It also includes broad hypervisor support: VMware (vSphere), Hyper-V, Citrix Hypervisor (XenServer), XCP-ng, Red Hat Virtualization (RHV/RHEV), Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager (OLVM), KVM QEMU, OpenNebula, Proxmox and Nutanix AHV.
