Veeam Plug-in for SAP HANA supports business growth

BAAR, Switzerland – January 31, 2020 — / — Veeam® Software, the leader in Backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management™, today announced that Isuzu Motors South Africa (IMSAF) replaced legacy backup with Veeam Backup & Replication™ to protect revenue streams. Veeam accomplishes this by recovering SAP® 99% faster than legacy backup (in minutes, not hours or days), strengthening the company’s business continuity (BC) and disaster recovery (DR) strategy with first-ever replication, failover and failback, and supporting compliance with the Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act.

“Veeam protects our revenue streams by radically reducing the risk of downtime,” said Loren Meyer, CIO, IMSAF. “That means we always have access to the critical SAP data that is integral to our production facilities, enabling bakkies (small pick-up trucks) and trucks to be sold to dealers and customers — without delay or interruption. Vehicle sales grew by nearly 9% between 2018 and 2019, and Veeam supported that growth.”

Protecting enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems such as SAP is a concern for many businesses. According to the Forbes Technology Council[DPY1], 89% of companies surveyed worry about ERP downtime, and they estimate the damage could cost $5 million.

Veeam is an SAP-certified backup and recovery solution. The Veeam Plug-in for SAP HANA®lets IMSAF manage backup and restore natively through backint integration. The plug-in functions as an intermediary between SAP HANA and the Veeam backup repository; therefore, all backup and recovery operations are performed with native SAP HANA tools to simplify management and assure transaction consistency.

“One of the biggest benefits of using Veeam is being able to recover SAP data instantly,” Meyer said. “Almost every business decision is driven by SAP, and Veeam helps us make sure it’s always available.”

Another benefit is protecting customers’ personal information from loss or damage. Veeam supports compliance with the POPI Act by providing built-in, AES 256-bit end-to-end encryption. Every backup is protected against unauthorized access. Veeam backs up 4 TB across 50 virtual machines on-premises for local recovery and replicates them off-premises for BC and DR. Replication, failover and failback weren’t an option before Veeam.

“Veeam makes BC and DR amazingly efficient and effective,” Meyer said. “It’s easy to see why Veeam is a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. That’s one of the reasons we knew Veeam would be right for us.”
