Zerto BC/DR for SAP
SAP is a mission critical multi-tier application that is utilized by over 291,000 organizations in 190 countries. In the event of a
disaster or logical failure that impacts the availability of SAP it can result in a significant impact to business operations, data loss,
reduced employee productivity, share price devaluation and negatively impact the company brand.
The protection of SAP is therefore of critical
importance and many businesses try to use a
combination of technologies to protect SAP
such as storage based replication, log shipping
or database mirroring. Each of these different
technologies introduces the following risks to
the recovery of SAP:
Hypervisor-based
• Multiple solutions require separate
skill sets relying on the knowledge of
individuals to recover SAP
Continuous Protection
Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) of seconds with
no performance impact
SAP Optimization
Temporary Database optimization saving 50% of
replication traffic
Automated Recovery
Click to failover SAP with Recovery Time
Objectives (RTOs) of minutes
Compatibility
Protect SAP based on Linux, Windows, Microsoft
SQL, Oracle Database, DB2 and ASE
Complete Recovery
Recover the entire SAP stack consistently together
to the same point in time
Hot Backup
Application consistent support using split-second
hot backup mode quiescing
No impact
No production changes needed to configure SAP
protection
Journaling
Point in time recovery with write-order fidelity of
all database writes to all disks
Click to Test
No-impact disaster recovery testing of SAP to fully
validate the recovery process
Bandwidth
Optimization
Built in compression, throttling and QOS saving
60% replication traffic
• Log shipping and database mirroring
require DBAs to continuously manage and
maintain protection
• No visibility or integration to the
virtualized environment increasing
complexity
• Manual recovery operations result in
Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) of hours
with reliance on individuals
• Testing the recovery of SAP is complex
and time consuming making testing adhoc and in-frequent
• Constant maintenance can be required to
maintain protection introducing risk

Replication & Data Protection
Zerto Virtual Replication delivers a complete BC/DR solution for SAP by providing 4 solutions in 1 for total protection. By
continuously protecting SAP using hypervisor-based replication, Zerto utilizes the replication data for all of your data protection
needs eliminating complexity and production impact. No Virtual Machines (VMs) run in the BC/DR site until a move, test or failover
operation is performed further reducing complexity.
With 4 BC/DR solutions in one, Zerto Virtual Replication enables complete peace of mind for protecting SAP.
• Hypervisor-based replication delivers RPOs of seconds, removes the need for SAN replication, log shipping or application based
protection saving 30%+ of disk space over traditional SAN based protection strategies and significantly reduces administration
costs
• Journal based protection maintaining write-order fidelity enables point in time recovery of SAP down to increments in seconds
up to 14 days in the past without any DBA knowledge
• Click to failover and click to test with built in orchestration & automation delivers RTOs of minutes without the need for
specialist SAP knowledge and the ability to test failovers with no-impact
• Offsite-backup enables long term backups on a daily, weekly or monthly basis either on premise, to a separate datacenter or in
the cloud reducing the cost of archiving and ensuring SAP can always be recovered in the unlikely event of a dual site failure
