Data protection for back-office operations, reporting, data analytics, and other business functions that use databases is more critical than ever due to today’s larger data volumes and increasing security threats. SAP HANA customers have told Dell EMC that our Ready Solutions must include an integrated and supported data protection option. Based on this feedback, our Ready Solutions for SAP HANA now offer supported integration with Data Domain deduplication storage systems. Our SAP HANA solutions provide a single-vendor, comprehensive offering that addresses both database and data protection design and performance.
