Can You Fit a 20 TB SAP ECC System onto a 4 TB SAP HANA System?

MoveDataMigrationHANA

The short answer is no. Even with the greater database compression available with SAP HANA, some legacy SAP systems are simply too large to move onto the available SAP HANA appliances. And the larger the system, the more time and effort it requires to make the transition to HANA. MovetoSAPHANA_20TBRecently, Dolphin encountered a large food and beverage company that was experiencing this very problem. With a 20 TB database, the size and complexity of the company's existing SAP systems made it impossible to move to SAP HANA easily. However, using Dolphin Accelerated Archiving, the company was able to quickly shrink the size of its 20 TB SAP ECC system so they could:

  • - Retain the data they needed and purge the data they did not
  • - Complete the transition to SAP HANA faster and with less difficulty
  • - Reduce the size of the new SAP HANA system to only 4TB, saving significant costs and improving the ROI from the move to HANA
