In a Proof of Concept an international team of Deloitte, EMC, VMware and Cisco experts worked together to identify the challenges of SAP HANA Disaster Recovery over long distances (greater than 500 km).
The diagram below describes the high-level architectural overview used in this PoC for Virtualized SAP HANA environments using a Vblock in the Deloitte data center in Suwanee, GA, while in the EMC data center in Durham, NC, the Virtualized SAP HANA environment is on VMware/Cisco/EMC infrastructure in TDI mode of operation.
The following two diagrams show the tested use cases for a HANA Data Mart as well as the SAP HANA Business Suite.
In my opinion the beauty of the solution is in the software-defined approach provided by VMware SRM in combination with EMC RecoverPoint as shown in the following figure.
