Azure Backup for SAP HANA: Soft limit increased from 2 TB to 8 TB
Published date: February 11, 2021
Now you can protect larger SAP HANA DBs (such as Mv2 – 12 TB RAM machines) with the enhanced data transfer capabilities from Azure Backup. Azure backup for SAP HANA now attempts to provide data transfer speeds upto 420 MBps for non-log backups (such as full, differential and incremental) and 100 MBps for log backups. This enhanced data transfer ability means that you can backup ~1.5 TB per hour which then translates to 6-8 TB of full backups in 4-6 hours. The Azure backup service also attempts to provide similar speeds during restore operations too. To understand whether the Azure VM hosting the SAP HANA DB can provide such speeds, refer to Azure Backup documentation.
