One of the cornerstones of Pure Storage® design principles is simplicity. This is clearly evident in how easy it is to snapshot/clone databases on a Pure Storage Array.
This document was written to help storage administrators, SAP system administrators, and data center architects find out more about this feature for a very common use case backup and recovery of a database instance. The database in this case is SAP HANA®. This paper covers the necessary steps to take a snapshot of a SAP HANA® instance for backup purposes. It also explains how to restore the database from the snapshot.
