Hana Backup Storage

Post by trin95 »

Hello Experts

How to calculate storage space for hana abckup ?

SAP formula is: (Sizedata+Sizeredolog) x backup cycle.
But my backup is much smaller than this formula suggests.

For example, my
/hana/data is 500 GB (i.e. occupied by data)
/hana/log is 50GB
But the Full backup is only
200 data backup
20 log backup
How to calculate that correctly?

Many Thanks

It depends on the selected backup method. If you make backups at the application level using our plug-in for SAP HANA, I'd recommend following the SAP formula: it's much better to have some free space on your backup storage than to end up with the failed backups due to a lack of this very free space.

If you protect your SAP HANA workloads using image-level backup, data compression is performed by the Source Data Mover running on a proxy server. You may refer to the capacity calculator. I guess you can determine your change rate by running a couple of incremental backups and comparing the resulting size.
