ERP DR on Azure has been implemented and accomplished after 2 weeks by NGS I.T, officially go-live on 06/01/2020, which facilitates BETRIMEX to protect themselves from unpredictable risks such as hardware damages, electricity shut-down, fire with ERP system in Data Center. With the Database Replication solution, all data on main ERP system are “stimulated” real-time on DR system to assure that data are completely backed up with ERP once the system gets incidents.
Once incident occurred, BETRIMEX should switch to DR system to assure that the operation is not interrupted. The approximate time amount for switching to DR is 5 to 15 minutes.
DR system for ERP is indispensable for keeping the continuity for enterprises, especially for consecutive production enterprise like BETRIMEX. The implementation on Azure helps BETRIMEX save a lot of expenses by only making payment for HANA Database server, without payment for SAP Application server while DR is off, as well as BETRIMEX is charged the fees when the server is turned on.
The construction of DR system on Azure is also a stepping stone for BETRIMEX in the plan realization for ERP Production migration to Azure cloud services. Downtime of the ERP system should be optimized, compared with the old solution without DR, currently costs approximately 3-4 hours instead of several days formerly
