When SAP application data is archived, your business’s SAP systems will require increasing amounts of storage over time. As a result, they become slower, more expensive and less manageable. There is a solution, however. You can use CxLink Archive to move your archived data to an Amazon S3 instance running in the AWS Cloud.
What is CxLink Archive?
CxLink Archive is a lean cloud solution that allows businesses to easily and cheaply archive their SAP application data to an Amazon S3 instance in the AWS cloud. It doesn’t matter what operating model is being used to run the SAP applications, or where they are located. CxLink Archive creates a stable connection between the SAP applications and the archived data. Reserving additional AWS storage is simple to do as data volumes increase, and significantly cheaper and less complicated than expanding your own server capacity.
CxLink Archive integrates with the existing SAP management functions used by your business to define routines for automated archiving in line with your compliance and governance rules. That means that you decide what data to move to the archive from the system, when to move it and how long to keep it for.
CxLink Archive has SAP certification and can be purchased through the AWS Marketplace or the SAP Store.
