DR Solution On SAP

Business Requirement

Our Client is running an SAP Solution which serves more than 1500 users, spread across various geographical location. The SAP server is hosted as a virtual machine on their on-premise VMware based virtualized environment. Our Client wanted to have a cost-effective Disaster Recovery solution in place for the SAP server which can provide business continuity in case of disaster. The client’s IT team had evaluated a couple of DR solutions from different vendors but could not set up DR successfully. The client’s IT team decided to involve a vendor who can assess their existing infrastructure, understand the requirement, and then propose a DR solution that works. They also wanted to test the solution before finalizing it.


Mismo Systems started the engagement with understanding the Client’s business needs and expectations from the proposed solution.

After initial assessment and requirement gathering, the Mismo team proposed Azure Site Recovery (ASR) as a DR solution. Azure Site Recovery can protect Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware and physical servers, and can use Azure or secondary on-premise datacenter as a recovery site. Site Recovery coordinates and manages the ongoing replication of data by integrating with existing technologies including System Center and Microsoft SQL Server Always On.


Mismo team did the setup of an Azure tenant for the Client, created a Recovery Service Vault and completed other prerequisites. A Management server was deployed on-premise and then SAP VM, which is running on a VMware environment was protected.



Mismo team along with the Client’s IT team successfully Implemented the DR solution for the SAP using Azure Site Recovery (ASR).

Mismo team prepared a deployment document of the DR solution as well and shared it with the Client’s IT team.

The client’s IT & business teams are satisfied with the functionality and cost of the DR solution. They do regular ‘no impact’ testing on their own. The USP of the solution were low cost, reliability, security, and ease of use.
