With Dolphin CAS for Cloud 3.0, most organizations can be up and running a cloud storage solution for systems running SAP software in less than a day.
Morgan Hill, California, Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) December 18, 2014
Dolphin Enterprise Solutions today announced the official release and SAP certification of Dolphin Content Archive Service (CAS) for Cloud 3.0, which enables organizations running SAP® software to use popular “storage-as-service” cloud solutions such as HTTP content servers. The solution was recertified by the SAP Integration Certification Center (SAP ICC) for integration with the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform using the SAP integration scenario BC-HCS 6.40.
Dolphin CAS for Cloud 3.0 enables any SAP application that uses SAP ArchiveLink® software for structured and unstructured content storage to use cloud storage instead of more expensive on-premise storage. The solution can be used to efficiently store archived SAP data and documents, including inbound and outbound documents, printlists, DART files, and KPro-based content (e.g., business-driven data transformation, business document and communication services). It leverages built-in secured communication capabilities of SAP NetWeaver and can be used to connect to a wide variety of leading cloud storage services such as Amazon S3, AT&T Synaptic Storage, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, EMC ATMOS, Fujitsu, Verizon and Google Storage.
The 3.0 version supports the latest SAP HTTP content server protocol version 6.40 and provides a range of new features, such one-click integration with performance benchmarking tools, local disk write-through caching, compression, and two new “encryption at rest” options that allow the content to be encrypted before it leaves the premise. This encryption is in addition to the server-side encryption offered by the cloud providers. It also provides byte/offset-based access to archived content, which is critical for data and printlist archiving and is not available in other cloud storage solutions.
The solution is designed to be easy to implement. The zero-footprint solution fits right into the SAP software landscape as an ABAP® add-on and requires no additional on-premise hardware or software. With Dolphin CAS for Cloud 3.0, most organizations can be up and running a cloud storage solution for systems running SAP software in less than a day.
“Exponential growth in data, coupled with a move towards more expensive in-memory architecture, magnifies the need for an intelligent data and document storage strategy that allows the primary system running SAP Business Suite software to stay lean. Recent improvements in stability, security, performance and bandwidth, coupled with practically unlimited elasticity of the storage-as-service cloud, have presented us with a great opportunity to tap into the cloud as a viable tier for SAP data and document archiving,” according to Vishal Awasthi, CTO at Dolphin.
