Storage Configuration for SAP HANA - SAP HANA on AWS

Storage Configuration for SAP HANA

SAP HANA stores and processes all or most of its data in memory, and provides protection against data loss by saving the data in persistent storage locations. To achieve optimal performance, the storage solution used for SAP HANA data and log volumes should meet SAP's storage KPI. AWS has worked with SAP to certify both Amazon EBS General Purpose SSD (gp2 and gp3) and Provisioned IOPS SSD (io1, io2, and io2 Block Express) storage solutions for SAP HANA workloads.

gp2 and gp3 volumes balance price and performance for a variety of workloads, while io1, io2, and io2 Block Express volumes provide the highest performance for mission-critical applications. From these options, you can choose the best storage solution that meets your performance and cost requirements. We recommend the io2 or io2 Block Express configuration for mission-critical SAP HANA production workloads.

Note that only the following instances are certified for production use: r3.8xlarge, r4.8xlarge, r4.16xlarge, r5.8xlarge, r5.12xlarge, r5.16xlarge, r5.24xlarge, r5.metal, r5b.8xlarge, r5b.12xlarge, r5b.16xlarge, r5b.24xlarge, r5b.metal, r6i.12xlarge, r6i.16xlarge, r6i.24xlarge, r6i.32xlarge, x1.16xlarge, x1.32xlarge, x1e.32xlarge, x2idn.16xlarge, x2idn.24xlarge, x2idn.32xlarge, x2iden.24xlarge, x2iden.32xlarge, u-3tb1.56xlarge, u-6tb1.56xlarge, u-6tb1.112xlarge, u-9tb1.112xlarge, u-12tb1.112xlarge, u-6tb1.metal, u-9tb1.metal, u-12tb1.metal, u-18tb1.metal, and u-24tb1.metal. For nonproduction use, all of the instance types in this guide are supported.

For multi-node deployments, storage volumes for SAP HANA data and logs are provisioned in the master and worker nodes.

In the following configurations, we intentionally kept the same storage configuration for SAP HANA data and log volumes for all R3, certain R4 and R5, and smaller X1e/X2iedn instance types so you can scale up from smaller instances to larger instances without having to reconfigure your storage.

Note

The X1, X1e, X2idn, and X2iedn instance types include instance storage but should not be used to persist any SAP HANA related files.

* Each logical processor offered by Amazon EC2 High Memory Instances is a hyperthread on a physical CPU core.

** This value represents the maximum throughput that could be achieved when striping multiple EBS volumes. Actual throughput depends on the instance type. Every instance type has its own Amazon EBS throughput maximum. For details, see Amazon EBS-Optimized Instances in the AWS documentation.

***gp3 based configurations are only supported in production for Nitro based instances, not for Xen based instances.

General Purpose SSD (gp2) volumes created or modified after 12/03/2018 have a throughput maximum between 128 MiB/s and 250 MiB/s depending on volume size. Volumes greater than 170 GiB and below 334 GiB deliver a maximum throughput of 250 MiB/s if burst credits are available. Volumes with 334 GiB and above deliver 250 MiB/s, irrespective of burst credits. For details, see Amazon EBS Volume Types in the AWS documentation.

General Purpose SSD gp3 volumes deliver a consistent baseline of 3,000 IOPS and 125 MiB/s. You can also purchase additional IOPS (up to 16,000) and throughput (up to 1,000 MiB/s). While we recommend you to use the configurations shown in this guide, gp3 volumes provide flexibility to customize SAP HANA’s storage configuration (IOPS and throughput) according to your needs and usage.

The minimum gp3 configuration required to meet SAP HANA KPIs are the following:

Storage Area IOPS Throughput
SAP HANA Data 7,000 425 MiB/s
SAP HANA Logs 3,000 275 MiB/s

io1, io2, and io2 Block Express for HANA

* Each logical processor offered by Amazon EC2 High Memory Instances is a hyperthread on a physical CPU core.

** In a multi-node architecture, the SAP HANA NFS shared volume is provisioned only once on the master node.

*** In a multi-node architecture, the SAP HANA backup volume can be deployed as NFS or Amazon EFS. The size of the SAP HANA NFS backup volume is multiplied by the number of nodes. The SAP HANA backup volume is provisioned only once on the master node, and NFS is mounted on the worker nodes. There is no provision needed for Amazon EFS as it is built to scale on demand, growing and shrinking automatically as files are added and removed.

Backup options

For SAP HANA backup, you can choose file-based backup with storage configuration recommended in this guide or AWS Backint for SAP HANA to backup your database on Amazon S3. AWS Backint Agent for SAP HANA is an SAP-certified backup and restore solution for SAP HANA workloads running on Amazon EC2 instances. With AWS Backint for SAP HANA as your backup solution, provisioning additional Amazon EBS storage volumes or Amazon EFS file systems becomes optional. For more details, see AWS Backint Agent for SAP HANA.

For single-node deployment, we recommend using Amazon EBS Throughput Optimized HDD (st1) volumes for SAP HANA to perform file-based backup. This volume type provides low-cost magnetic storage designed for large sequential workloads. SAP HANA uses sequential I/O with large blocks to back up the database, so st1 volumes provide a low-cost, high-performance option for this scenario. To learn more about st1 volumes, see Amazon EBS Volume Types.

The SAP HANA backup volume size is designed to provide optimal baseline and burst throughput as well as the ability to hold several backup sets. Holding multiple backup sets in the backup volume makes it easier to recover your database if necessary. You may resize your SAP HANA backup volume after initial setup if needed. To learn more about resizing your Amazon EBS volumes, see Expanding the Storage Size of an EBS Volume on Linux.

For multi-node deployment, we recommend using Amazon EFS for SAP HANA to perform file-based backup. It can support performance over 10 GB/sec and over 500,000 IOPS.

Note

The configurations recommended in this guide are used by both, AWS Launch Wizard for SAP and AWS Quick Start for SAP HANA.
