SAP HANA Network Requirements

Fibre Channel for SAN storage
Ethernet for NFS shared NAS storage



With the Storage Area Networks the Fibre Channel storage LUNs4 are mapped to SAP HANA server hosts with a point-to-point connection. In the event of a failover to the standby host, the remapping is managed by the SAP HANA Storage Connector [5]. SAN LUNs appear to the OS as disks (along with the local disks). For shared SAP HANA binaries NFS/NAS5 storage is required. Redundant connectivity to the corporate network via LAN (Ethernet) and to storage via Storage Area Network (SAN) must always be configured. In the following picture, the internode network connected via Ethernet (LAN) is attached to an NFSshared NAS storage holding the SAP HANA binaries, which all SAP HANA servers must be able to access. In addition, each SAP HANA server is connected to its own non-shared storage; the Fibre Channel protocol controls the mapping of each persistence (data and log areas) to LUNs on the SAN. Reconnection of the LUNs residing on the storage in the event of a failover is supported by the SAP HANA Storage Connector API.
