Hey there, SQL and SAP HANA users! Have you ever wondered how to restore your databases in another region in case of a disaster? Well, wonder no more, because I’m going to show you how to do it in a few simple steps.
First, you need to have a backup of your databases in a storage account that is geo-redundant. This means that your data is replicated across multiple regions for high availability and durability. You can use Azure Backup or any other tool that supports SQL or SAP HANA backup.
Next, you need to create a new SQL or SAP HANA instance in the region where you want to restore your data. You can use the Azure portal, PowerShell, CLI, or ARM templates to do this. Make sure you choose the same version and edition as your original instance.
Finally, you need to restore your backup to the new instance. You can use the Azure portal, PowerShell, CLI, or any other tool that supports SQL or SAP HANA restore. You will need to provide the storage account name, container name, and backup file name of your backup. You can also specify the point-in-time or log sequence number (LSN) if you want to restore to a specific point.
And that’s it! You have successfully restored your SQL or SAP HANA databases in another region. You can now connect to them and verify that everything is working as expected.
