Is CSV useful to move 30GB SAP Data?

Would you suggest to use csv file format to move a 30GB SAP DB from one cloud system to another one? The DB contains all the typical data types used in SAP ERP, (SD, WM, MM, FI, CO, PP, QM)

    Short answer is "no, I would not suggest that".

    Not sure if any Basis folks would chime in on that (looks like you might have picked a wrong tag). It's rather laughable and unprofessional IMHO of the current provider to just offer you a CSV file.

    You might want to clarify though what exactly are you calling "cloud system" and what SAP product are we talking about.

    • Thanks for accepting the shout out Matt! :)

      i think your comment could be a good userguide and contains many suggestions for the ones without an internal basis team (like me! :) ).

      Again, thanks!

    Hi Cinzia,

    i find REALLY hard to move 30GB of data via a CSV file!

    Why do not you take a snapshot of your DB/Machine and move it to the other system?
    Or you are talking about to migrate into an existing and live system?

    You should give us more information about your scenario, but really, 30GB data on CSV sounds a bit on the impossible side of things to me!

    • It does not matter what they "want". There should be a signed contract that states the provider's responsibilities. I seriously doubt any IT manager in their right mind would sign something that does not have a decent exit strategy. Look in the contract.
