SAP Solutions on VMware Infrastructure: Customer Use Cases

Cover
At the most basic level, virtualization allows you to run multiple workloads in "virtual machines" - each consisting of an operating system and one or more applications - on a single physical server. With virtualization, you can quickly move workloads from one physical server to another - without any application downtime - enabling flexible and dynamic alignment of business needs with compute resources.

Virtual machines are highly portable and can run unchanged on completely different physical servers since they consist only of a small number of files encapsulating applications, patches, data, and so forth. This structure allows separation of services from the underlying hardware.

Virtualization enjoys fast-growing adoption among SAP customers who are already reaping significant benefits. This document explores the ways real SAP customers have used VMware virtualization to:

  • Optimize datacenter resources
  • Ease SAP upgrades, new implementations, and platform migrations
  • Better meet SLAs
  • Support service delivery to the business
