Hyper-V and SAP Implementation Best Practices
This webcast will provide best practices for the usage of Hyper-V virtualization as platform for SAP installations. While virtualization is an important technology for increasing flexibility and improving the cost structure of SAP landscapes, the requirements in performance and availability of SAP applications typically depend on appropriate information for planning, sizing and design of SAP infrastructures. The presentation will cover the aspects of performance and sizing, infrastructure design (like storage, network, high availability), operational aspects and monitoring and licensing questions of SAP Web Application Server on Hyper-V. Based on the provided information, attendees can plan infrastructures for SAP on Hyper-V and assess the technologies for running SAP applications in a virtualized environment.
