Virtualized SAP Performance With VMware vSphere 4
SAP provides a range of enterprise software applications and business solutions to manage and run the business processes of an entire company. The mission critical role of this software requires reliability, manageability, high performance, and scalability. VMware vSphere 4 can help customers manage a smarter SAP application-based landscape via template-based virtual machine cloning; distributed resource scheduling and power management (VMware DRS and DPM); and improved uptimes through VMotion, VMware HA, and Fault Tolerance. However, these management and reliability features would be less appealing if performance were to suffer. This paper demonstrates that vSphere supports virtualized SAP Enterprise Resource Planning software with excellent performance and scalability.
