Business-critical SAP environments consist of many components: applications, databases, operating systems, servers, networking, storage, management tools, and backup software. In a typical multivendor approach, careful and complex process of selection, integration, and testing is critical to ensure the infrastructure can deliver expected performance and reliability. Supported by SAP, the Oracle Optimized Solution for SAP takes a different approach, providing pre-integrated, pre-tested, highly available infrastructure in a single system for maximum efficiency and optimum performance. This technical white paper provides a brief overview of the Oracle Optimized Solution for SAP on SPARC SuperCluster and illustrates how to use it to consolidate SAP environments. Recommendations and best practices are outlined for improving the consolidation, availability, and performance of SAP applications while accelerating time to deployment.
