SAP deploys VMware virtualisation platform

To streamline IT environment at its global datacentres

By CBR Staff Writer

SAP Managed Services has deployed VMware platform across its IT environment as the main virtualisation platform for agile and adaptable implementations of SAP offerings.

According to VMware, its virtualisation platform, along with resource savings through green IT and datacentre process automation, enables SAP Managed Services to provide efficient access to training and demo offering, development landscapes and business-critical SAP applications without the cost, complexity or energy consumption.

The company claims that the internal customers gain a flexible computing model that enables them to meet demands as business requirements change while preserving the efficiency, control and choice they require.

SAP Managed Services is leveraging the virtualisation offerings as part of its Lean Demo System Landscape (LDSL) project to streamline its IT environment at its global datacentres. The implementation provides automated, self-service provisioning in an LDSL environment using VMware vCenter Lifecycle Manager, reducing the timeframe for global demo deployment from days to less than two hours. SAP Managed Services has deployed more than 8,000 virtual machines using VMware software as the primary platform.

Martin Przewloka, senior vice president of demo solutions at SAP marketing, said: Because the demand for image-based demo solutions of our products is increasing significantly, automated system provisioning in less than a day became mission-critical for our business. Our Lean Demo System Landscape Services can now be further expanded to fulfill additional customer requirements, and we’re looking forward to leveraging this new technology for larger demo solutions as a next step.
