Dynamically Rebalance Applications with SAP Virtualization

With VMware virtualization solutions, your SAP solutions based development, test, training, and production environments can cost less and be more productive than within a purely physical infrastructure. From server consolidation and containment to business process and data center automation, the full range of virtualization benefits can be applied to all sizes of SAP deployments.

Support

SAP has released a general support statement for virtual environments, including support for packaging the SAP GUI with VMware ThinApp. Visit the SAP Community Network for more information and resources.

You can dynamically rebalance applications while increasing resource utilization across your test development, Q&A, training and production environments. And VMware solutions increase the availability of SAP applications with technologies such as VMware vMotion, VMware High Availability and VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager.
