The best-run businesses run their SAP environments on VMware to ensure that they can achieve the most flexible, resilient, innovative, and cost-effective mission business platform possible. VMware helps customers transform their entire SAP landscape by accelerating their enterprise into the digital era through virtualization, automation and standardization of their software-defined data centers. Our capabilities improve efficiency, scalability, flexibility and agility for your entire environment—enabling your organization to more easily deploy and consume SAP solutions like SAP S/4 HANA.
At VMware, we focus on delivering the best virtual infrastructure for current SAP platforms like SAP HANA and new capabilities like vSAN and Kubernetes into our virtual environment. This ensures that as SAP modernizes its portfolio, you will be able to easily incorporate these new capabilities in your digital transformation.

VMware and SAP have joined forces to enable customers to run SAP HANA better, faster, smarter, and less expensively than ever before, with options to deploy SAP HANA in multi and hybrid cloud environments. Customers can choose to deploy SAP HANA in a highly optimized on-premise private cloud, in the public cloud or both, with the option to run SAP HANA in a hybrid capacity. With hybrid architectures powered by VMWare, your experience between on and off-premise installations can be seamless and free from code refactoring. These deployment scenarios are fully supported by VMware and SAP so that customers can adopt multi and hybrid cloud SAP HANA deployments with confidence.
Deploying and consuming SAP-supported software and hardware for SAP HANA can be complex. The combination of VMware vSphere, vSAN and NSX (VMWare Cloud Foundation or VCF) on supported partner hardware gives you the benefit of a truly software-defined, hyperconverged infrastructure platform that is certified and supported by both VMware and SAP. Hyperconverged infrastructure for SAP HANA provides enhanced service levels and reduces TCO beyond workload virtualization to further consolidate the data center and lower power consumption.
SAP HANA operations can be slow to execute and difficult to deploy. And once deployed, SAP HANA database growth can quickly increase memory requirements—increasing costs and pushing the boundaries of the data center. Virtualizing SAP HANA with VMware can reduce TCO by reducing the number of physical SAP HANA servers and supporting larger compute and memory workloads on the same hardware. Virtualization also increases the resiliency and availability of business-critical SAP HANA databases. Even better, SAP supports virtualization for all SAP HANA modes, including scale-up, scale-out, and multi-VM scenarios.
As customers look to modernize their SAP environments and start to incorporate cloud-native technologies such as SAP Gardener and SAP Cloud Platform PE, many find that these solutions are complex to purchase and require manual tasks to get them up and running. VMware can simplify and shorten timelines for SAP Cloud Native deployments, providing the ability to connect diverse types of devices and maximize data value. Joint solutions are delivered by trusted enterprise leaders and provide IT with the proper security, management and visibility into the modern application infrastructure and provide the control necessary to ensure their containerized and microservices are at optimal performance. Also, VMware can provide 360-degree analytics, optimizing the value of the data coming from the devices and ensuring the proper monitoring of the edge systems and connected devices' health.
Automate provisioning and management of your virtualized SAP system so that solution administrators can use a single management plane for SAP infrastructure and landscapes with VMware SAP Automation capabilities, powered by the VMWare vRealize suite of products. Realize the benefits of better service levels to increase efficiency and reduce time to market.
