Nov 14, 2013
With the trend moving toward large logical CPU and high memory systems at cost-effective prices, more and more SAP® customers want to deploy their business critical, high performance SAP Sybase® production databases on the VMware vSphere® virtual infrastructure. This includes SAP Sybase® IQ, a powerful, efficient column-based relational database management system (RDBMS) platform for extreme-scale enterprise data warehousing and big data analytics. For this reason, VMware®, in cooperation with SAP, conducted testing to characterize the functionality of using SAP Sybase IQ 15.4, configured on VMware vSphere 5.1 virtual infrastructure. This paper describes the testing that was performed, the workload that was used, and the results that were observed. It also outlines the best practices for deploying this solution in the datacenter.
