At the most basic level, virtualization allows you to run multiple workloads in “virtual machines” – each consisting of an operating system and one or more applications – on a single physical server. With virtualization, you can quickly move workloads from one physical server to another – without any application downtime - enabling flexible and dynamic alignment of business needs with compute resources.

Virtual machines are highly portable and can run unchanged on completely different physical servers since they consist only of a small number of files encapsulating applications, patches, data, and so forth. This structure allows separation of services from the underlying hardware.

Virtualization enjoys fast-growing adoption among SAP customers who are already reaping significant benefits. This document explores the ways real SAP customers have used VMware virtualization to:

▪ Optimize datacenter resources
▪ Ease SAP upgrades, new implementations, and platform migrations
▪ Better meet SLAs
▪ Support service delivery to the business
