IAAS-BASED IT INFRASTRUCTURE FOR SAP BUSINESS APPLICATIONS
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
To Improve operations efficiency by introducing business management tools.
To migrate from a system of heterogeneous information systems to a single SAP platform.
- The IT platform at the Jet Infosystems Virtual Data Center, consisting of: a complex system of 67 servers, a data storage system, a backup system (Symantec Veritas NetBackup), a SAP HANA system and a system for monitoring the state of IT infrastructure.
- SAP ERP and SAP BI production applications.
- Comprehensive technical support and admin services for SAP Basis,, and round-the-clock monitoring of the infrastructure and all application software.
The virtual data center fully complies with the vendor's requirements and standards for deployment, operation and administration of SAP systems, including SAP HANA.
An IT platform for SAP applications was deployed at the Jet Infosystems virtual data center in less than two weeks. On this platform, we implemented SAP ERP and SAP BI production applications, and environments for development and testing. The resources of this new IT platform are flexibly scalable, dependent upon current business needs.
Provision for cluster fault tolerance is made both at the physical level and at the level of virtual machines. To improve the ERP system’s performance, we moved the database to separate servers, and distributed the SAP application layer across several servers.
