SAPPHIRE NOW Madrid: SAP supports virtualisation for HANA

SAP will be supporting VMware vSphere 5.1 for test and development use on the SAP HANA platform.

By deploying SAP HANA on VMware vSphere, customers can use a data centre
platform that offers agility, cost savings and easy provisioning,
according to SAP.

“The software defined datacenter, delivered by the VMware vCloud Suite,
can empower organisations to achieve greater agility and flexibility
while simplifying their IT operations,” said Parag Patel, vice
president, global strategic alliances, VMware.

“SAP support for VMware vSphere 5.1 on SAP HANA can give customers the
confidence they need to be successful in virtualising their tier-one
business-critical applications.”

The virtualisation of the software will give customers the ability to
provision instances of SAP HANA in virtual machines faster, give them
access to the data centre capabilities of VMware vSphere and enable SAP
HANA to operate on a VMware deployment architecture that is commonly
found in SAP customer data centres.

SAP said other validated and certified SAP technology partners are
expected to offer virtualised SAP HANA appliances for test and
development.
