Blog: Empowering Admins Throughout the Stack

This post was originally posted here.

One of SAP’s unique strategic differentiations is embracing its partnership ecosystem and continuous willingness to support new platforms and technologies. This strategy can easily be seen in the infrastructure world as there are already so many ways to implement SAP HANA. This gives SAP customers the freedom to choose what model fits them best. We love this at Pure as we carry the torch and continue with the same methodology with these customers.  Our SAP solutions give customers the resiliencyperformance and simplicity needed to operate mission-critical applications their businesses require, while taking advantage of multi-cloud deployment scenarios. We work closely with major SAP partners, like VMWare, to make this vision a reality. And it will all be featured at VMWorld in Las Vegas this month.

VMWare has flipped the industry on its ear multiple times. It is the industry-leading server virtualization platform that lets customers virtualize applications with confidence and respond to business needs faster. VMWare Cloud on AWS gives customers a highly scalable, secure and innovative service that allows organizations to seamlessly extend their on-premises environments. For SAP customers, this could mean giving them more options to implement their Disaster Recovery plans. These same applications can benefit from the power ofVVOLS on Pure by managing virtual SAP environments easily. vSphere administrators are now empowered to deliver granular-level data services to assure per-VM SLAs, simplify per-VM management, and gain per-VM data portability for their mission critical applications.

We are not just empowering storage and VM admins but application admins too. Tools such as CAT for SAP have empowered SAP Basisadministrators to automate SAP system-copies, minimizing downtimes and reducing the risk of these highly-sensitive operations. We’re making the tool available for SAP environments on VMWare soon, extending its limits and how these administrators can refresh SAP data and automate some of their tasks.

Running mission-critical applications is not easy, but our aim is to simplify this task. Talk with our experts at VMWorld 2018 Las Vegas at Booth #1120 to learn more about Pure Storage solutions and VMWare.
