Cisco® Validated Designs consist of systems and solutions that are designed, tested, and documented to facilitate and improve customer deployments.
This Cisco® Validated Design reports the results of a study evaluating the usability of a shared infrastructure for SAP applications and SAP landscapes on Cisco® UCS B-Series Blade Servers running VMware vSphere connected to the NetApp Storage array.
This document is intended to assist solution architects, sales engineers, field engineers and consultants in planning, design, and deployment of SAP application landscapes on the Cisco Unified Computing System. This document assumes that the reader has an architectural understanding of the Cisco Unified Computing System, VMware vSphere, NetApp storage system, and SAP software.
To meet this challenge NetApp and Cisco have collaborated to create FlexPod for SAP Applications™. FlexPod is a proven, long term data center solution built on a flexible, shared infrastructure that can scale easily or be configured for secure multi-tenancy and Cloud environments. FlexPod is a prevalidated configuration that delivers a virtualized data center in a rack composed of leading computing, networking, storage, and infrastructure software components.
