Deploying PP in a virtualized environment

  1. 1. PP Virtualization Options for multiple PP Server deployments on a Single Server Ambareesh Kulkarni Sr. Director, Professional Services
  2. 2. Partitioning a SUN Server (virtualization) <ul><li>Virtualization is the ability to partition a single physical server into multiple, concurrently active, self-contained logical partitions (LPARs) </li></ul><ul><li>Each LPAR acts as a fully functional hardware server, that runs its own copy of the operating system and a separate application such as: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Oracle DB </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>SAP or </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pipeline Pilot </li></ul></ul>

  5. 5. Scalability – Infrastructure Design Scalability With an application like PP, the ability to scale by adding more resources to it is crucial. Traditionally this would have involved purchasing many high capacity physical servers and running complex clustering or application distribution technology. Vertical scalability means to add resources to a single note in a system, typically involving the addition of CPUs or memory to a single system. Such vertical scaling of existing systems also allows them to leverage virtualization technology more effectively, as it provides more resources to the hosted operating system and application to share. Horizontal scalability means to add more nodes to a system, such as adding a new server to a distributed software application. Virtualization again allows this to happen without adding physical servers as long as the application is able to support this type of distribution.
