Don’t miss the opportunity to attend a TechEd / ASUG pre-conference seminar and discuss with me the question “Is Your SAP Landscape Ready for In-Memory and Cloud? Check the Readiness of Your SAP Datacenter IT Infrastructure” in a TechEd / ASUG pre-conference seminar in Las Vegas this year.
Some of you may remember me from my time in product management responsible for virtualization and cloud topics in SAP. I am now in a new and quite exiting role. As an IT-planning architect in SAP Active Global Support I am now supporting SAP customers in their planning processes and provide strategic guidance. My main focus in the team is SAP HANA, virtualization and cloud, with a broad scope to architectural planning, capacity planning, IT-infrastructure, SAP instance structure and much more. In this role I am working in real customer projects.
In many MaxAttention customer engagements we hear that SAP customers are constantly challenged by changing business and technology demands in the datacenter. It can be seen that the need for a fast and flexible reaction to changing business demands is increasingly required in the technology arena. Technology trends like in-memory computing and private and public infrastructure clouds change the architecture and operation of the SAP datacenter landscape dramatically. Is the IT infrastructure implemented in a way to flexibly integrate the new database technologies like SAP HANA to get the most benefit out of the new technology? Is the landscape ready to operate existing SAP on-premise solutions on virtual and cloud infrastructures?
With this workshop I prepared, you will get an architectural and operational overview of the IT infrastructure components in the datacenter and best practices around the required processes affected by the aforementioned technologies. Most of the content and best practices was prepared for real customer projects. Aspects covered include: recommended architectures for servers, storage systems, virtualization solutions, cloud infrastructures, and business continuity (HA/DR). Additionally, the session provides best practices around operational processes like provisioning, monitoring, platform and database migrations, database administration, and datacenter automation.

I am looking very much forward meeting you in Las Vegas.
