The goal is to help customers run SAP Business Suite applications in converged infrastructure systems with increasing levels of automation. VCE, a company formed by Cisco Systems Inc. and EMC with investments from VMware and Intel Corporation, accelerates the adoption of converged infrastructure and cloud-based computing models. This approach dramatically reduces the cost of IT while improving time to market for customers. 14 Conclusion 2

3 A Best-of-Breed Integrated Operations Architecture SAP Consulting and VCE have jointly designed a best-of-breed integrated operations architecture, intended specifically for customers that have invested significantly in on-premise SAP landscapes to run their mission-critical applications, and validated it in a lab environment. This document describes the architecture design and provides information to help your staff perform routine operational tasks and respond quickly and efficiently to IT and business needs. The paper details design considerations such as the configuration, software versions, and tips, tricks, and traps associated with the various test scenarios. SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management is an SAP software product that automates the operations of SAP system landscapes. It increases flexibility and business agility by simplifying and optimizing the provisioning and management of SAP systems through the use of virtualization technology such as VMware vsphere and VMware vcloud Director. Figure 1 summarizes the functionality of SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management for the simplification of landscape management. This is achieved by: SAP customers running RISC/Unix have been taking a phased journey to the cloud by first migrating existing landscapes and associated databases to an x86 platform by way of converged infrastructure from VCE. Customers have reported achieving 50% better performance, 30% reduction in total cost of ownership, and 50% smaller footprint. System management (start, stop, relocate and mass operations) Landscape visualization End-to-end monitoring of systems and infrastructure (performance and health data) Configurable dashboards Reporting functionality Besides the system management, automation is achieved by: Figure 1: Functionality of SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management, Version 1.0 Third-party support and extensibility End-to-end visibility and monitoring of all infrastructure layers Start, stop, relocate systems and mass operations Manage your SAP landscapes System cloning System copy and refresh Automated end-to-end framework for SAP system clone, copy, and refresh Automatic capacity management via dialog instance scaling Task planner to schedule one-time or repetitive activities Automatic validation to verify environment before performing operations Landscape visualization Automated capacity management 3

4 This paper focuses on the start, stop, relocate; system copy; and system clone functionality. SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management can be quickly deployed and easily operated on VCE Vblock Systems since Vblock is a standardized, predefined converged infrastructure. Each Vblock System has a base configuration, which is a minimum set of compute and storage components, as well as fixed network resources. Within the base configuration, certain hardware aspects can be customized. Together, the components offer balanced CPU, I/O bandwidth and storage capacity relative to the compute and storage arrays in the system. Vblock Systems VCE Vblock Systems smoothly integrate leading compute, network, and storage technologies. Through intelligent discovery, awareness, and automation, Vblock Systems provide the highest levels of virtualization and application performance. Vblock Systems are unique in their ability to be managed as a single entity with a common interface that provides customers with end-to-end visibility. VCE s flagship systems are as follows: The Vblock System 300 family of systems includes a range of agile and efficient data center class solutions providing flexible and scalable performance. It features a high-density, compact fabric switch, tightly integrated fabric-based blade servers, and best-in-class unified storage. The Vblock System 700 family of systems includes a range of enterprise-class, mission-critical solutions for the world s most demanding workloads and service levels. The Vblock System 300 environment used for this paper consists of: Cisco UCS servers as the compute base (10 UCS B-440 M2 blades at 2.4 GHz, yielding a total of 5.12 TB memory, 40 sockets, and 400 cores) EMC VNX 5700 storage with 157 TB capacity used as a Storage Area Network (SAN) and Network File System (NFS) option VMware vsphere 5.1 Solution in Detail The following is a detailed overview of the physical and logical layout of the infrastructure and software architecture used in this reference setup. Software Components The table below summarizes the software components that were used for the reference setup hosted on the Vblock System. 4

5 Software Components Used for the Reference Setup SAP Components 1 SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management software, version 1.0, SP06 (SID: LV1, Instance Nr: 00) 2 SAP ERP 6.0 based on SAP NetWeaver 7.02, SP13 (SID: EC1, Instance Nr: 00) 3 SAP ERP 6.0 based on SAP NetWeaver 7.02, SP13 (SID: EC2, Instance Nr: 00) NOTE: This system is created via the cloning operation performed in SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management. 4 SAP host agent for Red Hat Linux Operating Systems 5 Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Server Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Database 7 Oracle EMC Storage Integrator (ESI) 8 JBoss Application Server EMC High-Level Storage Library Administrator Console (EHAC) 10 EMC ESI Storage Adapter v1.51 for SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management Virtualization 11 VMware vcenter Server VMware ESXi Logical Layout The software components are deployed on a Vblock System.

EMC Storage Integration for the SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management storage adapter is deployed on a JBoss Application Server running on Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 Server, which is installed on phys4. Test Scenarios in Detail The systems to be managed with SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management can be installed in different variants: Storage-based and adaptively configured SAP systems are installed on shared, central storage with virtual host names and IP addresses. SAP systems based on a virtual machine (VM) are traditionally installed within a VM, and the corresponding virtualization manager is configured within SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management. 6

7 The SAP systems used in this setup are adaptively installed on a Vblock System 300. The system copy process is based on a storage-based file-system cloning approach. The following describes the functionality and required configuration aspects. Start, Stop, and Relocation of SAP Systems The start, stop, and relocate functionality is achieved by using an adaptively configured SAP application used in conjunction with the appropriate SAP host agent. The adaptive configuration refers to decoupling of the operating system (OS) from the SAP application layer. This setup is established by using virtual IP addresses and virtual host names in conjunction with mounting the application-relevant file systems via a shared, central storage, in this case NFS, from the central EMC VNX. Virtual Host Name Configuration Host Name vec1db.mo.sap.corp SAP Component System Database (ABAP): Oracle 11g vec1ascs.mo.sap.corp Central Services (ABAP) - Instance No. 00 vec1ci.mo.sap.corp Central Instance (ABAP) - Instance No. 01 In addition to the virtual host names and IP addresses, the SAP application and database-specific file systems have been mounted to the Red Hat Linux operating system via NFS from the EMC VNX series, unified storage system. Figures 3, 4, and 5 show the mount point configuration in SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management. The SAP ERP 6.0 system (SID: EC1) has been set up as a distributed configuration for the test scenario using the following virtual host name configuration. Figure 3: Central Services Mount Point Configuration in SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management 7

8 Figure 4: Central Instance Mount Point Configuration in SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management Figure 5: Database Mount Point Configuration in SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management The EC1 system can be attached to the virtual resource phys2, phys3, and phys5 running on Red Hat Linux. As a prerequisite, the users ec1adm and oraec1 have to be available on all three resources. The corresponding home directory of ec1adm is mounted to each virtual resource via NFS as well. The SAP host agent 7.20 SP148 is installed on all virtual resources. The relocation process can be used for each SAP component of the EC1 system separately. This means the database, the central service, or the central instance can be moved to the virtual resource phys2, phys3, or phys5. 8

9 Figure 6: Relocation of SAP Services Using SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management The relocation process has been performed successfully, as shown in Figure 6. system refresh functionality. The system clone functionality is the basis for a system copy and system refresh. SAP System Copy and SAP System Clone SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management provides end-to-end SAP system clone, system copy, and Each process system clone, system copy, and system refresh can be divided into subtasks, which are shown in Figure 7. Figure 7: Subtasks for System Clone, System Copy, and System Refresh System clone Clone Prepare Activate isolation Start System copy Clone Prepare Activate isolation Systemrename Start Post copy automation (PCA) Deactivate isolation System refresh Export configuration Stop Unprepare Clone Prepare Activate isolation Systemrename Start Import configuration + PCA Deactivate isolation 9

10 Using SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management, a fully automated, comprehensive SAP system copy was performed using the SAP ERP application system as a source system, as shown in the table below. The existing resource phys3 was used as the target resource for the system copy procedure. Cloning Using EMC Storage Integrator (ESI) The cloning step is performed via a storage-based cloning using the EMC Storage Integrator (ESI) for SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management. One component of EMC ESI is an adapter deployed on SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management. The other component is the EMC High-Level Storage Library Administration Console (EHAC) running on a JBoss Application Server. EHAC provides a single point of management to manage user accounts, assign storage systems to users, and act as a gateway for the SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management adapter to access storage systems. With EHAC, administrators can manage storage space assigned to individual users by controlling read/write access to the storage pools for each individual system. Item Source System SID EC1 Database vec1db.mo.sap.corp Central Services vec1ascs.mo.sap.corp ASCS Number 00 Central Instance vec1ci.mo.sap.corp CI Number 01 Item Target System SID EC2 Database vec2db.mo.sap.corp Central Services vec2ascs.mo.sap.corp ASCS Number 00 Central Instance vec2ci.mo.sap.corp CI Number 01 10

11 Figure 8 shows the components of the EMC ESI for the integration with SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management used in this setup. The ESI for SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management provides storage management capabilities and allows users to manage cloning and snapshots from within the SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management user interface.

12 The EMC ESI is fully integrated into SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management for defining the cloning process. The volumes to be created during the storage configuration step are displayed in the system copy workflow of SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management. The screen shot of the storage configuration in the system copy workflow of SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management is shown in Figure 9. Figure 9: SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management System Copy Workflow Configuration Steps for Storage-Based Cloning 12

13 Figure 10: SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management Log View for the Successful Cloning of EC1 System To minimize the downtime of the source system during the system copy process, the Oracle database has been cloned online. Figure 10 shows the screen shot of the SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management log view for the successful cloning of the EC1 system. To perform the online copy of the Oracle database, a transfer mount point needs to be defined for the EC1 system in SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management in order to have the last redo logs available for replay on the target system. (See Figure 11.) Figure 11: Transfer Mount Configuration Required for Online Cloning of the Oracle Database 13

14 System Rename and Post Copy Automation After the cloning of the EC1 system and the prepare phase to attach the cloned volumes to the resource phys3, SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management triggers the system rename feature in the software provisioning manager to rename the Security Identifier Definition (SID) and virtual host names to the target EC2 system. To perform the post copy steps, SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management triggered the post copy automation task list that has been implemented in the ABAP programming language on the target EC2 system. Conclusion Until now, managing SAP landscapes has been mostly a manual and time-consuming endeavor. SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management software combined with Vblock Systems from VCE deliver a highly efficient and productive environment to provision and operate on-premise applications based on the SAP NetWeaver technology platform. By leveraging SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management along with the converged infrastructure of VCE Vblock Systems, customers can realize greater business and IT agility, improve the quality of their operations, and reduce their total cost of ownership. Do it faster, do it cheaper, do it better a winning formula for today s competitive business environment. For more information, please contact 14
