4 Introduction Mission-critical business applications and workloads continuously and quickly move at unpredictable levels, causing resource requirements to suddenly shift from one department to another, or from one application to another. In response, IT must rapidly scale up and scale down resources such as server availability. In physical environments, IT over-subscribes resources to meet peak resource demand. Managing physical environments in this manner creates computing silos without the ability to share, offload, or take advantage of all available resources in a time of peak demand. Some applications may be starving for resources, while others are often extremely underused. Better resource management is needed to alleviate the problem, ensure optimal use of resources, and maximize business responsiveness. The Vblock Solution for SAP Server Elasticity provides a virtual environment that addresses these issues. Vblock Systems provide a robust, scalable, and virtualized converged infrastructure that IT organizations can efficiently scale, enabling them to effectively manage and allocate resources to meet changing resource requirements and workloads in SAP environments. Solution overview The Vblock Solution for SAP Server Elasticity enables IT organizations to better manage and allocate their converged infrastructure resources (compute, network, storage) by: Quickly provisioning SAP Advanced Business Application Programming (ABAP) application servers. The solution uses methods of cloning existing SAP ABAP application servers, and uses a customized script to set up new working SAP application servers. This greatly reduces the time required to provision new SAP application servers. Work that previously required days or weeks to complete now takes only minutes. Applying best practices for optimizing virtual machines for SAP Adaptive Computing Controller (ACC) management on Vblock Systems. The solution describes how to set up SAP ACC to work with VMware vcenter. It also describes how to automate the prerequisite steps of preparing a virtual machine for use with SAP ACC, accelerating deployment and reducing complexity. The solution includes tools to automate the upgrade and migration processes and ensure these processes remain low-risk to business continuity. These tools support processes for both migrating an SAP deployment to Vblock Systems and migrating an SAP application from one virtual machine to another. Solution benefits include: The best-in-class compute, networking, storage, and virtualization components A fully virtualized environment with the inherent efficiencies and flexibilities of VMware Flexibility to scale-up and down with business demand to meet peak and valley SAP requirements 4

5 Load sharing and balancing of resources among multiple users for higher efficiency and utilization Improved SAP service and operations that help reduce IT operational costs About this document This document describes how Vblock Systems and SAP application server elasticity enables IT departments to quickly and efficiently scale and manage SAP resources to meet rapidly changing requirements. Results from two validations tests are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of Vblock Systems with SAP application server elasticity. The purpose of this paper is to show how to: Quickly provision SAP ABAP application servers. Apply best practices for optimizing virtual machines for SAP ACC management on Vblock Systems. Key findings demonstrate that: Using the VCE ABAP quick provisioning method, the total provisioning and deployment time is reduced to 5 to 7 minutes to present a live working SAP ABAP application server. Minimal administrative intervention is now needed to complete this task. Packaging best practice preparation steps for optimizing virtual machines for SAP ACC management speeds the process, compared to all the traditional efforts, and makes the operational tasks easier. Additional features such as impact analysis are provided. These features demonstrate impacts from the application perspective, providing useful input for decision-making. Audience This paper is intended for administrators and architects, as well as technical engineering staff, IT managers, IT planners and other IT professionals who are evaluating, acquiring, managing, operating, or deploying SAP in a virtualized data center environment. System and network or application administrators, as well as all Vblock Systems existing and potential customers with a current or future SAP implementation, will also benefit from the information in this paper.

11 Solution validation Two use cases were validated in this solution: Use Case 1: Quick provisioning of SAP ABAP application servers Use Case 2: Best practices for optimizing a virtual machine for SAP ACC management on Vblock Systems Use Case 1: Quick provisioning of SAP ABAP application servers The objective of Use Case 1 is the quick provisioning of an SAP application. The steps are shown in Figure 3. Figure 3. Quick provisioning of SAP application servers 11

12 Test environment In the Use Case 1 validation environment, the quick provisioning procedure was set up to run on a Linux OS on Vblock Systems, as shown in Figure 4. An SAP application server clone request set off the quick provisioning process to begin the cloning. An existing SAP ABAP application server was chosen and resources were collected. A pre-impact analysis was performed. Approval was sought, and when it was obtained, the virtual machine was cloned with the designated resource, the virtual machine received SAP customization, and the provisioned SAP application server was started and added to the login group of servers. Figure 4. Use Case 1 validation environment Test procedure The following system screenshots show the steps described in Figure 4. The steps began at the main VCE control web interface: Select SAP Instance Clone Request. 1. For an application in NotActive status, selected Prepare for SAPACC Installation in the Operation column. 12

13 2. On the request screen, completed the source and target parameters for the cloning procedure. Clicked Submit. 3. Ran an impact analysis before committing, for the virtual machines. 13

14 4. Clicked Commit on the request screen. 14

15 The cloning status was displayed. 5. A confirmation was displayed. The cloned and provisioned application server was added to running server group. 15

16 16

17 Use Case 2: Best practices for optimizing a virtual machine for ACC management on Vblock Systems The objective of this use case was the quick preparation of a virtual machine for SAP application server installation by ACC. The steps are shown in Figure 5. Figure 5. Optimizing a virtual machine for ACC management 17

18 Test environment The quick ACC application server installation validation procedure is shown in Figure 6. The scenario started with creation of a virtual machine from a standardized template. Resources were collected and added, and SAP ACC was installed. Figure 6. Quick preparation for SAP ACC application server on Linux OS Test procedure We used the following procedure to validate Use Case 2: 1. Initiated an SAP instance prepare request to prepare the virtual machine for SAP ACC installation. 2. Clicked the link to the SAP ACC URL. 18

19 3. Selected the Configuration tab. 4. In the Found Resources section of the screen, in the Action list, clicked Auto Assign to Pool. 5. The Advanced Resource Selection screen showed the new virtual machine available as a resource for ACC installation. Clicked Go. 19

20 6. The ACC installation proceeded. Validation results This section lists the validation results for each use case. Use Case 1 results Figure 7 compares the validation results to traditional SAP application server installations. The validation shows that with the new automated solution, the time taken to clone, provision, and put into service a new SAP application server is reduced to minutes, rather than hours and days, and that human intervention is rarely necessary during this process. 20

21 Figure 7. Installation with VCE technology, compared to the standard SAP application installation. Additional benefits include: Speed: A typical SAP ABAP application server was added within 5 to 7 minutes, compared to the traditional method in which it takes days to add the server. Easy-to-use GUI: All user interaction was HTTP web-based. There is no need to directly access vcenter. Convenience: The traditional tasks for SAP application server installations are packaged into one action. All the NFS mounted file systems (FS) were automatically carried over from the source application server. Only approval and confirmation require human intervention. Consistent configuration: The target SAP application server carried OS configuration and kernel patches and SAP application server configuration identical to the source. This consistency significantly reduces human error, compared with the traditional method. Pre-analyzed impact: The impact analysis that must be performed before taking action provides a way to guarantee the specified SAP application server capacity is met, and that there is little impact on existing servers. Use Case 2 results The quick SAP application server installation by ACC provides the following benefits: Convenient: The virtual machine creation with desired capacity specifications and necessary preparation tasks, such as FS creation and mounting, group and account creation, Java installation, and so forth, for ACC are done in a packaged method. 21

22 Consistent: By using a standard template or cloning an existing SAP application virtual machine, the new SAP application virtual machine carries OS configuration or kernel patches that are identical to the existing ones. An impact analysis before action: Provides a way to guarantee that the specified SAP application server capacity is met, with very little impact on existing servers. 22

23 Conclusion The Vblock Solution for SAP Application Server Elasticity enables IT organizations to efficiently scale operations in order to effectively manage and allocate their compute resources to meet changing resource requirements and workloads in the SAP environment. The solution enables pre-provisioning SAP ABAP application servers in an automated process that requires minimal human intervention. This is an important innovation, as it provides IT with more time for other tasks, and very importantly provides instant access to already provisioned SAP ABAP servers. The solution enables very quick scale-up when additional servers are needed, and scale-down when demand is low. When scaling down, the servers can then be used by other applications concurrently in a demand situation where more capacity is needed. The solution also provides packaged preparation steps for readying virtual machines for SAP ACC management, greatly reducing management and operational time and effort. The two validations performed for the Vblock Solution for SAP Application Server Elasticity demonstrate the following results: Using the VCE ABAP quick provisioning method reduced the total operational time to a 5- to 7- minute time range, compared to work that formerly required hours, days, or weeks using traditional provisioning methods, to present a live working SAP ABAP application server. Minimal administrative intervention was needed to complete this task. Packaging best practice preparation steps for optimizing virtual machines for SAP ACC management speeded up the process, compared to traditional efforts, and made the operational tasks easier. Additional features such as impact analysis were provided. These features helped by demonstrating impacts from the application perspective, providing useful input for decision making.
