(FutureFuel) Provisioning in 30 minutes instead of 8 hours. (Checkpoint Systems) Availability & Disaster Recovery: As high as 99.99% uptime (NuVasive) Recovery of core business systems can be completed in two hours. (ABB Grain) Operational Costs & Improved Service Levels: Lifecycle management of VMs on 600+ VMware ESX hosts (SAP Global IT) 14% reduction of SAP operation cost.(vms AG) 30-40% cost savings (T-Systems) 81% IT infrastructure cost reduction (C. Rob. Hammerstein) 75% CO2 savings = 510 tons per year (Rehau) 21 VMware & SAP: Joint Customer Successes Around the world, top-tier companies have successfully virtualized SAP. 22 Case Study: Future Fuel Chemical Company Business Challenge: Build an easily managed, high-availability infrastructure to support SAP ERP and develop it cost-effectively in just four months using VMware infrastructure. Results: Performance: Mission-critical applications, including SAP ERP, run smoothly with high availability Mitigated Risk: The company s data center is about 90% virtualized Improved Service: New servers are created within minutes, instead of hours or days required for physical servers Lowered TCO: Major savings on hardware and maintenance, including $100K on the labor costs of developing a SAP solutions-based infrastructure The consultants working with us on our SAP implementation never knew we were running everything on VMware because virtualization didn t present any problems. At the end of the project, one consultant asked how I was able to add servers and make memory upgrades so quickly, I confessed: I m not really working harder, just smarter thanks to VMware. - Senior Engineer, FutureFuel Chemical Company 23 Real World Application at BASF IT Services VMware and SAP Virtualization Assessment Service Challenge: Assess whether virtualized disaster recovery site for SAP, while running a traditional physical production environment, would be flexible enough to use during normal operations. Result: Determined that virtualization of SAP for DR environment was not only possible, but would meet the customer s requirements using VMware technologies. It was extremely valuable to our organization that VMware and SAP jointly delivered an aligned concept for both the application and the infrastructure. I am very satisfied with the result and am confident that this concept gives us the chance to implement a DR site which will ensure the safety of our business requests. - Harald Wickenheiser, BASF IT Services 24 SAP s Internal Cloud Runs on VMware We have a very good strategic relationship with VMware and with operational support, that s necessary with challenges often more complex than in traditional settings. Dr. Wolfgang Krips, SVP Global IT, SAP SAP s global infrastructure is 80% virtualized, running 25K VMs Private cloud houses all critical app servers and supports its entire training business and development systems Storage reduction up to 62% on virtualized server environment on regular database volumes TCO of a virtual servers is 50% of physical In 2010 virtualization saved 10M EUR in operating costs and over 75m KWh of power consumption 25 Their Cloud, Their Business: SAP Deploying VMware has enabled us to eliminate the two-month delays that our business clients often experienced before gaining access to a piece of testing hardware, while ensuring we can optimize performance for databases and applications.
