SAP systems run on physical computing resources with virtual host names: Installation sources on central storage system De-coupling of software and OS through use of virtual host names Flexibility (start, stop, relocate) on application level Partners provide libraries with their technologies: OS (AIX, HPUX, Linux, Solaris, Windows) Storage (NFS, Fiber channel, iSCSI)

SAP systems run on virtual computing resources: SAP installation within virtual machine template or de-coupled from the OS (“according to adaptive concept). High flexibility: Virtual machine based (live) migration Relocate across physical & virtual servers Collaboration currently with the following partners: VMware, IBM, Novell
