Keynote part 2
Posted by martijnl on February 24, 2009
After Paul Maritz his keynote we are now looking at a presentation from SAP about their use of VMware in their infrastructure. The statistics here are impressive with a total of 8000 VM’s and 340TB of daily(!) backup.
Based on the internal demands SAP have been able (by using VMware solutions) to split their virtual machine provisioning into two service levels. With their internal solutions they are able to cater for both the volume business and the specials.
By building their own cloud and building out a virtualization provisioning system they are able to transparently provision a machine foruse evn by external service providers.
