ERP Like SAP cross platform (OS/DB) migration
This service will help customers to Migrate an SAP system to another hardware platform, another operating system, and another database. WFT will analyze and design an optimal plan specific to client’s specific SAP landscape and help migrate to new platform with minimal downtime. – Please refer to SAP Migration section for more details.
ERP Storage Layout
WFT’s Data Layout service translates the unique performance and capacity characteristics of each individual file system (ERP Data, Indexes, etc…) and maps them directly to the SAN/NAS storage array. Landscapes can range from dozens to hundreds of servers. This translates to the potential of having a total number of file systems that can reach into the thousands. ERP specific metrics like SAPS or IOPS for each component are taken into consideration in designing this layout so that each component resides on the appropriate storage tier.
ERP Automated System Copies – Just few days and no more does it take weeks
ERP and Infrastructure administrators can spend countless number of weeks per year performing the necessary procedure of an ERP System Copy. WFT Automated System Copies allows for the creation of job streams that automate not only the infrastructure components, but also all of the direct GUI Pre/Post Processing steps—saving weeks of manual effort. This automated process removes the need for human dependencies and potential human errors.
WFT’s Landscape Replication for ABAP & J2EE solution, integration of infrastructure and NetWeaver tools help achieve landscape replication in a fraction of the time with zero source system downtime thus saving time, valuable resources and money.
ERP Performance Assessment
Many landscapes experience degradation in overall performance, especially as the landscape grows in capacity and concurrent users. Performance Optimization solution evaluates all the critical components of the SAP or Oracle infrastructure, from data layout to database SQL tuning and all layers in-between, to pinpoint the bottlenecks and determine whether an individual component reached it’s performance limit.
The uniqueness of this solution lies in the fact that the analysis is done at a specific point in time across all the layers in the I/O stack starting all the way from the application down to the disk spindle in the storage array.
