Sun's N1 Grid Technology Available to SAP Customers

Sun's N1 Grid Technology Available to SAP Customers

Deepening its global alliance with SAP AG, Sun Microsystems has announced the Sun Infrastructure Solution for N1 Grid for SAP Solutions, a mix of products, technologies and services expertise to help SAP customers derive cost savings by further optimizing the infrastructure of its SAP solutions-based environment.

Leveraging Sun's Solaris Operating System and N1 Grid Container technology, dedicated servers located across the Network can be virtually pooled together to help enable customers to manage 'N' computers as '1', and curtail the practice of assigning dedicated servers for a single application.

Sun's Infrastructure Solution for N1 Grid for SAP Solutions, scheduled to be available June 1, includes:

  • N1 Grid technology
    Sun's N1 Grid technology is designed to allow multiple software applications to share a common pool of servers and storage resources. By opening up previously static relationships between hardware, applications, and the operating system, N1 Grid technology enables flexible provisioning of resources so that excess capacity can be available to power other applications in the virtualized Network.

  • Solaris Operating System
    The newest release of Solaris 9 OS builds on Sun's commitment to help customers drive down the cost of operations while delivering higher service levels. Additionally, Solaris Express allows customers begin early usage of new, innovative enhancements coming to future releases of the Solaris OS, including N1 Grid Containers, Dynamic Tracing (DTrace) and a cryptographic framework with process rights management.

  • Sun N1 Grid for SAP Solutions Reference Architecture
    The Sun N1 Grid for SAP Solutions Reference Architecture is a tested, tuned and fully documented implementation of an optimized SAP workload on the Solaris Operating System. Designed to drive out cost and complexity in the data center, the Sun N1 Grid for SAP Solutions Reference Architecture is based on Sun Fire servers, Sun StorEdge arrays, the Sun Java Enterprise System, SAP software and third-party infrastructure products.

  • Proven best-practice and service methodologies
    Sun expert consultants provide services to address all of the project phases in Sun's methodology including feasibility planning, assessment, architecture, implementation, and ongoing management of the environment. Sun N1 Grid Workshop for SAP Solutions, Sun N1 Grid Justification Review for SAP Solutions and Sun N1 Grid Architecture Service for SAP Solutions are three new service offerings in support of today's announcement.

  • SunOne audit and certification
    An audit and certification program to help customers ensure that their IT services meet the requirements for secure, available, and scalable services, and can also meet existing service level agreements.

    When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
