Challenges in Virtualizing SAP

Here is an interesting blog post on the challenges and opportunities in virtualizing SAP. A recent Aberdeen Group survey indicates that only 31% of SAP deployments have been virtualized so far. When SAP users were questioned about the reasons for not moving to a virtualized infrastructure for supporting SAP, four key areas of concern were mentioned:

  • Uncertainty as to the ROI (40%)
  • Fear of harming performance (40%)
  • Security (27%)
  • Lack of resources to conduct the transition (27%)

Being one of the few VMware Ready and SAP Ready certified products in the market, eG Enterprise is uniquely qualified to address the performance management needs of virtualized SAP infrastructures. For more information, visit
