What is SAP Infrastructure?
When SAP was initially created, its core infrastructure was limited to mainframe computers and on-premise servers and only included support for on-premise infrastructure and local data centers.
However, with the rise of cloud-based software in the modern technical landscape, SAP Infrastructure has shifted to include private and public cloud environments, multiple hosting partners, managed service providers, and hybrid combinations of public and private SAP landscapes.
Modern SAP Infrastructure includes all the hardware and platforms that SAP systems run, monitor, and manage on and offers public, private, and hybrid cloud environments to ensure SAP workloads operate as expected, no matter what changes occur within your solution, company, or industry.
Understanding the Architecture of the SAP HANA Infrastructure
The SAP HANA Infrastructure comprises multiple disparate databases, leverages a single host or a group of several hosts to support availability and scalability, and contains a single system ID (SID) and individual database name.
With predefined connections across the SAP HANA system, users can better differentiate between tasks performed at the system level and tasks performed at the database level to improve data management and facilitate better database connection across their entire SAP landscape.
The HANA system architecture also offers the HANA XS advanced application server, layered on top of the HANA database, to provide the platform for managing and monitoring HANA-based web applications across the SAP system.
Leveraging the Potential of SAP Cloud Infrastructure
SAP Cloud Infrastructure is the foundational backbone for hosting and delivering a wide range of SAP applications in a comprehensive cloud-based environment.
Designed to ensure better data availability, scalability, and security, SAP Cloud Infrastructure leverages intelligent business technologies to provide organizations with the computing, storage, and networking capabilities needed to keep up with rapidly evolving standards and requirements over time.
Here are a few critical capabilities of SAP Cloud Infrastructure for business users:
- Seamless integrations between cloud-based SAP products
- Transformative power to respond to customer needs, market changes, and business requirements
- Intelligent connection to improve the management and performance of SAP systems
- Robust software ecosystem for improved cloud computing capabilities
- Modern service offerings and computing architectures
- Reduced total cost of ownership through an efficient operating-expense models
Tapping into the Power of SAP IT Infrastructure Management
SAP IT Infrastructure Management acts as a scalable extension for SAP Enterprise Support customers. And, it offers pre-built integrations with the Application Lifecycle Management solution, making it easier for users to facilitate proactive infrastructure monitoring and manage heterogeneous technical infrastructures.
With the SAP IT Infrastructure Management solution, users can collect, administer, and manage all components of their IT infrastructure, including servers, desktops, printers, and more.
It also enables companies to facilitate agentless collection and comprehensive monitoring of critical infrastructure data, store the collected data in a Configuration Management Database (CMDB), and leverage the integrated CMDB to improve infrastructure visibility across SAP and non-SAP environments.
Here are the core capabilities of the IT Infrastructure Management solution:
- Automated data discovery of the SAP IT infrastructure
- Support across the entire application lifecycle management process
- Allocation of SAP solution elements to individual systems or processes
- Illustration of configuration items (CIs) in SAP Incident and Service Management
- Monitoring and notification functions for network-enabled devices
