29 Only supported for Training/Demo/sandbox scenarios with SAP Connectivity to SAP systems in Azure goes through internet VMs in Azure not part of on- premise domain or DNS Restricted communication between systems in Azure and on-premise Not typical for production systems SAP Deployment on Azure - Non Domain Joined topology

30 Supported for Production SAP systems in Azure On-Premise AD/DNS extended into Azure On-premise and Azure hosted SAP systems in same domain Communication between SAP systems in Azure and on-premise transparent to application/users SAP Deployment on Azure - Domain Joined topology

31 Additional Hybrid topologies Supported: Distinct Test/Production Systems in different premises NOT Supported: Application layer and DBMS layer in different ‘locations’


33 VM Sizing Azure Virtual machine Services offers a different number of VM SKUs representing a combination of: vCPUs, Memory, Number of VHDs to mount Network and I/O bandwidth SAP configurations running on-premise might need to be changed due to: Available CPU/Memory resources different than what is used on-premise More database files can be required due to different IOPS per LUN/VHD in Azure

34 Questions you want to ask: Does single largest component of SAP system fit within the largest certified Azure VM (usually DBMS) in regards to CPU and memory requirements Is there an Disk I/O intensive component of SAP system that would exceed Disk IOPS quota of a single VM Are high availability needs for the SAP application single-point-of-failure require Windows Cluster configuration?

35 Base OS VHD including OS and Executables currently limited to 127GB Non-OS VHDs (data disk) can be up to 1TB in size VHDX format is not supported  On premise VHDs need to be changed to fixed VHDs format Database files need to be located on separate data VHDs Every I/O to VHDs is synchronous and encounters latency between compute node and Azure Storage Server cluster D:\ drive presented in VM is temporary drive of VM which is NOT persisted A-Series VMs: Drive should NOT be used for SAP and DBMS deployments, even not for tempdb or temp tablespace D-Series VMs: tempdb or temp tablespace can be placed on D:\ Drive utilizing SSDs Azure VHDs can be read or read/write buffered NO Buffering recommended for DBMS and SAP deployments, except OS disk

36 Instead of using single VHDs, use Storage Spaces or Stripe Sets for DBMS data files

37 Maximum 100 storage accounts per Azure Subscription Think about Azure Storage Accounts as SAN like Devices with a specific number of IOPS and I/O volume See also: limits/#storagelimits limits/#storagelimits Can support up to 40 VHDs per storage account DO NOT distribute VHDs mounted to one VM over different Storage Accounts Deploy VHDs to be mounted to a VM in the same Storage Account as Base OS VHD


39 SAP application layer has a Single point of failure with CI/ASCS/SCS where two processes are critical for whole system SAP uses Windows Server Failover Cluster for HADR Azure does not support Shared Disks as necessary for configuring WSFC configurations, 3 rd party solutions providing Storage replication can be used

40 DBMS: DBMS methods should be used to perform backups of databases SQL Server use native backup directly to Azure Storage (see next slide) SAP instances: Usually customers are not backing up data of simple Dialog Instances since there is no important data stored in the file system. Can re-install if necessary Use Windows backup to backup SAP directory tree in the VM that contains ‘central’ SAP instance Windows Server 2008 R2: Use local backup against VHD mounted to VM. Eventually un-mount and mount to other system to restore Windows Server 2012 (R2): Use Windows backup to backup against Windows Azure backup vault

41 DR configuration with Azure Site Recovery DBMS layer: Use asynchronous DBMS methods like AlwaysOn, DBM, Oracle Data Guard, etc SAP dialog instance: Use Async Hyper-V replica or Microsoft InMage if on VMWare or on bare-metal SAP CI/ASCS/SCS cluster configuration: 3 rd party storage replication Azure offers Geo-Replication which will replicate data in VHDs from one region to another region Disable Geo-Replication for Storage Accounts containing database files as there is no granular control of failover or synchronization between VHDs Read-Only access to Geo-Replicated files not applicable to SAP scenarios DR for SAP systems on Azure

42 SAP requires Monitoring solution that allows SAP instance running in the VM to get essential data from Azure SAP specific Azure VM extension: Automated deployment via Powershell Integrated with ‘Azure Diagnostics’ and SAPOSCOL Azure Monitoring with SAP systems

43 “Microsoft was telling us what we needed to hear: falling Azure prices, SAP certification, and an onshore datacenter. And we had a very competent partner in BNW that was working very closely with Microsoft and had a proven track record.” Adrian Stagg, Chief Information Officer, SCT Logistics Transportation Firm Ensures Business Continuity by Protecting SAP Systems in Cloud

44 “We are excited that Microsoft IT is moving to Azure. We have seen significant benefits from Azure to date and anticipate that the move will yield additional positive effects. As a First & Best customer, Microsoft IT is working with our Product Team to further refine the offering prior to release, and we believe that Azure will be the best platform for major Line of Business applications such as SAP. The possibilities for Enterprise-level deployment and cost efficiencies are virtually limitless.” Jacky Wright - VP IT Strategic Enterprise Services

45 Use CasesHow Microsoft Azure HelpsHow organizations benefit Make timely changes to SAP workloads by development teams 200–300 times faster infrastructure provisioning and rollout compared to on- premises; faster changes by SAP application teams. Increased agility and the ability to provision instances within 20 minutes with the SAP Cloud Application Library. Fund development and test infrastructure for SAP workloads Supports the ability to stop development and test systems at the end of the business day. Savings of as much as 40–75 percent in hosting costs by exercising the ability to stop instances when not in use. Increase data center capacity to serve new SAP project requests Frees on-premises data center capacity by moving development and test for SAP workloads to Microsoft Azure— without up-front investments. Flexibility to shift from capital to operational expenditures Provide consistent training environments based on templates Ability to store and use pre-defined images of the training environment for new virtual machines. Cost savings by provisioning only the instances needed for training, and then deleting them when the event is complete. Archive historical systems for auditing and governance Supports migration of physical machines to virtual machines that can be switched on when needed. Savings of as much as 60 percent due to cheaper storage and the ability to quickly spin up systems based on need.
