Technical Whitepaper: Best Practices for Virtualizing SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.x on VMware ESXi 5
SAP has traditionally provided guidance in the form of presentations, webinars, and online forums, but customer feedback has been that more formal official guidance is required. This need is deeper than just a list of recommendations, BI teams also require validation of these recommendations in order to have a constructive dialog with the IT teams that maintain their BI system's virtualization infrastructure. This whitepaper focuses on validating SAP's recommendations for deploying SAP BusinessObjects BI 4 systems in virtual environments. The content of this document is based on a series of tests performed in the SAP Co-Innovation Lab (COIL) in partnership with VMware and Supermicro.
