SAP system clone and copy
Key solution steps
Shutting down and copying virtualized systems, such as VMware instances, requires just a few mouse clicks. VMware is suitable for running multiple training, development and test environments on one physical system. Larger productive systems, on the other hand, are not so easy to virtualize. If users have to shut down the productive system during the copy, the runtime of the operation or the unavailability of the productive system becomes a critical factor.
Often, the development and test systems of an SAP landscape are far removed from the status of the productive systems used on a daily basis: Outdated developments, customizing settings and master data reduce the quality and trustworthiness of test and emergency scenarios. It also becomes increasingly difficult to make reliable statements about the behavior of the production system after changes in customizing.
SAP system copies and the DSGVO
For a long time, manual procedures dominated, supported by SAP (guidelines), in particular by predefined procedures and a large number of checklists. In many places, this was supplemented by scripts created in-house, which, however, only automated partial tasks/processes of an SAP system copy.
The suite idea has established itself here as well as in many other software areas. And for good reasons. In addition, such automation tools are moving even more strongly in the direction of the IT topic of system management.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" you can sustainably relieve your administrators of time-consuming routine activities of an SAP system copy.
An SAP system copy is not done in an hour.
