Ravello Systems Partners With Intrigo Systems to Enable Rapid Prototyping and Testing of SAP in the Cloud

Ravello Systems, the industry’s first Cloud Application Hypervisor provider, today announced that it has partnered with Intrigo Systems, an SAP implementation organization. This partnership will bring ease and simplicity to enterprise SAP development and test processes. It will allow instant replicas of existing on-premise VMware-based SAP application environments to be deployed on Amazon Web Services (AWS) or other leading public clouds without making changes to the virtual machines (VMs) or networking.

Ravello Systems enables enterprises to instantly clone and deploy existing multi-VM applications in the public cloud. By adding a solution specifically for SAP landscapes, it is addressing a critical pain point for IT managers, DevOps practitioners, SAP architects, and VMware and SAP administrators who need rapid prototyping, development and testing of SAP business applications. The technology provides a way to save SAP blueprints and spin up these existing landscapes on AWS via self-service – resulting in the rapid prototyping of functionality, faster testing of upgrades and patches. The efficiency of having instant replicas of on-premise SAP landscapes creates new advantages including:

  • Prototype projects – Introduce new Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) systems and test new functionalities.
  • Sandboxes – Complete or partial landscapes can be created for a specific need and in turn can be easily discarded.
  • Training – Create landscape replicas instantly for training and run them for only as long as needed.
  • Upgrade Integration User Acceptance (UAT) testing – Upgrade one or multiple systems in the landscape to assess the implication before an upgrade project or new feature implementation.

“The increase in complexity of SAP environments requires strategic solutions that are both fast and efficient in order to support the pace of business innovation,” said Prabhakar Prasad, VP of global sales and marketing of Intrigo Systems. “For organizations to innovate rapidly, the public cloud is a promising platform. To reap its benefits, we saw the need for solutions that can provide an easy way to replicate the on-premise customer SAP landscapes onto the cloud. For this reason, Intrigo Systems partnered with Ravello Systems to come up with a self-service one-click clone and deployment methodology for existing SAP landscapes on the cloud. Customers can benefit by leveraging pay-as-you-go cloud infrastructure while allowing IT to focus on higher value tasks and business critical processes.”

“Amazon’s public cloud offers unique cost efficiencies and infinite resources for businesses, but even with these benefits, the complexities of migrating unique business applications to the cloud has driven up overall risks and costs for enterprises,” said Shruti Bhat, director product marketing, Ravello Systems. “Ravello’s technology addresses these concerns and our partnership with Intrigo now offers a way to leverage the resources of an AWS environment and spin up instant replicas of existing SAP landscapes that will ultimately reduce costs and free up time for IT.”

A joint webinar on how to create instant replicas of on-premise SAP landscapes on AWS will be held on Thursday, January 30 at 1 p.m. PST. To sign up, go to: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/9054588561492632066?source=PNREM1

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.
Serveless Architectures brings the ability to independently scale, deploy and heal based on workloads and move away from monolithic designs. From the front-end, middle-ware and back-end layers, serverless workloads potentially have a larger security risk surface due to the many moving pieces. This talk will focus on key areas to consider for securing end to end, from dev to prod. We will discuss patterns for end to end TLS, session management, scaling to absorb attacks and mitigation techniques.
CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure.
"We do one of the best file systems in the world. We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Traditional IT, great for stable systems of record, is struggling to cope with newer, agile systems of engagement requirements coming straight from the business. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, William Morrish, General Manager of Product Sales at Interoute, will outline ways of exploiting new architectures to enable both systems and building them to support your existing platforms, with an eye for the future. Technologies such as Docker and the hyper-convergence of computing, networking and storage creates a platform for consolidation, migration and enabling digital transformation.
