Abstract: SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management software is the successor and extension of the SAP Adaptive Computing Controller. This paper focuses on the features and uses-cases provided by SAP LVM together with IBM Flex System Manager and IBM Systems Director managed Power Systems. It describes the IBM infrastructure specifics required to implement and operate an on-premise cloud solution for SAP landscapes. The whitepaper covers a solution stack tested during a proof of concept at the IBM SAP International Competence Center (ISICC). This includes SAP Business Suite 7 on IBM Power Systems using AIX 6 and AIX 7, IBM Flex System Manager, IBM Systems Director, IBM Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager, IBM SAN Volume Controller, and IBM XIV Storage System.
