SAP System copies giving you headaches?
When you are managing an SAP landscape, you need to be able to create new systems without having to stop the operation. You don't want to struggle for disk space every time you create a system, nor do you want to wait days for copies or refreshes to finish. And the refreshed systems need to function properly together. Most companies have no option but to copy the whole system, and so have designed their landscapes around this.
Client Sync™, part of the Data Sync Manager™ suite, solves this challenge, and enables a much more agile landscape.
Client Sync allows you to copy only the subsets of information you need from a working system. This has impressive advantages: it reduces the new client's footprint and saves valuable disk space – up to 90% – which means your costs are drastically reduced.
You can also refresh data frequently without interrupting the landscape, using our proprietary high performance, asynchronous parallel processing. Recently, a Client Sync copy averaged 85GB an hour across the duration of the Sync! In the first hour we frequently see over 100GB transferred.
Client Sync will automatically include referenced transactional data that lies outside your selected time period, which means that all dependencies remain intact in the new client, and your data is consistent. Customers have the choice to turn this off when creating sandbox clients.
At times like these, a new production system needs to be created. Call in our consultants to help you with your System Landscape Optimization (SLO) project. Client Sync has the enterprise-slicing functionality needed to split the system at company code level and it's also useful for system mergers. Visit our SLO page to find out more.
