The main arguments of our customers in the pro-cloud decision are the dynamics and flexibility with which temporary systems in the cloud can be set up and dismantled – at least from an infrastructure perspective.
Providing a SAP test system quickly
Administrators face certain challenges when it comes to mapping the infrastructure level as well as the application level. In many situations, providing such a system for the DEV, QA, or SBX role out-of-the-box is a greater effort than “just” setting up a server. Thus, the problem shifts from the previous “I don’t have enough hardware…” to “I don’t have time right now…”, and experience shows that this is not a satisfying answer for those departments that insist on urgency.
So, what can you do to raise this real or perceived service level, while avoiding unnecessary discussions? This is where a cloud-optimized automation solution, such as Libelle SystemClone, can be an approach.
System rebuild at the press of a button – within the cloud or into the cloud
Libelle SystemClone maps the entire end-to-end process of a system rebuild based on an existing source system. It does not matter whether source and/or destination are on premise or on cloud, meaning all possible combinations can be mapped without any problems.
Clone2Cloud is based on our solution Libelle SystemClone (LSCL) . This enables the automated execution of SAP system clones to build new non-productive SAP systems (SBX, etc.) based on existing environments.
For Clone2Cloud, the standard LSCL process (as it is frequently used on-premise by our customers) has been extended by cloud-specific additional tasks. Thus, systems used in the cloud can be adapted automatically. Depending on the progress of the system clone, for instance, the CPU performance and other parameters are dynamically changed and reset to the initial values after completion. Classical activities here are the task groups around the BDLS or TemSe, as well as the export/import tasks, which can be massively parallelized. This results in significant runtime minimization and a corresponding faster response to requests for new sandboxes from departments.
Always included: Anonymization according to data protection law (GDPR)
It is not just since the DPA came into force that anonymization mechanisms have become an increasingly essential part of the creation of system clones for development or testing purposes. Libelle SystemClone, in combination with Libelle DataMasking, enables a consistent anonymization of data. The results are realistic values with which developers, analysts, external, and training participants can work.
