SAP on eNlight Cloud
Hosted SAP Gets eNlight
SAP on eNlight is increasingly becoming popular amongst most business types– small scale as well as large scale. Two reasons for its popularity are- Dynamic Resource Scaling Technology and Real time cost-savings. The new pay-per-use and hosted model of SAP is designed to provide enterprise SAP solution to small and medium sized companies with very low upfront costs, unlike the traditional way of investing huge amount into the IT hardware and SAP licenses before setting up the SAP application. This means that the customer is no longer required to buy any IT hardware or the software licenses for being a part of the SAP world.

Save Your SAP Cost
Pay on a monthly basis for the number of user accounts and amount of RAM+CPU consumed in that particular month. Good for customers who certainly do not have too many users and occasionally consume high number of resources
Pay only for the SAPs used to run the application. Ideal for customers who have high number of SAP user requirements, but operate small-sized databases or applications which do not require a lot of computing power
We build your Hosted SAP Model on Fujitsu’s Flex Frame in combination of other providers like HP & DELL. Flex Frame is a platform explicitly designed for the hosted SAP Business Suite. With Flex Frame, Fujitsu are the first to provide an adaptive platform for SAP computing, while being compliant with SAP technology.
Special Bots Maintaining High Uptime for Your SAP Application
For maintaining high uptime, we have your SAP hosted in a special technology environment. Special bots/ applications are installed on each hardware component. These bots are Autonomous agents which are further bifurcated into control agents and application agents. Collectively, they monitor the functionality of hardware as well as software to ensure high availability of the solution. The agents have special powers to intervene in case of a failure and make the required changes. It is thus a proactive automatic repair, enabling you to get rid of all known/ unknown problems instantly. A few intervention mechanisms used by Autonomous agents-
- Check health of the service; restart it in case of errors.
- Check health of nodes; restart / reboot node in case of errors.
- In case of critical errors, move operations to another node and restart / reboot / shutdown the former node
- In case of severe damage, Power-Off the node
- Prioritize services if needed.
- Start and stop services whenever they are required or not required.
Your business has dual benefits on the Hosted SAP Solution – Cloud Technology & eNlight’s Pay-Per-Use.
Especially for SAP, ESDS uses cloud technology where we integrate Fujitsu’s Flex frame in combination with enterprise hardware providers like Dell and HP to ensure high reliability for a complex SAP infrastructure. eNlight’s high scale environment is achieved by going through a major configuration paradigm shift in SAP infra technology. See how-
SAP servers are configured to boot over the network using a shared operating system
- Insertion of SAP virtualization by decoupling of application and operating system
- Allowing SAP database to get attached to either shared or dedicated storage
- Provision of a revolutionary mechanism through Autonomous agents for the implementation of high availability function without any cluster services.

Disaster Recovery Solutions from eNlight
Cut every chance of failure, cost-effectively.
Cost of a DRaS for Hosted SAP/ ERP is almost negligible. How we do this for you is “Use feature rich storage systems.” The features as well as the functions integrated with the storage systems used in the Hosted SAP/ERP landscape make it very simple to offer a cost effective and reliable Disaster Recovery Services.
Cut every chance of failure, flawlessly.
To achieve the highest level of data accuracy on the alternate site, a solution using storage subsystem-based or real-time host-based mirroring is implemented in combination with eNlight.
Normally a host-based mirroring is recommended for a cross-site SAN configuration, as it ensures the availability of data on both the sites and that data is accessed via virtualization layer which makes it transparent to the application to pick up the actual copy to be used.
The DRaS can be configured using any of the recommended storage providers however, irrespective of the adopted solution (EMC and NetApp), a detailed operations guide is being created varying from customer to customer, their configuration and requirements. Every solution that is designed for a customer can behave differently during different failures or disaster. There are ways where AUTO DRaS is configured whereas there are solutions in which human interference is required and the fallback is also a manual process. It is more defined depending upon the nature of the requirement.
It’s the back bone of your hosted SAP application. Having a comprehensive IP network is mission-critical. With ESDS’s solution, you get a dedicated internal network connection between server and storage, which not only communicates between servers and clients comprehensively but also provides IO blocks from the SAN to respective servers. For security reasons, no external traffic is allowed to go through the internal network. By default the client traffic is routed through the external network. The internal network with the hosted SAP infrastructure is redundant to ensure reliability. All the internal and external ports are connected through a 1Gbit / sec for all hardware components to handle high data traffic. The connection from NetWeaver application server to storage is connected at 10Gbit/sec.
The failover for network failure is very intelligently handled on the hosted SAP environment. The term "LAN Failover" defines the ability to use a logical network interface that consists of more than one network adaptor or ports, which is again connected to multiple network paths. Whenever there is network hardware failure, the network management logic switches to the secondary available path via a network adaptor or port. When both the ports in one single NIC fail, then the failover to another server is initiated.
The infrastructure is also configured with different virtual LAN within the application with 2 switches to ensure performance and high availability. VLANs are further distributed in :
- Client LAN
- Control LAN
- Server LAN
- Storage LAN
