SAP SYSTEM COPY - in a nutshell
SAP system/instance move
An SAP system copy usually includes both the copy of the database and the copy of the file systems that contain the SAP system. There are several ways to create a system copy of an SAP system, depending on the type of database and operating system used.
In order to check whether the usable settings are correctly adjusted, especially in the case of large databases, the runtimes are automatically logged during the BDLS. Based on these results, it is possible to analyze how the runtime can be further optimized. By the way, BDLS reports and optimization options are displayed in the BSC GUI, including modification options.
Scenario with system copies for updating
Security-conscious companies usually keep their mission-critical IT infrastructures redundant anyway. Storage systems are usually secured in disk arrays by multi-level raid, spatially separated from each other and networked by a storage area network (SAN). Connected to this are at least two computers, also spatially separated. One of these acts as a backup system.
As a rule, the SAP basis has to fulfill: to provide SAP system copies as quickly as possible for the increased usage purposes. The performance of modern tools has developed rapidly. An assessment of the current situation.
