Applicability of Systemcopy as a Service
Possibility of manual intervention in case of delta import
As mentioned above, an SAP system copy created for updates is a special use case of homogeneous system copy. Here, a production system represents the source and a non-production system with a specific long-term task in the SAP system landscape represents the target. The most common update scenario involves updating a QA system in the SAP transport system.
One to two pre-tests are required, one of which should be performed on the production system. The additional load on the production system caused by the IMIG has been negligible. Split/mirror techniques allow many actions to be moved from the production machine to another machine.
SAP system/instance move
After shutting down the target system, the technical system copy for upgrade 1 can be created at the infrastructure level. To automate the creation of the technical system copy for upgrade, HP System Copy can be used for the following steps.
To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
Acceleration/table export: up to 4 times faster. The larger the table and the higher the effort for sorting, the greater the time gain during export.
From now on, this will be easier. "Shortcut for SAP Systems" contributes to a time-optimized execution of this complex process, no matter when and at what frequency, and while maintaining a high degree of flexibility even in changing environments.
To do this, you need development, consolidation, and quality assurance (QA) systems that can provide the appropriate updates to the production system as SAP transports.
For this reason, when defining the processes around system copy and, if necessary, also when selecting tools for automation, care must be taken to ensure that these also map data anonymization in accordance with the GDPR.
