Oracle engineers are always testing and experimenting to see how you might get the most performance bang for your buck. We've known for a long time that Oracle Solaris Containers can provide a real opportunity for performance and efficiency improvements – but your mileage may vary, depending on the application and overall architecture. So, they decided to take a look to see if users of SAP NetWeaver Master Data Management could consolidate the SAP NetWeaver Master Data Management server and database server, or multiple SAP NetWeaver Master Data Management servers on a same physical server and to document the associated best practices. This is documented in detail in Deploying SAP NetWeaver Master Data Management on Oracle Solaris Containers.
This paper provides a lot of background information, including the essentials of Oracle Solaris Resource Management, an overview of the SAP NetWeaver Master Data Management Architecture, testing setup details, and (of course) test results. This is an essential paper for those responsible for setting up or tuning similar application environments. Don't miss it!
