Important SAP Notes about Virtualization

Quick update because I don’t have so much time available lately, days pass and it is getting difficult to have some time to write a new post. SAP decided to send some information to my email when downloading or consulting specific information from Support Portal. I leave you some information related virtualization of SAP systems and applications.
