This high-performance and easy-to-manage plug-in is the perfect enabler for SAP NW LVM 2.0.  It includes automation capabilities that reduce the time to clone SAP applications, which in turn helps reduce the overall SAP system clone/refresh time. The ability to automate this cloning step as part of the end-to-end clone/refresh scenario can help improve business agility while reducing risks associated with manual provisioning.
