Migrate from HP-UX

If you feel like your HP-UX environment is running out of steam and the prospect of planning a major migration just to stay current is not your idea of fun, you aren't alone. Many HP-UX customers have migrated to IBM, taking advantage of the platform flexibility offered by true cross-platform Linux support.

IBM offers Linux solutions that span every hardware platform, providing meaningful flexibility for workload placement when moving away from HP-UX. IBM can provide a broad range of implementation options, from providing just the components to a full migration with financing.

Case Study

MEVA, an international construction company, gains a resilient virtual solution after migrating their worldwide SAP environment from HP-UX to Linux on VMWare, running on mirrored IBM System x3650 servers.

Kurt Rentschler, Chief Information Officer, MEVA, stated, “Co-operation with IBM was very good, providing a high level of know-how and immediate access to the in-depth technical resources of both IBM and SAP. Based on our excellent experience of this smooth migration, completed within short timescales, MEVA would certainly choose IBM Global Business Services for future solutions.”
