IBM PowerLinux Solution Edition for SAP Applications

Affordable single system SAP environment for midsize businesses, supporting up to 500 SAP users


Finding the right balance between your IT budget and the performance you need is a difficult challenge. You rely on your SAP solutions to help make better business decisions, but your IT budget is likely under pressure. You need to keep all costs—acquisition, software licensing, management and maintenance, and energy—under control.
