What is the migration process?
If the SAP HANA database on your x86-based server is HANA 2.0 and you want to migrate to a HANA 2.0 database on an IBM Power Systems server, then all you have to do is a simple backup and restore of the SAP HANA database onto the new server.
If the SAP HANA database on your x86 appliance is HANA 1.0 and you want to migrate to a HANA 2.0 database on a IBM Power Systems server, then a simple backup and restore will not work. Because of the technical difference between HANA 1.0 and HANA 2.0, we strongly recommend the SAP HANA Migration Workshop conducted by the IBM Lab Services Migration Factory, which will give you the necessary information to develop the best-fit solution.
The IBM Lab Services Migration Factory helps businesses assess and design migrations from other server and database platforms to IBM Power Systems servers. It also helps clients reduce the costs and risks of migration with a proven process, specialized tools and many years of migration experience.
