Simple and seamless scalability

The IBM System x solution for SAP HANA offers unprecedented scalability. Large memory configurations are available for SAP Business Suite, powered by SAP HANA.

This modular approach enables you to invest in a workload optimized solution for SAP HANA and grow your infrastructure as your SAP HANA environment grows. In addition, IBM’s solution integrates high availability with automatic failover features eliminating the need for SAN storage often required in other vendor solutions.

Landscape optimization and datacenter readiness

Synchronous replication using IBM General Parallel File System™ (GPFS™) software can provide automated failover in a disaster recovery situation by replicating your SAP HANA production data to a second datacenter location. Additionally, VMware virtualization technology can be used for optimizing deployment and management of your SAP HANA application environment using virtual machines via a single, SAP HANA certified system.
