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. And for SAP Business Warehouse and data mart implementations, you can easily create multi-node scale-out configurations by networking multiple nodes together enabling support for larger SAP HANA memory sizes. 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 enables you to plan for disaster recovery situations by replicating your SAP HANA production data to a second datacenter location. Non-production environments can be optimized using VMware virtualization technology for single node environments enabling you to support multiple SAP HANA virtual machines on single certified system.

Easy deployment, operation and maintenance

IBM Systems Services and qualified IBM Business Partners offer fast implementation and on-going maintenance of your SAP HANA solution. If you choose to have IBM manage the systems for you, 24 x 7 managed services are available from IBM Systems Services. In addition, IBM Total Solution Support can provide 24 x 7 support for your SAP HANA solution1.
