How You Can Benefit from the Values of IBM Power in Your Journey to SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA

Q&A with Dietmar Amrein

Duration: 60 minutes

More than 10 vendors offer SAP HANA appliances on common Intel x86 architecture or modified x86 with proprietary chipsets to expand the number of sockets.  Since 2015, IBM Power Systems has been certified to run SAP HANA in a tailored datacenter integration (TDI) environment. The SAP HANA on IBM Power Systems solution is the ideal consolidation platform for IBM Power Systems users who are moving to SAP HANA, as well as for existing SAP HANA and SAP Business Warehouse users running on an x86 architecture who are looking to take advantage of the latest POWER8 technologies.

The IBM Power platform gives SAP HANA applications a greater amount of agility and variability than would be possible with an x86 appliance. Additionally, IBM Power offers a mixed workload for SAP HANA, traditional SAP systems, and other workloads with stronger per-core performance to minimize the physical footprint. Up to eight production SAP HANA databases can be supported on a single physical server.

Join IBM’s Dietmar Amrein, SAP HANA Infrastructure SME for Asia Pacific, to learn about specific actions you can take and best practices you can follow to successfully deploy SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA on IBM Power Systems. Get answers to your most pressing questions, such as:

  • What are the advantages of deploying SAP HANA on IBM Power Systems?
  • What considerations are involved in transitioning an existing SAP ERP implementation to SAP HANA in a TDI environment?
  • What are my infrastructure management options, and what are the pros and cons of each?
