SAP HANA
ON IBM POWER SYSTEMS

INFRASTRUCTURE YOU CAN TRUST

LEVERAGE THE UNMATCHED FLEXIBILITY, RELIABILITY & PERFORMANCE OF IBM POWER SYSTEMS FOR YOUR SAP HANA WORKLOADS

Nothing has shaken up enterprise IT quite like SAP HANA. SAP HANA is a high-performance in-memory database that accelerates data-driven, real-time decision-making and actions, and supports all workloads, with the broadest advanced analytics.

SAP HANA takes on the role of not only a database, but also a platform and technology. Its unique speed enables quick access to useful data and Business Intelligence with real-time analytics, which is a significant competitive advantage. SAP HANA can transform and streamline businesses to keep up with the changing digital economy.

For SAP HANA deployments to be effective, the workloads require robust, scalable multisocket server architecture. The IT platforms must also provide the flexibility to run multiple, mixed workloads, expand system capacity, and deploy SAP HANA across all environments.

WHY NOW?

If you use SAP’s (ERP) software, and you’re not using SAP S/4HANA, you’re on a deadline. A deadline that was recently extended to 2027, but still, the clock is ticking. 

SAP will continue to offer support for its ERP software until this clock runs out. But then support will cease, and those businesses that want support from SAP will need to migrate to SAP’s flagship ERP software, S/4HANA. 

Described by SAP as its “biggest launch in 23 years, possibly ever”, this new ERP suite will run exclusively on SAP’s own database, HANA. Previously, SAP’s software worked with a number of databases, including Oracle, but businesses migrating to the new system will also need to migrate their entire database. 

2027 may seem a long way off but migrating to SAP HANA requires considerable changes to not only your hardware, but also the way your databases are configured.   

If you are considering SAP HANA, there is never a better time to speak to Advent One to get an understanding of what it can do for your business, what hardware is required for migration and how it can be achieved simply and effectively.
