  • If your organization has decided to move to SAP HANA, the IBM Power Systems platform helps you do it faster, easier, cheaper and more effectively.
  • SAP certifies IBM Power Systems to host multiple instances of SAP HANA in Linux partitions alongside AIX or IBM i.
  • Migration doesn’t have to be disruptive—a “coexistence” strategy lets organizations run existing AIX, IBM i and Linux workloads while gradually transitioning to SAP HANA with IBM POWER8 servers.
  • IBM Power Systems servers can seamlessly take an SAP HANA deployment from sandbox testbed to production.
  • SAP licenses IBM Power Systems servers to run SAP HANA using the Tailored Datacenter Integration model, which means clients can deploy on existing infrastructure rather than buying dedicated SAP HANA appliances, giving your organization greater flexibility.
  • IBM partners, tools and services will make migration as simple and pain-free as possible.
