SAP HANA with VMware vSphere on System x for Production Environments
Deliver fast, agile, and resilient performance for virtualized SAP HANA production environments
Today, IT is called upon to do more than ever. No longer just responsible for running an efficient and reliable IT department, CIOs are increasingly responsible for enabling the new products, services and business processes that will drive future competitive advantage for the entire business. In fact, a global survey of CIOs confirmed that business intelligence/analytics, cloud and enterprise resource planning (ERP) were three of the top five CIO technology investment priorities—with business intelligence/analytics leading the way.
To succeed in this demanding environment, you must have ready access to actionable information. And as data continues to grow exponentially, your environment must be able to scale performance, manage big data efficiently and operate reliably without adversely impacting virtualized loads. This requires more than just servers, storage, hardware and software tools—it calls for an all-encompassing solution that meets these increased demands in a holistic, solution-based manner.
Together, VMware®, SAP® and Lenovo® have developed a comprehensive solution that delivers on the promise of IT as a strategic business resource, and will help you compete more effectively in today’s business environment.
