The Five Myths holding you and your clients back from migrating to SAP HANA

If either you or your clients have concerns about running SAP HANA on IBM Power Systems, they’re quite easily answered – they’re probably amongst the top five myths preventing you both from implementing the ideal infrastructure for business-critical workloads.

Each myth is addressed in detail in this eBook, ‘Straight Talk – Real Answers: Addressing Your Top 5 Concerns About Migrating to SAP HANA.’

So what are the Five Myths?

  1. IBM Power Systems is more expensive than x86-based servers for SAP HANA workloads.
  2. SAP HANA on IBM Power Systems utilising PowerVM causes complications.
  3. IBM Power Systems supports a different version of SAP HANA to the one used on x86-based servers.
  4. Migrating to SAP HANA on IBM Power Systems from x86-based servers is too painful.
  5. IBM Power Systems doesn’t have any market share for SAP HANA.

Every one of the so-called concerns above is false. The facts are:

  1. The total cost of IBM Power Systems is often lower than an x86 environment for SAP HANA.
  2. PowerVM virtualisation helps to simplify data centre operations.
  3. The SAP HANA code is the same, while the supporting infrastructure enhances workload efficiency.
  4. Migration is painless, with IBM tools and services actually simplifying the process.
  5. Although newer to the market, IBM Power Systems already has over 1,300 clients running SAP HANA on it.

The simple truth is, IBM Power Systems provides the enterprise-grade infrastructure, service and support for your clients’ SAP HANA workloads. To put that another way, SAP HANA is more flexible, more reliable, and runs faster on IBM Power Systems than on x86 platforms.

So don’t let myths hold your client back from benefiting from one of SAP’s most rapidly adopted new technologies; download the ebook here.
