IBM is launching new SAP-certified bare metal servers for SAP HANA platform deployments in the IBM Cloud and new configurations for VMware environments that will give enterprises the power and performance they need to manage their mission-critical applications running on SAP HANA.
IBM’s newest cloud infrastructure for SAP HANA solutions on the IBM Cloud is designed to provide clients with larger and more powerful infrastructure to run memory-intensive applications running on SAP HANA.
Specifically designed for larger workloads running on SAP HANA, the new solutions are certified by SAP to reassure clients that their production and test systems are running optimally in IBM Cloud and are backed by both IBM and SAP support teams.
The new solutions include new SAP-Certified bare metal servers for SAP HANA deployment on IBM Cloud and SAP-certified Solutions for Deploying SAP HANA on VMware on IBM Cloud.
“To win in this arena, enterprises need a cloud platform that can help them maximize their core business applications and gain new insights from increasing volumes of data,” said John Considine, general manager for cloud infrastructure services, IBM. “IBM is building more powerful and cost-effective solutions for SAP HANA applications in the cloud so that enterprises can focus on business innovation instead of underlying infrastructure.”
With IBM’s global network of nearly 60 cloud data centers in 19 countries and six continents, clients can scale globally to run their workloads on SAP HANA on IBM’s public cloud infrastructure when and where they need.
IBM Cloud also provides access to more than 150 APIs and services including IBM Watson and analytics. The new solutions are designed to help clients co-locate their development, test and production environments for applications running on SAP HANA, speed deployments, and increase utilization.
