The Benefits of Running SAP Solutions on IBM eX5 Systems


SAP is the maker of one of the world’s most popular inter-enterprise software suites. It provides collaborative business solutions for all types of industries. The company’s flagship offering is the SAP Business Suite, which includes solutions for enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), product life cycle management (PLM), and supply chain management (SCM).

This IBM® Redpaper™ describes the benefits of running SAP on the IBM System x® and IBM BladeCenter® platforms, including the IBM eX5 flagship systems, the x3850 X5 and BladeCenter HX5. We first introduce the SAP offerings, then we explain the processes involved in correctly sizing an SAP platform and the tools and resources available to make the best decisions. We also review the hardware offerings from IBM both for systems and for storage and networking. We also describe suitable hardware solutions. Finally, we discuss the advantages of using IBM high-performance platforms for running SAP solutions.

This paper is for SAP administrators and technical solution architects. It is also for business partners and IBM employees that want to know more about SAP offerings and available IBM solutions for SAP customers.
