Transition smoothly to next generation SAP ERP with Integrity Reference Configurations for SAP

More than 1,000 SAP deployments worldwide—including some of the biggest SAP instances—run mission-critical SAP environments on HP Integrity. As SAP applications become more CPU-, memory-, and disk-intensive, the HP Integrity platform steps up to offer customers the necessary performance and scalability to meet tomorrow’s SAP application needs. HP Integrity offers you choice and flexibility—from operating system to method of deployment and partner selection.

With HP's new Integrity Reference Configurations for SAP, we simplify and speed the transition from your existing environment enabling you to take the first step in readying your infrastructure SAP ERP 6.0. HP Reference Configurations cut through the clutter by recommending the number and type of HP servers, storage products, and applications that would be required to support SAP ERP 6.0 at a company of your size. You can be confident that your infrastructure will be sized, configured, and balanced to meet SAP requirements.

The Integrity Reference Configurations for SAP were designed and built by the HP SAP Competency Center in Walldorf, based on years of SAP sizing and implementation experience. Many customers have implemented their SAP environments based on standard configurations designed by HP. They range from 300 users to 1800 users (Windows and Linux ); up to 2500 SAP Power users (HP-UX).

They are built on standard HP Integrity products, rx2660BL860c, rx3600, rx6600 servers—with EVA and other types of storage, running HP-UX.

Whatever part of the business you're responsible for, you'll be ready for a whole new generation of business tools that can integrate processes across business units and connect the enterprise more efficiently. This all means better relationships with customers, suppliers, and partners. HP´s new services for SAP will help you secure the future of your enterprise with a stable infrastructure during and after your move to SAP ERP 6.0.

Why choose HP Integrity servers for SAP

  • HP can deliver continuous SAP availability with HP Serviceguard extension for SAP: HP Serviceguard maximizes single- and multi-system availability and supports geographically dispersed customers for industry leading disaster tolerance.
  • You can do rolling upgrades and isolate faults without bringing down the entire system: the crossbar architecture of HP Integrity servers running HP-UX reduces outages and allows for online maintenance and upgrades.
  • Industry-leading disaster tolerance is available for all operating systems.
  • HP Integrity servers beat competitors’ performance in real-world customer benchmarks.
  • Some of the world’s largest SAP installations run on HP Integrity: companies like Pirelli (PDF, 300KB) trust HP Integrity to run their mission-critical SAP installations.
  • You can deploy entire SAP stacks on HP Integrity servers quickly and safely using HP-UX.
  • Application stacking saves resources for the largest and smallest SAP environments.
  • Virtualization tools are integrated and automatic: the HP Virtual Server Environment in HP-UX offers scalability and capacity on demand, thereby meeting the needs of enterprise SAP applications with fewer resources.
  • You don’t need multiple servers to run SAP instances on different operating systems: HP Integrity’s electrically isolated hard partitions allow native instances of SAP for HP-UX, Microsoft Windows, Linux and OpenVMS to run on the same server. This allows greater process control and flexibility.
  • Moving SAP from HP 9000 PA-RISC is a simple transition that delivers big returns: Because HP delivers data compatibility and a common release of the HP-UX 11i operating environment on both HP 9000 and HP Integrity platforms, the transfer to HP Integrity servers requires no data migration. This means the transition to Integrity takes hours instead of days.
