Many organizations are realizing the financial merits of moving from a HP-UX 11i v2 platform to HP-UX 11i v3 running on HP Integrity Servers over moving to IBM AIX 6.1 running on IBM POWER Systems. A customer case study scenario was developed for migration of a set of mission critical SAP applications from HP-UX 11i v2 to a comparable HP or IBM solution. The analysis used competitive platforms, databases, services, available features, and practices to perform as close to a like-to-like comparison as possible. The analysis was complete in its accounting of costs and benefits, considering all direct costs of migrating from the legacy HP-UX 11i v2 platform to the proposed HP or IBM solution.
