Efficiently Deploying SAP Landscapes on the IBM PureFlex System

This paper provides an overview on how SAP landscapes consisting of the SAP NetWeaver technology layer, SAP Business Suite applications, and complementary SAP modules can be deployed on an IBM PureFlex System. This paper focuses on the IBM POWER processor-based units (IBM POWER nodes) hosting the classical SAP core components, but it also describes how complementary x86-basedIBM PureFlex System units can be integrated for specific SAP scenarios, for example, query accelerators, and still maintain a unified systems management. Typical use cases for IBM PureFlex System-only landscapes are described and also some comments are about the integration of an IBM PureFlex System with existing SAP customer infrastructures are explained in this paper.
