Many organizations are struggling to turn growing amounts of data into business value. They
are looking for ways to do this rapidly and affordably. SAP HANA running on SUSE Linux
Enterprise Server for SAP Applications on IBM® Power Systems™ can give organizations the
tools they need to compete effectively in the world of big data.
SAP HANA is an in-memory database that provides much faster results than traditional
relational databases. By running SAP HANA on IBM Power Systems, a platform designed for
the high performance and scalability demands of in-memory workloads, organizations can
give business users reliable access to mission-critical data analytics.

Linux to run on Power Systems servers. By using key features of both SAP HANA and the
Power Systems platform, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications gives
organizations a highly-available, cost-effective way to tackle their big data challenges.
