Deploy and Manage SAP HANA with Simplicity and Scalability

For decades, customers have trusted their mission-critical workloads to run on Lenovo’s ultra-reliable, high-performing platforms. Now Lenovo offers businesses with SAP HANA deployments an opportunity to reap the efficiencies and cost savings of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) powered by Nutanix Enterprise Cloud software.

By migrating SAP landscapes and SAP HANA workloads from complex, multi-tiered legacy architectures to hyperconverged clusters, customers can enjoy the simplicity, scalability, and cost-savings of HCI, which consolidates storage and compute into a single virtual pool with a simple management interface. At the same time, hyperconverged customers can leverage their existing IT to deploy SAP HANA with the same streamlined results.

Engineered and optimized for SAP HANA, the Lenovo ThinkAgile HX solution for SAP HANA 1U and 2U 4th generation Intel Xeon 2-socket platforms, delivers extreme speed, availability, and data-center efficiency for SAP HANA workloads in hyperconverged clusters while the 4U 2nd generation Intel Xeon 2- or 4-socket platforms can handle the largest virtualized SAP HANA databases. All solutions come backed by Lenovo Professional Services so you can rely on Lenovo’s deep SAP expertise to deploy SAP HANA with confidence.

Developed in close collaboration with Lenovo's long-standing partners, SAP and Nutanix, the Lenovo ThinkAgile HX solution for SAP HANA includes:

  • Mission-critical performance and ultra-reliability of Lenovo’s platforms married with the dramatic efficiency and cost savings of the industry-leading Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS
  • Factory-integrated, validated, and configured with preloaded Nutanix software on Lenovo HX platforms, using best-recipe firmware
  • Lenovo Professional Services deployment of SAP HANA software onsite for a seamless customer experience
  • 24/7 Lenovo ThinkAgile Advantage Single Point of Support, plus SAP HANA solution support from Lenovo's SAP experts

Deliver Greater Reliability

Successfully running SAP HANA analytics workloads requires outstanding performance and 24/7 availability, plus easy scalability. Businesses that can accomplish this with minimized operating expenses and footprint can gain a long-term advantage over their competition. You can't do any better than Lenovo for reliability.

As an SAP HANA market leader, Lenovo has teamed with SAP for more than 30 years and has shipped more than 50,000 SAP HANA systems. Lenovo's deep heritage with SAP translates into a seamless customer experience — from initial planning and architecture through deployment, lifecycle management, and support.
