Lenovo Servers

A range of Lenovo ThinkSystem servers are available for SAP Business One®, version for SAP HANA:

  • ThinkSystem SR630 V3 1U & SR650 V3 2U 2-socket servers with 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors
    ThinkSystem SR630 V2 1U & SR650 V2 2U 2-socket servers with 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors
    ThinkSystem SR630 1U & SR650 2U 2-socket servers with 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors

    These mainstream servers provide high performance processing power, flash storage options and energy efficient features. They have been designed to handle a wide range of workloads such as databases, virtualization and cloud computing, VDI, enterprise applications, collaboration & email, business analytics and big data.

  • ThinkEdge SE450 3rd Gen Edge servers

    The ThinkEdge SE450 is a single-socket server with a 2U height and short depth case, making it suitable for shallow cabinets. It can also be mounted on a wall, stacked on a shelf or placed on the floor like a tower server and can handle continuous operating temperatures from 5°C and 45°C.

  • ThinkSystem ST650 V3 4th Gen servers
    ThinkSystem ST650 V2 3rd Gen & ST550 2nd Gen servers

    These provide the same impressive capabilities as the mainstream rack servers but in tower form-factor. They can also be rack-mounted.

  • ThinkSystem SR950 4U and SR850 2U 4-socket servers with 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors.

    These servers provide mission-critical reliability and best-in-class flexibility and expandability.

Using Intel Xeon Scalable processors and all-flash based SSD technology with the ThinkSystem RAID 9350, RAID 940 and RAID 930 storage adapters or VROC for NVMe, these configurations provide the best performance at optimal cost for your business.

SAP Certification and Options

Lenovo certifications for SAP Business One can be found on the SAP HANA Hardware Directory.

The Hardware Directory lists the minimum Linux operating system used at the time of Business One certification (e.g. SLES 15 SP4 on V3 systems and SLES 15 SP2/SP3 on V2 systems).
Note that this certification also includes support for all subsequent SLES versions throughout the lifecycle of a certification.
ThinkSystem V1 systems are supported for both SLES 12 and SLES 15 - for more information see SAP Note 2592452 (SAP ID required).

SAP Business One version for SAP HANA is supported on all ThinkSystem servers in a virtualized environment using a supported SAP HANA hypervisor, i.e. ESXi.

The ThinkAgile VX series provides VMware vSphere and VMware vSAN support for the platform for SAP Business One version for SAP HANA. All editions including vSphere Essential Kits, vSphere Standard and vSphere Enterprise Plus are supported. For more information see SAP Note 2020657. Any SAP HANA HCI certified server can be used for running SAP Business One version for SAP HANA.

The ThinkAgile HX series provides Nutanix Foundation support for SAP Business One version for SAP HANA with the AHV Acropolis and ESXi hypervisors. For more information see SAP Note 2836729. Any SAP HANA HCI certified server can be used for running SAP Business One version for SAP HANA.
