  • SAP HANA on IBM Power (Status: 08/2016)

    Multiple HANA LPARs supported for production on a single server:

    up to 4 dedicated or 3 dedicated and 1 shared pool

    Support for Clustering Support - HANA BW Scale-out(up to 16 nodes / up to 4800 GB each, xfs or Spectrum Scale/GPFS based ESS appliances)

    HANA Platform Edition (SPS11, SPS12 etc.) availability for POWER (at the same time as with x86)

    Non-Production relaxations of the requirements for SAP HANA on IBM Power Servers

    POWER8 and POWER7+ servers allowed

    No restrictions with regards to the maximum memory per HANA LPAR core

    The minimum core count per HANA LPAR is 2, min. Memory is 64 GB.

    HANA LPARS can be run in a shared processor pool running with a performance penalty

    Standard Network Components are admitted.

    SAP HANA LPARS for test, development and quality assurance systems may run in parallel to

    other LPARs (for SAP HANA or other purposes) on a single physical Power Server as long as

    none of the participating LPARs runs a production SAP HANA system.

    Besides xfs also NFS, GPFS and ext3 filesystems are supported.

    Cloud Orchestrator Use Case: Self Service IT Delivery

    Pain Point:

    It takes weeks-months to put a ready-to-run business application system into production with

    many different tools / teams

    LOB creating their shadow IT, by-passing Ops. With no goverance and control

    Customer value:

    Standardization of application infrastructure via multi-tenant catalogbased delivery

    Deliver IT services to LOB in minutes. Same speed as their shadow IT, but in full control.

    Enable choice of best on-premises as well as off-premises clouds: design the service once, deploy


    Cloud Orchestrator Use Case: Self Service IT Delivery


  • SAP and SAP HANA history at client


    Client is using IBM Power servers with Oracle DB and IBM and non IBM storage for a huge number of SAP installations (ca. 500 SAPSIDs)

    Since early 2013 client installed SAP HANA appliances from IBM and HP

    2014: Client installed a SAP BW 4 Node scaleout cluster from IBM

    Client interest about SAP HANA on Power was extremly high, participation in TAE for HoP, installation of HoP in november 2014

    April 2015: end of TAE, Feedback to SAP, RampUp begins and client migrated first SAP SID to HoP

    RfP for SAP HANA infrastructure Q3 / Q4 2016

    HoP installation in a private cloud environment starts in Q1/2016

  • HoP setup from TAE Program @ client: SAP BW on HANA, 1 TB HANA-DB-TDI-Server

  • First experiences from Test & Evaluation Program

    Migration from HANA x86 4 Node Cluster 512 GB (3 active, 1 standby)

    to HANA on Power S824 with 1 TB.

    XIV Gen 3 (without SSD's) as a HANA TDI certified storage

    Migration with standard SAP heterogeneous system copy (migration),

    SAPinst / R3Load

    Installation and SAP migration showed no issues

    For these first of a kind installation you need a Linux specialist

    Supporting SAP Solution Architect (Solar) for this case was Carsten



  • First experiences from Test & Evaluation Program


  • Filesystem layout

    XFS with multipathing

    Minimum of 4 active paths for performance

    Beware of zoning and storage subsystem specifics

    LVM striping required for performance

    Minimum of 4 volumes for each data and log

    Number of volumes should be a multiple of the number of

    active paths
