IBM eX5 Systems* for Virtualized SAP Environments

Objective
This white paper provides a brief summation of a Proof-of-Concept engagement, conducted at the IBM SAP International Competence Center, in which virtualized SAP applications and realistic workloads were migrated from two industry-leading 86 servers running at near capacity onto a single IBM system 3850 X5 server, demonstrating three times the VM capacity while operating within extremely comfortable utilization parameters. While the study itself had multiple purposes, the objective of this white paper is to show that IBM eX5* x86 platforms are capable of unprecedented VM density in consolidated x86 server environments, running an SAP application landscape consisting of CRP, Business Warehouse (BW) Enterprise Portal, and Process Integration (PI).

Audience
Any IT manager, CIO, systems architect, etc., who is considering an x86-based Windows or Linux infrastructure to run enterprise-scale ERP applications in a virtualized environment will benefit from reading this study. Anyone currently running such an operation with unacceptable constraints will also find valuable information herein, which may lead to discovery of an effective solution.
