Automatic provisioning of SAP HANA Systems running on ETERNUS DX and PRIMERGY

"Together with Fujitsu we have developed a solution for supplying SAP HANA systems to our customers in a standardized and automated manner, in a very short space of time. The cooperation with Fujitsu was excellent."

Dr. Jürgen Droletz, Project Management, Siemens AG GS IT

The customer

Siemens AG (Berlin and Munich) is a global technology powerhouse. The company is active in more than 200 countries, focusing on the areas of electrification, automation and digitization. The central data center of Siemens AG is responsible for hosting and running the company’s business-critical applications.

The challenge

All the SAP systems at Siemens’ central data center were to be migrated to SAP HANA® and additional SAP HANA systems were to be provided. The key requirement for a joint project between Siemens and Fujitsu was the assurance to install the systems quickly and to a high standard in a fully automated manner.

The solution

To meet these requirements, the data center team at Siemens AG entered into a joint project with Fujitsu:

  • The associated detailed technical requirements were worked out together
  • A suitable infrastructure was developed to provide the hardware basis for the SAP HANA systems (HANA Power-Block)
  • A solution for the automated provisioning of a storage infrastructure, including snapshot and clone technology, was designed and implemented

The benefit

  • Rapid provisioning of SAP HANA® systems
  • Low operating costs as a result of increased standardization of the SAP HANA systems and infrastructure with potential sources of error reduced to a minimum
