Developed by Fujitsu in close cooperation with Microsoft Corp. and integrated with SAP applications, FlexFrame on Windows for SAP solutions running on Fujitsu x86 PRIMERGY servers brings powerful adaptive computing to customers. The introduction of a Windows Server-based version dramatically extends the addressable market for FlexFrame, already deployed by hundreds of companies around the world in Linux-based environments.
Now customers running SAP solutions on Windows Server, based on SQL Server technology, can also take advantage of FlexFrame, which provides a flexible, enterprise-class environment for the entire portfolio of SAP applications– including SAP ERP, SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM), SAP Supply Chain Management (SAP SCM) and SAP Product Lifecycle Management (SAP PLM).
FlexFrame is a complete eco-system, which uses intelligent, dynamic resource allocation to continuously optimize fully-virtualized SAP solution environments, making better use of system resources. This is possible through high availability of entire systems running SAP solutions – including servers, virtual machines, storage and networks.
Customer installations demonstrate that Fujitsu FlexFrame solutions deliver savings of up to 60 percent in the total cost of ownership (TCO) of infrastructure running SAP solutions. Improved IT infrastructure utilization cuts capital expenditure, while operating costs are reduced by requiring fewer physical servers per installation, all of which are administrated automatically.
Business operations that depend on SAP applications are underpinned by FlexFrame’s built-in high availability, avoiding the complexity of managing and maintaining third-party tools for SAP solution-based environments, and making it easier to ensure compliance with Service Level Agreements (SLAs). FlexFrame on Windows for SAP solutions also provides an ideal foundation for cloud computing environments, since it meets the key cloud requirements of system flexibility, efficiency and reliability.
FlexFrame on Windows for SAP solutions from Fujitsu is scheduled to be available for global order later in 2012 and is planned to ship to the first customers in Germany this autumn. Pricing and support varies according to individual implementation.
Jens-Peter Seick, Senior Vice President, Product Development Group at Fujitsu Technology Solutions
“Hundreds of customers around the world already count on Fujitsu’s FlexFrame for SAP solutions to help ensure that their IT systems are flexible and agile enough to meet ever-changing business needs. Fujitsu is now bringing the efficient management of consolidated environments within reach of a fast-growing market of companies that are implementing SAP solutions based on Windows Server and x86 servers, managed by ServerView Resource Orchestrator software.”
Thomas Schröder, General Manager, Enterprise and Partner Group, Microsoft Germany
“Customers who are already enjoying the cost savings of running enterprise computing applications on Windows Server platforms can now also take advantage of Fujitsu’s FlexFrame on Windows for SAP solutions. The combination of infrastructure and application management fits well with Microsoft’s private cloud strategy for business-critical applications.”
Kevin Ichhpurani, Senior Vice President, Ecosystem & Channels Team, SAP
“SAP customers have been leveraging capabilities of Fujitsu’s FlexFrame infrastructure on the Linux platform very successfully. We’re happy to see that Fujitsu has expanded its offering to support Windows, which is a benefit to our joint customers. Furthermore, through our co-innovation efforts, Fujitsu will also be able to deliver integrated SAP-specific management capabilities.”
