Two different partitioning methods are available on PRIMEQUEST systems:
- Physical Partitioning (PPAR):
Divides hardware resources on the level of full system board(s) and IO-Units.
- Extended Partitioning (EP):
This is a function that further divides the hardware resources that have been divided using PPAR. Those partitions can be used independently as servers.
Both partitioning methods are supported for use with SAP software. More information about partitioning can be found here (Fujitsu Server PRIMEQUEST 3000 Series Enterprise Model General Description) and in SAP Note# 2111714. Please also check OS support here and in the HANA section below.
