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

"The robust and proven FUJITSU ETERNUS DX storage technology is positively predestined for SAP HANA environments. We benefit from very fast load times, which ensures high system performance."

Bernhard Lingner Service Management Siemens AG GS IT

Fujitsu has developed and implemented a high-performance infrastructure for SAP HANA systems at Siemens AG Global Services Information Technology (GS IT), based on ETERNUS DX storage solutions.

The customer

Siemens AG (Berlin and Munich) is a global technology powerhouse that has stood for engineering excellence, innovation, quality, reliability and internationality for 170 years. The company is active around the globe, focusing on the areas of electrification, automation and digitalization. In fiscal 2018, which ended on September 30, 2018, Siemens generated revenue of 83.0 billion euros and net income of 6.1 billion euros. At the end of September 2018, the company had around 379,000 employees worldwide.

The challenge

Siemens is one of the first companies to migrate a large part of its SAP landscape to SAP HANA. To do this, the company group needs an infrastructure consisting of high-performance storage systems and enterprise servers.

The solution

Working closely together with Siemens, Fujitsu developed a suitable infrastructure as the hardware base for the SAP HANA systems (HANA Power Block) and implemented it at Siemens. Powerful FUJITSU ETERNUS DX600 storage solutions and FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY systems form the heart of the solution.

The benefit

  • Stable and high-performance operation of the SAP HANA architecture
  • Fast load times and high throughput rates of the ETERNUS DX600 systems
  • Flexible and rapid capacity expansion, thanks to a high degree of scalability
  • Snapshot-based provision of test systems in just a few minutes, regardless of size
  • Easy provision of self-services, thanks to standardized infrastructures
