“Particularly in challenging R&D environments, organizations are excited about the power of actionable analytics from in-memory computing to transform their business. Fujitsu’s new Virtualized Power Appliance for SAP HANA will streamline the test and evaluation process for implementations of SAP HANA, and underlines our commitment to accelerate and simplify the process of deploying this innovative platform.”
Ray Blanchard, Senior Director, Strategic ISV Alliances at VMware:
“For over 10 years, VMware and Fujitsu have shown leadership in designing solutions that help organizations to lower costs, increase business agility, and ensure freedom of choice. The virtualized Fujitsu Power Appliance for SAP HANA – including VMware vSphere, vCenter and Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX600 S6 servers – is a breakthrough in supporting SAP’s innovative in-memory technology with flexible, streamlined and cost-efficient infrastructures.”
The virtualized Fujitsu Power Appliance option for SAP HANA is based on a Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX600 S6 single-node Rack Server (512 GB Main Memory, 4 CPU sockets, Intel E7-4870 10C/20T), pre-installed with the entire software stack, including SLES 11 subscription for SAP applications, the SAP HANA software and VMware vSphere 5.1.
