PRIMEFLEX for SAP HANA boosts enterprise application hosting strategy of iSphere Technologies
iSphere wanted to offer SAP HANA® as a hosted service but considered it too expensive to deploy and maintain. It needed to find a flexible, cost-effective platform that could deliver high SAP HANA performance to its local SME customer base.

In the area of the SAP® environment Dexia was due for an investment in a replacement. The five dedicated systems, which covered the 3-level SAP operation, the SAP lead system and a proprietary solution, were amortized and had become outdated. The customer took a long view and chose FlexFrame in order to implement the Adaptive Computing concept of the SAP AG. Dexia now possesses a highly efficient system for the SAP operation. The results were obvious: Resources can be controlled optimally and even at peak load times (like monthly settling of accounts) the scalability guarantees sufficient capacity. The easy to manage system administration is an additional plus.
