Virtualize SAP on Nutanix
SAP Classic landscapes and S4/HANA application servers are the ideal candidates for virtualization in a web-scale private cloud environment. Learn how to gain benefits such as the ability to handle rapid performance and data growth, consolidation of datacenter footprint, and predictable licensing costs.
“We haven’t found any workload that doesn’t run better on the Nutanix platform. As a result, we are exiting the traditional SAN environment over time as we end- of-life our current platforms and tear out the Fibre Channel infrastructure. We plan to be a Nutanix-only shop going forward—I see no reason to use anything else.”
Chris Cate, EVP and CIO

Nutanix AHV hypervisor and Enterprise Cloud OS software can be leveraged for development, testing, and non-productive SAP HANA databases and is in the process for validation in scale-up deployments. Nutanix and SAP are continuing testing for production SAP HANA databases with targeted solution availability later in the year. HANA database instances will be supported on Intel Skylake-based hardware platforms once Lenovo and Dell EMC complete those certifications.
Nutanix platforms use Intel® Processors in state of the art platforms delivering excellent performance for demanding workloads.
