In most use cases involving flash storage deployments, the business environment changes, driving a need for higher-performance storage. However, the case of Epic Systems Corporation software is the opposite—the storage requirements haven’t changed recently, but the options for addressing them have.
Epic, a privately-held company founded in 1979 and based in Verona,Wisconsin, makes applications for medical groups, hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Epic software typically exhibits high frequency,random storage accesses with stringent latency requirements. IBM has been working with Epic to develop host-side and storage-side solutions to meet these requirements. Extensive testing has demonstrated that the combination of IBM® POWER8™ servers and IBM FlashSystem™ storage more than meets the performance levels Epic recommends for the backend storage supporting its software implementations—at a cost point multiple times lower than other storage alternatives.
In this webinar, you will learn about the availability of SAP HANA across the entire IBM Power Systems line with pre-sized IBM POWER8 configurations that are optimised for SAP HANA, highly available/disaster recovery options for SAP HANA on Power Systems deployments, and systems management solutions to maintain the SAP HANA systems. You will also hear client use cases on why they chose to implement their SAP HANA solution on IBM Power Systems..
With the rise of cloud computing and mobile technologies the desire would be to have a LAMP stack that can be optimized for dynamic scale out as well as scale up virtualized infrastructures that can take advantage of the capabilities of the latest POWER8 architecture from IBM and its OpenPOWER partners. Building upon the collaboration gained with POWER8 and the OpenPOWER Foundation, IBM is uniquely positioned to deliver a more robust and high performing stack by working with key component providers while still allowing interchangeability of the components.
