Support for multiple SAP HANA Production LPARs in Scale Out Systems


Our current Scale Out systems such as the L1024 support a large amount of Memory (up to 8TB) however they are limited to up to 4 x Production SAP HANA LPARs

We need this to be increased to at least 8 x Production SAP HANA LPARs in order to be competitive

    Conclusion from the SAP HANA IBM Power team is that this isn't currently under consideration as increasing the production LPARS would cause additional restrictions to be imposed for SAP certification. Also, the SAP Product Manager is not seeing a business need from the field for more than 4 LPARS.
