Businesses are leveraging IBM Power Systems and Linux to consolidate multiple SAP workloads onto fewer systems, increasing infrastructure utilization, reliability, availability, serviceability, scalability, and reducing cost.

This IBM Redpaper publication describes key hardware and software components of such SAP solution stack. Furthermore, this book addresses non-functional items like reliability, availability, serviceability and security, and issue handling. Practical help for planning, implementation, configuration, installation and monitoring of such a solution stack are provided.
