Thinking about a new home for your ERP system? Look at the platform breaking performance records


For many enterprises, the ERP system is at the heart of their ability to operate, and therefore the infrastructure behind it must provide always-on availability and respond quickly to the demands of the business. Today, many ERP systems are deployed in expensive, proprietary platforms, and customers are locked in to these legacy investments because migrating to newer, open technologies may seem too risky. In some cases, customers find that the existing open platforms don´t offer the availability and resiliency demanded by their ERP system, and in others, standard infrastructure can´t scale enough to support their needs.


If you have started the journey to modernize the infrastructure supporting your ERP system, some of the platform requirements you likely have in mind are:

  • Extremely available and resilient, because of the high criticality of ERP workloads
  • Highly scalable and flexible, to be able to grow seamlessly with the business
  • High performing, so IT can respond rapidly to the business demands
  • Cost-effective, as budgets and resources are limited

Last December HP announced Superdome X, a platform specifically designed to address demanding workloads – such as your ERP system – and delivering mission-critical availability on industry-standard efficiencies.


And just recently, Superdome X achieved the #1 16-processor result on the two-tier SAP® Sales and Distribution (SD) standard application benchmark. This is the de facto benchmark to measure performance of the SAP ERP application. This world-record result of 84,000 SAP SD benchmark users and 459,580 SAPS for 16P servers is a proof point of the remarkable power of this platform1.


So if you are thinking about a new home for your ERP system, I invite you to consider Superdome X:

  • Provides mission-critical availability
  • Scales up from 2 to 16 sockets and up to 12TB of memory, in an efficient bladed form factor so you can start small and grow as needed
  • Breaks world records in standard ERP benchmarks and
  • Delivers significantly lower TCO than proprietary technologies
