The servers, designed
for midmarket companies, go the extra mile to being self-contained solutions by
baking in Novell SUSE.
SAP and Intel are
knitting together their software and hardware, announcing Xeon-run servers
rigged up with SAP software for midmarket
companies in manufacturing, service and trade.
The Intel-SAP offering, which SAP
announced at CeBIT on March 4, will include SAP's
business management software and servers running on Intel's Xeon
processors. The offering will include a variety of hardware running Novell's
SUSE Linux Enterprise
relational database management system.
The product, aimed at midmarket customers, which SAP
defines as 2,500 users or less, will help companies reduce costs, reduce time
to deployment and drive adoption of integrated business solutions, said
Hans-Peter Klaey, president of global SME (small and midsize enterprises) at SAP.
