I’ve personally written several blogs highlighting the performance, features, capabilities and solutions on Lenovo X6 servers, but what's more important is what actual clients have to say about them. Below, I’ve highlighted three clients that are using the top-of-the-line Lenovo x3950 X6 servers, which can be configured with up to eight processors and 12 TB of memory.
Kwizda Group is a life sciences enterprise headquartered in Vienna, Austria. As instant, real-time insight into business performance becomes increasingly important across all industries, Kwizda Group wanted to gain a competitive advantage and be able to make better business decisions. Kwizda implemented SAP HANA multitenant database containers running on Lenovo System x3950 X6 servers with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications. In doing so, the company can use a single solution for its three SAP applications—SAP Business Suite, SAP Business Warehouse and SAP Extended Warehouse Management—complete with separate development, test and production databases.
Bruno Larcher, Kwizda Manager of Infrastructure and Support, said, “By moving to SAP HANA and the Lenovo System x3950 X6 solution for SAP HANA, we have gained a future-proof solution that helps us turn business data into competitive advantage.” Bruno also talked about high level of service, “We know that we can rely on the Lenovo team for help. With Lenovo Solution Support for SAP HANA, we have a single point of contact for both hardware and software, ensuring that we get the right support for our IT infrastructure at the right time. Our Lenovo services include an annual ‘health check’, as well as microcode and release management. By moving to SAP HANA and the two Lenovo System x3950 X6 workload-optimized solutions for SAP HANA, we have gained a future-proof solution that helps us turn business data into competitive advantage. Based on accurate data in real-time, we can make business decisions quicker and respond faster to changing demand trends.”

With more than 25 years of experience, Unistar PRO is one of Slovenia’s leading IT services providers. To adequately support its new Unistar PRO cloud solution for SAP HANA and ensure high availability of the service, Unistar PRO recognized the need for a new infrastructure solution that would provide high levels of performance, reliability and scalability.
After evaluating offerings from Dell, IBM, Fujitsu and HP, Unistar PRO chose to implement a Lenovo x3950 X6 solution to support its new SAP HANA environment. David Bevc, Unistar PRO Head of Cloud Solutions, recalls, “During the assessment period, our SAP advisor highly recommended Lenovo System x servers for running SAP applications—and for SAP HANA in particular. Running SAP HANA on Lenovo System x gives us a strong competitive edge in both domestic and foreign markets.”
Choosing a System x solution from Lenovo also gave Unistar PRO increased reliability, enabling the company to offer its clients a minimum of 99 percent up time and system availability in its service-level agreements. Bevc said, “Reliability is critical... The highly reliable Lenovo servers give us great peace of mind that our clients’ SAP HANA services will run uninterrupted 24/7."
