SAP AG (NYSE:SAP) and HP (NYSE:HPQ) have joined forces to deliver a preconfigured version of SAP's Business All-in-One solutions on HP's BladeSystem and ProLiant servers. The new turnkey solution will also include SAP's MaxDB database based on SUSE Linux Enterprise from Novell.

The HP BladeSystem c3000 running SAP Business All-in-One integrates computing, networking, management, power and cooling, storage and data protection within a cost-effective, user-friendly enclosure designed specifically for midsize businesses. The modular design simplifies setup, operation and change management, while intelligent tools and built-in management interfaces provide efficient remote solution management.

"The combination of advanced HP BladeSystem technology with SAP Business All-in-One creates a simple, affordable and reliable solution that delivers high availability and performance at low costs," Urs Renggli, director, of HP's worldwide small and mid-market business, said in a statement.
