Setup S/4HANA 1610 IDES On-Premise – Part I

We installed our first SAP S/4HANA systems – IDES S/4HANA 1610 in premise. To setup this environment we purchased 2 Servers of following configuration.

◈ DELL PowerEdge R730
◈ Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2650 v4 @ 2.20GHz
◈ SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP3
◈ 2.5 TB Hard Disk allocated for SAP Application Server and 5.5 TB for SAP HANA DB
◈ 256 GB RAM in SAP Application Host and 512 GB RAM in SAP DB Host
◈ VMware ESXi 5.5 SP3 on SAP Application Host
We installed SAP ABAP Instance on Virtual host and SAP HANA DB on Physical host

OS installation was performed with the option of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications

Sizing


SAP has provided the sizing consideration for IDES S/4HANA (SAP Note 2445594)

– HANA Appliance RAM 256GB minimum (Comfortable Sizing)

◈ data                 3  x Memory
◈ log                   1 x Memory
◈ shared/Trace    1x Memory

– HANA TDI RAM 256GB minimum (Reduced Sizing)

◈ data                 1-2  x Memory
◈ log                   0.5 x Memory
◈ shared/Trace    1x Memory

However I sized both the systems on the higher side, so we can create multiple SAP instances in future for our learnings.
