For most customers, the journey for SAP HANA usually starts with a sidecar implementation, then graduates to Business Warehouse (BW) workloads, before eventually moving to ERP, CRM applications—or, in other words, Suite on HANA (S/4 HANA).

 

HP has made strategic investment in HANA and we have several HANA-optimized Converged System appliances to help accelerate time-to-deployment of these systems along with best practices and years of expertise designing and deploying these systems. And at SAPPHIRE in May, we announced modern data protection for SAP HANA with the introduction of new HP StoreOnce plug-in for SAP HANA. The plug-in is a HANA BackInt agent installed directly on SAP HANA nodes which enables direct streaming backups to StoreOnce deduplication appliance. This BURA Sunday, I’m breaking down the benefits of StoreOnce plug-in.

The first is an all-new HP StoreOnce plug-in for SAP HANA. The second is the expanded capability of the HP Storage Plug-in for SAP LVM to now support SAP LVM 2.1. Today I want to tell you more about how plug-ins streamline and accelerate backups and clones for increased data protection and productivity.

 

 

HP 3PAR StoreServ All-Flash crushes EMC XtremIO for SAP HANA TDI

One full year after the 3PAR StoreServ 7450c all-flash certification for SAP HANA Tailored Data Center Integration (TDI), EMC has announced its first XtremIO certified configurations. While this XtremIO result has a nice headline around 20 HANA node scaling. . . that's where EMC’s right to gloat begins and ends. HP 7450c all-flash solutions for SAP HANA beat XtremIO on capacity, drive counts, footprint, power, cooling, weight and price. And that’s only part of the story.  

Think flash can’t accelerate SAP HANA? Think again!

Earlier this year, HP certified the industry’s first all-flash array for SAP HANA tailored datacenter integration (TDI) with the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450. Following on this leadership, we have now certified the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7200 All-flash Starter Kit as a TDI-certified configuration with as few as eight SSDs for a three HANA server node configuration. ALL HP 3PAR StoreServ arrays—from the smallest 7200 array to the largest 10800—are now certified for SAP HANA TDI.
