New world-record performance set with HP AppSystems for SAP HANA (multi-node) performance benchmark

Written by guest blogger: Jodie  Jordanger


In September 2013,  HP AppSystems for SAP HANA (single-node), posted world-record performance results, marking the #1 result on the SAP Netweaver BW-EML standard application benchmark with an unbelievable 129,930 ad-hoc query navigation steps with 1 billion initial records (certification 2013027).  


If that weren’t impressive enough, HP has just delivered another astonishing SAP Netweaver BW-EML standard application benchmark (SAP certification #2013037), this time on HP AppSystems for SAP HANA (multi-node/scale-out).  


The result:128,650 ad-hoc query navigation steps on 3 billion records!  That’s 3x the number of the single node, while maintaining the same performance (no performance degradation on HANA) – all completed within an hour.  This capability is notable, and extremely important to customers who need a highly scalable, mission-critical environment that can access vast amounts of data delivering outstanding, scalable analytic performance in seconds versus hours on massive, multi-dimensional databases.  


HP AppSystems for SAP HANA (scale-out) is the first enterprise-class real-time analytics solution optimized to run massive SAP business application workloads while offering a completely automated failover mechanism for high availability. It includes industry-leading HP ProLiant BladeSystem BL680c servers and is supported by two storage offerings.


How did we do it?

  • Experience – 500+ HP AppSystems for SAP HANA worldwide deployments delivering speed-of-thought analytics
  • Knowledge - HP knows the solutions it implements for its customers. HP works closely with SAP to optimize SAP HANA not only for HP customers, but for its own HP IT datacenters as well.  
  • Execution - It’s not just what HP can do – it is also important how HP implements the solution. HP works closely with its customers to bring the best out of both. It creates offerings in support of SAP HANA solutions that are just right for customers’ organizations, helping them quickly attain business value from their business intelligence environments.


Why do we do it?

HP continues to push boundaries and surpass expectations for SAP HANA again and again.  It’s done it in the name of our HP customers.  It’s done it in the name of innovation and customers can rest assured that HP is always at the forefront of ‘everything’ SAP HANA.  Whether it’s a new server/storage configuration to meet customer requirements, a new platform to accelerate processing speeds, a next generation server that’s like nothing the industry has ever seen, or a performance benchmark that blows away the competition, HP has done it, and will continue to do it, as the leader and trusted advisor for SAP HANA.
