Sweet, Simple and Explosive? Suite on HANA, Simple Finance, and a cool explosion video as a bonus!

Guest Blogger: Swen Conrad


The recent parallel announcements of SAP Simple Finance and HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA motivated my blog about the increasing business value of Suite on HANA and the ability to run such a mission critical system in a low risk fashion.


The blog covers following topics in good detail:

  • SAP Simple Finance The blog explains the new SAP Simple Finance solution, the “trick” that it is using and the resulting business and IT benefits.
  • Customer Example: HP ITTo put the move to SAP Business Suite on HANA into perspective, the blog gives a glimpse into the data sizing and preparation underway within the HP IT team.
  • HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA It also talks about the breakthrough HP ConvergedSystem 900, the largest and most robust of its type with up to 12TB of RAM in a single system.
  • SAP HANA Datacenter readiness Most importantly, the blog busts any doubts that SAP HANA is not data center ready. With a broad offering of high availability and disaster recovery offerings from HP and other vendors, business continuity of SAP HANA is ensured; if need be in a fully automated fashion.

And the explosion? – A video shows a live datacenter failing over to a remote site within seconds, triggered by a small load of TNT.
