Dealing with Big Data is a journey not a pitstop. It requires vision, planning, and addressing all the different business applications associated with analytics, reporting, enterprise data warehousing, etc. If you're considering SAP HANA as part or all of your solution, this "SAP HANA 101" series can help you understand what it is, what it does and what HP has to offer in way of solutions. In this first article, Doug Janes gives you some background on SAP HANA to get you started on your journey.
You’ve heard the term ‘Hybrid Cloud’, but what really is it, why now and what value does it bring to your business, and what are business and IT leaders thinking about it?

Transforming scale-up x86 computing, the HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA provides a single platform to run the industry’s largest mission-critical SAP HANA workloads, while helping clients reduce costs and improve response time to meet business demands. But it doesn't end there. HP's recent SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM benchmark results on the new HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA running SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3 for SAP Applications show 2X higher performance over the competition for scale-up SAP HANA environments.

It’s already been a week since I was at HP Discover in Las Vegas, and as typically happens I get back to the office...it already appears a year has gone by. I did promise myself to send out a post that summarizes the event and provide video and session links that have now become available. So before another year...opps I mean another week, here is an update.
Helen Tang - the HP Converged Infrastructure WW Solution lead - joins the conversation with other independent bloggers regarding the importance of converged technologies in our new world.

Greater simplification and automation through integration. That’s what HP and VMware are delivering.
The recently released HP OneView for VMware vCenter allows you to combine the operations management capabilities of VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite with the powerful infrastructure lifecycle management and automation of HP OneView. Now users can manage physical as well as virtualized server, storage and networking resources from a familiar VMware console while automating many routine activities. This saves time and reduces risk.
A lot of blogging are raising questions about why ‘purpose-built’ systems? The fact is, it’s really all about the application. End users and business stakeholders couldn’t care less about the technologies. However, with applications coming in different flavors, there is not a one size fits all approach - nor should there be for the underlying infrastructure.
I think sometimes we forget why we do what we do. This blog is about taking a ‘time-out’ and ‘remembering’ that IT is all about the value-delivered in the daily lives of the businesses it serves. HP Converged Infrastructure is all about helping you achieve that.

The two industry leaders in virtualization, HP and VMware, have announced another significant step towards making the vision of IT-as-a-Service and the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) easier to achieve and manage. They’ve integrated HP OneView with the VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite. Now users can manage physical as well as virtualized server, storage and networking resources from a familiar VMware console while automating many routine activities.
The goal of IT-as-a-Service and SDDC is to make the infrastructure adaptable to the users and applications. This requires a higher level of control and automation over both virtualized and physical resources. HP OneView acts as an infrastructure automation hub for your enterprise. This is the first part of two blog posts that will explain some of the great benefits achieved when you combine VMware vCenter Operations Manager with HP OneView. Read on to learn more...

I wanted to amplify a recent blog HP Discover Blogger Roll Call that a colleague of mine from HP Storage - Calvin Zito posted yesterday. His blog covers the industry bloggers that will be with us next week at HP Discover.
HP Discover starts in FIVE DAYS. Are you ready? All that is left to do is plan your list of “MUST SEE’ convergence-focused demos. That’s where this blog will help.
Those of you following me have read about the new family of purpose-built HP ConvergedSystems we fondly call HP “Sharks”. This new Systems approach was launched last year in Barcelona (HP Discover 2013), and the Sharks portfolio has been well received by customers and press alike because it reduces maintenance and increases innovation in the datacenter.
