By Manoj Suvarna - Director, Product Management, HP Converged Systems


With SAP’s recent release of SAP Business Suite core applications powered by SAP HANA, customers can now realize a real-time business transformation, supported by an in-memory platform.   


In-memory platforms represent a huge technological shift in the way companies deal with data because it enables the processing of massive quantities of real-time data in the main memory of the server to provide immediate results from transactional and operational data.  This transformative innovation, however, would not be possible without the technology enablement and software innovation offered by companies like HPand SAP.    


SAP has officially certified HP 2 TB and 4 TB systems for Business Suite powered by SAP HANA based on the HP ProLiant DL980 server and these will shortly be available for customer orders.   For customers that wish to get started immediately, HP offers a range of single-node server configurations ranging in capacity from 128 GB to 1 TB RAM.
