HP has reached another milestone with SAP. As part of HP’s continued support and collaboration with SAP on joint solutions, HP provided 100 HP ProLiant DL580 G7 systems as part of SAP’s 250-node (250TB) SAP HANA system. This concept system is the first of its kind and shows the potential scalability of the SAP HANA database. It is also an example of what may be possible under the new open certification program that SAP is releasing in 2013.
In case you missed it, the new SAP HANA 250-node system was announced at SAPPHIRE Madrid during Vishal Sikka’s keynote speech*
HP and SAP have been innovating joint solutions for more than 25 years. Some examples of HP’s leadership when it comes to supporting SAP solutions are the publication of the first Business Warehouse Enhanced Mixed Load (BW-EML) benchmark result (the first, industry-standard benchmark using SAP HANA as the database), the introduction of the first disaster tolerant SAP HANA system, and the announcement of the first virtualized SAP HANA system.
At the SAPPHIRE conference this year, HP was recognized as the leading SAP partner having received the "Run SAP Partner of the Year" Pinnacle Award for 2012. To learn more about the partnership visit hp.com/go/sap. To learn more about HP Appsystems for SAP HANA: www.hp.com/go/sap/hana
