HP Datacenter Care for SAP HANA TDI: DIY that’s doesn’t turn into OMG


By Greg Chabot


A couple of years ago, my cousin Harold (from Aunt Alice on my mother’s side) went to buy a new car, took one look at Corvairt carburetors.jpgthe sticker price, got massive sticker shock and decided he could build a better and cheaper one himself. Better because he could use the best parts from different makes and models. Cheaper because he would get everything from local junk yards. Unfortunately his DIY project quickly turned into OMG because he could never get his hemi engine to work with the Porsche tranny and the limited-slip differential from a ’65 Caddy. We last saw him going off in search of a couple of Corvair (no, I have no idea why. See picture at right) carburetors and muttering something about the unfairness of life.

But cousin Harold’s failures shouldn’t deter you if you’re thinking of using the SAP HANA Tailored Data center Integration (TDI) program. That’s because HP Datacenter Care is available to keep your DIY from ending up with an “OMG, what have I done?!?”  

The wonders of choice
SAP HANA TDI offers an alternative to the appliance approach in which certified hardware partners deliver HANA appliance with all necessary components pre-configured and pre-installed.  Instead, TDI fully supports a customer’s ability to choose their preferred hardware vendors and infrastructure components from a menu of supported SAP HANA hardware, including hardware and operation processes that may already be in their data centers. This can significantly lower costs and allow for easier integration of SAP HANA in their data centers.  

The worries of choice
While SAP HANA TDI provides customers with greater flexibility, it also places the responsibility of installing, maintaining and supporting the multiple components of the solution on them. In the past, this would have meant negotiating, setting up, and managing support agreements with a number of different vendors. However, HP Datacenter Care for SAP HANA TDI removes the worry by providing the support you need to deploy, operate, and evolve your TDI infrastructure across all products and vendors.
