You’ll find it’s a convenient way for you to acquire the information you need to help make an informed decision in one of the most important areas of your enterprise’s operations. You’ll also find that the event is only a week away, so we encourage you to register at your earliest convenience. Complete event information is available here.

Fact-full. Fiction-free.

Let’s start with the long-lasting nature of the facts, specifically that the HPE – SAP Alliance has been creating and providing top performing solutions to our mutual customers for over 30 years. If something were to go wrong, it’s had plenty of time to do it. Nothing has. We don’t expect anything will. So these are solutions that were jointly developed, tested and proven to deliver exactly the results you need and want. They are the best choices all around the board.

Which naturally brings us to fact #2. According to one of the most respected industry analysts, HPE has more SAP HANA deployments than the next three vendors combined. This means HPE is the #1 choice PLUS the safe choice for customers like you with mission critical environment - . … and that’s probably the most important fact/choice of all.

Fact #3 is more of a capability, but it is super-impressive nonetheless. Only HPE Storage is always on, always fast, and powered and protected by HPE InfoSight, the most advanced AI in the industry. What does that mean to you? Typically, InfoSight can detect and address over 85% of issues that could potentially impact your environment automatically, before you are even aware of them. So what is typically referred to as L1 and L2 support is fully automated AND addressed. There’s definitely something very right about that.   

More capabilities and facts?  Of course.

No discussion of Storage for SAP and SAP HANA would be complete without a discussion of the cloud. With the HPE Cloud Volumes Backup, a new on-demand enterprise cloud backup service, HPE is making it super simple for you to move your backup infrastructure to the cloud—directly from any storage array or backup ISV. Your backups can be restored on premises or in the cloud - without egress fees - to turn them into a business asset that accelerates development and reveals new insights.  Plus, it’s delivered as a service, so you only pay as you grow with predictable consumption-based billing so you can avoid upfront capex expenses and overprovisioning.
