2 must-watch videos on SAP HANA: How to hit the “easy button”

2 must-watch videos on SAP HANA_Blog_shutterstock_209998777.jpgWhen I think about SAP HANA and HPE, the first thing that comes to mind is HPE’s dominance in the SAP HANA market. We are the clear leader in deploying SAP HANA for the compute layer. As a matter of fact, in the latest Gartner report we have deployed more SAP HANA servers than the next 3 competitors combined!

With that being said, we just released a video on how HPE is transforming our own business using SAP HANA. The numbers we are recording are staggering. By deploying SAP ERP on SAP HANA, we ultimately end up managing the production of 5 servers and 7 networking devices every minute. How crazy-productive is that!?

Let’s take a look at the big picture. HPE is a happy user of SAP HANA. BIG time. As the saying goes, “We eat our own dog food.” We have a broad, industry leading-portfolio for SAP HANA, and deliver world class implementation services. I think that qualifies us to say that, as customers like you face the challenge of migration to SAP HANA by 2025, HPE is a safe bet to help you make the transition. As you will see in this video, HPE is a trailblazer in using SAP HANA.

The second video I’d like to share with you is an interview between Technative and me at SAP TechEd in Las Vegas. We discussed why HPE Primera is a great choice as your persistent storage layer for SAP HANA.

HPE was proud to announce the revolutionary HPE Primera last June at HPE Discover, and we have already delivered significant value to customers with SAP HANA environments. So far, our customers love the fact that HPE Primera is TDI certified, simple to manage, and has built in artificial intelligence (AI).

When I talk about simplicity with customers, I find that they are overwhelmed with all of the overhead when managing mission critical storage; everyone wants to be able to hit an “easy button”. Customers also want their people to spend their time innovating, not managing their storage. If you want to hear about a few specific reasons why HPE Primera is fantastic choice for SAP HANA, take a look at this video.

And - while I have the pen (or keyboard) in action, I wanted to mention that our storage portfolio for SAP HANA TDI deployments is industry leading! No matter what your budget is, what kind of availability requirements, simplicity needs, or deployment size you have -- HPE storage has a solution for you! Please take a look at our entire portfolio below. It is truly amazing how many world class products we have.
