HP ConvergedSystem for SAP HANA: meet the industry’s most complete offering for advanced analytics

celialawren on ‎03-18-2014 09:45 PM

If you’ve selected SAP HANA to help transform your data analytics, then you’re probably looking for a super-fast, high-performing and amazingly scalable platform to run it. Your option? Slim until now.


Today, HP announced the latest of the HP “SHARKS” – very fast, efficient and high performing systems and delivery process. The HP ConvergedSystem for SAP HANA is a portfolio of pre-integrated systems optimized for in-memory computing with the highest levels of performance and availability, unmatched scalability and the fastest time-to-value. The systems integrate the server, storage, networking, software and services that clients need to power their SAP HANA environment in all-in-one systems that are quick and easy to deploy, managed as one, and have integrated services to ensure optimal performance today and into the future.  In combination with leading data management solutions and consulting services, these new systems we affectionately call “SHARKS” for HANA provide the most complete offering for advanced analytics.


The first available “SHARKS” in the ConvergedSystem portfolio for SAP HANA is the HP ConvergedSystem 500 for SAP HANA. This new system delivers unparalleled performance and is based on a modular, standards-based architecture that gives you the flexibility to start small and add capacity as your SAP HANA business requirements grow. HP also offers a number of deployment options: on-premise, hosted or Cloud that gives you the flexibility of choice. This new system will be available to order March 31, 2014. Click here to receive more technical details on this date.


Later this year, HP will offer another ConvergedSystem for SAP HANA that leverages technologies developed as part of HP/SAP’s co-innovation prototype, Project Kraken. These technologies will enable the largest, most mission-critical business application deployments on SAP HANA.


Optimized for SAP HANA


  • Purpose-built and optimized for SAP HANA workloads, the HP ConvergedSystem for SAP HANA has proven performance from the HANA database through the application layer.  In fact, HP is the only vendor to demonstrate SAP HANA true performance. The SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse Enhanced Mixed Load (BW-EML) Benchmark results show that HP systems provide twice the performance of any other benchmark.
  • SAP HANA is increasingly being used for mission critical workloads, so HP has integrated HP Serviceguard with SAP HANA.  HP Serviceguard extension for HANA offers the industry’s only unattended, automated failover and disaster tolerance solution for SAP HANA, assures uninterrupted performance by increasing availability, reduces errors caused by human intervention, and prevents data corruption.
  • Multiple SAP HANA workloads can run on the same system without impacting performance with built-in 3PAR Thin Provisioning and workload-optimization technology, simplifying the test and development systems within your SAP landscape.


Unmatched scalability


You can quickly scale as your data grows across different SAP HANA workloads, from analytics to data warehouse to business applications. HP offers a choice of configurations ranging from 256 GB to 2TB scale-up systems and 16TB scale-out systems. With Project Kraken, only HP offers up to 12TB in a single in-memory pool to support the largest business apps on HANA.


Fastest time-to-value  


Like all HP “SHARKS”, the new ConvergedSystem for SAP HANA offers a total systems service experience that simplifies IT through quick deployment, simplified management, and experienced system-level consulting and support, throughout the lifecycle. These latest systems can be deployed in as few as 15 days from order to operation. And, the highest service levels are ensured with built-in Proactive Care for HANA that eliminates both cost and risk.


Meet the new HP ConvergedSystem for SAP HANA


The new HP ConvergedSystem portfolio for SAP HANA builds on experience gained in over 800 SAP HANA IT system implementations. HP has a committed roadmap and a committed partnership with SAP. HP is in it for the long haul, and we offer the most complete offering for advanced analytics. Check out this video and meet HP “SHARKS” for SAP HANA. Also stay tuned for deeper technology insights from our engineering team on this new portfolio coming to this blog shortly.


HP is converging, others are diverging


Check out a recent blog written by Mr. ConvergedSystem himself, Tom Joyce, Senior Vice President and General Manager of HP Converged Systems on why HP is the ideal option for SAP customers.


We’re very excited about these new systems for SAP HANA and think they’ll be of interest to many people who are handling Big Data now and in the future. I’d love your feedback on what you think and how HP can help you.
