In May 2013, Bill Veghte, EVP and GM, HP Enterprise Group,stood on stage at Sapphire and committed to delivering the first SAP certified, 12TB/16s system for SAP HANA. Today, we are announcing the achievement of that milestone and are proud and excited to shout it from rooftops – it’s called HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA and it’s the most powerful single in-memory pool system on the industry standard server market, available to order this month!


CS900.pngAs the newest member of the HP Sharks portfolio, the HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA includes a powerful 6TB/8s system, a massively scalable 12TB/16s scale up system, and an extreme scale 80TB+ scale out system2 – all of which enable you to manage and analyze extremely large and diverse datasets to facilitate real-time business decisions. When combined with the modern database design of SAP HANA, the HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA offers the industry’s first enterprise-class data transformation platform.


Purpose-built for extreme in-memory computing, the ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA is able to generate astounding performance results. Workloads that once required hours to run can now be processed in seconds thanks to processing speeds that were never before imagined.


Formerly known as Project Kraken1, this system leverages all the best capabilities of the HP ConvergedSystem 500 – strong performance, high availability, powerful data protection, high scalability, and fast-time-to value. Plus it has mission-critical features, such as massive scalability (up to 12TB on a single in-memory pool system and up to 80TB+ for multiple node scale out), flexible consolidation, and intelligent management for your most important business applications. And just how big is 12 terabytes fo data? Think about it as 5,280,000,000 single-spaced typewritten pages, which all comes down to a LOT of storage to develop real time business analytics with.


With the HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA, you can run transactions, analytics, or a mix of both workloads on the same system, enabling you to focus on strategy and innovation instead of managing sprawl. With HP’s flexible consolidation capabilities for mixed workloads, you can increase operational efficiency by running different application workloads on the same HANA instance without fear of data corruption through database partitioning and electrical isolation.  


This new system contains unique, built-in, high-availability functions that prevent downtime of your mission-critical business applications. These x86 mission critical RAS (reliability, availability, security) features include a fault tolerant crossbar fabric and a redundant and hot-pluggable system clock source for availability. Plus, you can increase IT staff efficiency and trust your system is in good hands, with HP’s intelligent management tool -- providing IT with performance visibility to the server, blades, fault tolerant fabric, and enclosure.


Built on HP ProLiant and Superdome technologies, including blazingly fast Intel® Xeon® Processor E7v2 and HP 3PAR StoreServ storage, HP offers the flexibility to scale to a range of configurations to accommodate all customer needs.


I hope to see you at HP Discover, where you can learn more about this new system at the Technical Breakout TB3070 - Analyze this! Project Kraken: SAP HANA® platform co-innovation for the next step in your analytics journey.
