Highly Available & High Performance Infrastructure and Managed Services for SAP HANA

Organizations that have run ERP applications for a while struggle to get a real-time view of their business because of rapidly growing data. Analytics and reporting take a few hours at the least, if not days. And often transactions may exhibit long latency. All these lead to compounded productivity issues within an enterprise. As more companies warm up to big data and the huge possibilities for their businesses that it can unveil, such productivity issues simply cannot go unaddressed.

SAP HANA was built to tackle these issues. Businesses that operate in real-time environments with little room for lags in processing data for their critical applications have to move to in-memory compute environments. For businesses already operating SAP environments, migrating to SAP HANA is highly recommended, especially with new developments on the ERP being largely around HANA.  Many businesses ready to adopt SAP will opt for the HANA option, going forward.

By moving the action from the disk to memory, latency issues come down dramatically. However, the volatile nature of in-memory computing demands a highly resilient system. Hence, SAP has made stringent certification processes for the server and storage systems being built for HANA implementations. HP ConvergedSystem for SAP HANA has been purpose built to enable enterprises derive the fastest value out of their HANA investments. With over 77,000 SAP implementations running on HP systems, it was natural for SAP and HP to work together to build this new system.
