While every SAP customer is considering a move to SAP HANA in the next few years – given the maintenance strategy of SAP for non-SAP HANA platforms on the one hand, and on the other hand the rising need of enterprises to gain real-time insights to drive smarter and faster decisions – a comprehensive view and evaluation of the required components to run a SAP HANA in-memory solution is key to success of the business adoption.
SAP HANA stand alone as in-memory software platform for real-time and predictive analytics won’t deliver the great promises and benefits. This is only possible in conjunction with powerful infrastructure technologies that can process data-intensive workloads such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) especially S/4 HANA, supply-chain management (SCM), online transaction processing (OLTP), online analytical processing (OLAP), and data warehousing in-memory for rapid analysis. For this purpose Dell, Intel, and SAP have teamed to provide enterprises with a data-center solution that is highly agile and high-performing, and that supports the growth of companies.
As a result enterprises can benefit from Dell PowerEdge R930 servers with the latest Intel Xeon E7-8890 V4 processors that recently set two new Dell SAP HANA world-record benchmarks* with a performance improvement of nearly a quarter compared to the previous R930 servers with Intel E7v3 processors (press release):
The Dell-Intel SAP HANA performance leadership helps enterprises to accelerate performance across the data center, to deliver real insights with real value in real time for the largest workloads running on fast, high-performing infrastructure combined with faster transaction speeds and accelerated operations
Read the latest solution brief from Dell, Intel and SAP to learn more about real-time responsiveness, quick results, and increased productivity making smarter data center with leading technology to run SAP HANA in-memory analytics at its best.
But what is Dell’s SAP HANA story beyond the PowerEdge Server? There is quite a lot more you can do – think about:
- Even more flexibility and scalability with Cloud Reference Architecture for SAP HANA
- Smart Connected Business for SAP using SAP HANA and Internet of Things technologies
- Or special use cases in health leveraging the Dell Reference Architecture for SAP Connected Health powered by SAP HANA and how this solution can help creating opportunities for faster diagnosis and treatment, such as fighting against cancer. Video SAP TV: The Pulse – Precision Medicine.
