For those of us who know the Hawaiian Island of Maui, HANA is fondly remembered as that little town on the southern tip where you can buy shaved ice at Hasegawa’s general store.
Today, HANA is known in the IT industry as the Acronym for SAP’s High-Performance Analytics Appliance—SAP HANA. This is an in-memory appliance that enables organizations to capture operational data as business happens, and analyze that data on the fly. During pilot tests last year, SAP said that a consumer goods company was able to run complex queries on over 450 million records in a matter of seconds, versus hours with previous data mining methods.
This week HDS announced new certified and optimized converged infrastructure solutions for SAP HANA using Hitachi Compute Blade 2000 with SAP in memory computing technology combined with Hitachi Advanced Modular Storage (AMS) 2000.
Hitachi Converged Platform for SAP HANA is the newest addition to the Hitachi Data Systems portfolio of converged data center solutions that combines and optimizes enterprise class storage systems and compute blades from Hitachi—as well as standard network infrastructure components—for a broad range of applications and cloud environments. Through quicker deployment, automation and scalability, the new solutions help organizations adopt cloud at their own pace and see predictable results with faster time to value
Customer benefits of Hitachi solutions integrated with SAP applications include:
- Predictable, Repeatable, Reliable Results: Pre-validated reference architectures, pre-packaged solutions with enterprise-class components across the entire stack, and targeted provisioning to help ensure consistent, predictable results as organizations look to manage and store massive volumes of fast-changing data.
- Exceptional Performance: High-density computing and throughput with wide-striping technology for enhanced utilization. Customers benefit from flexible server management capabilities and scalable architectures.
- Faster Time to Value: Quicker, simpler deployment offered from a single source for ordering and for providing services for planning and implementation. Pre-configuration and SAP validation of key components drastically reduces onsite deployment time. Intelligent automation of complex tasks enables rapid provisioning of resources with the assurance that the appropriate underlying infrastructure components are in place.
