SAP has introduced several ways to manage the warm store but positions the Native Storage Extension (NSE) released with
SAP HANA 2.0 SPS 04 as the option IT should consider first.
- Increase SAP HANA data capacity at low TCO.
- Add warm storage data, up to 1:4 ratio of SAP HANA hot data in-memory to warm data on disk. NSE disk store ≤ 10TB, for initial SAP HANA release.
- Deeply integrated warm data tier, with full SAP HANA functionality.
- Will support all SAP HANA data types and data models.
- Complements, without replacing, other warm data tiering solutions.
Use cases for initial SAP NSE release include:
- Customer- or SAP-built HANA application challenged by growing data volumes.
- SAP S/4HANA data aging (NSE is an evolution of “paged attributes”).
SAP HANA Data Tiering powered by Dell EMC: Lower TCO and licensing costs
Enhance capacity and data volume management with persistent memory (PMEM)
- Lower TCO with higher capacity (PMEM replaces DRAM).
- Using extension nodes with SAP BW, you can overload a node by a factor of 4 with no performance impact for warm data on the extension node.
Consolidation platform lowers TCO running legacy SAP ERP and SAP HANA landscapes
- Supports Native Storage Extension (NSE) for SAP S/4HANA data aging, providing 1:4 ratio for hot to warm data (not larger than 10TB for initial SAP HANA release).
- Supports data tiering options for SAP BW on HANA and SAP BW/4HANA for data temperatures.
