Scale-up (single-node) and scale-out (multinode) SAP HANA deployments are supported on VxRail infrastructure. Scale-up deployments are supported on the two-socket systems (D560F, E560F/N, E660F/N, P570F, and P670F/N) and the four-socket systems (P580N).
In accordance with SAP requirements, SAP HANA scale-out deployments on VxRail nodes are supported only with four-socket Cascade Lake servers (P580N) and four-socket wide VMs that use all available CPU resources. Up to eight worker nodes are possible, plus one or more nodes for VMware HA.
Note: Only vSAN 6.7 U2/U3 and later is supported for SAP HANA scale-out deployments. For more information, see SAP Note 2718982: SAP HANA on VMware vSphere and vSAN (access requires SAP login credentials).
