This Dell EMC Ready Solution for SAP is designed to consolidate and simplify IT for complex SAP ERP and Business Suite landscapes by lowering the TCO while delivering increased performance and productivity on infrastructure that is SAP HANA-certified. The solution enables application owners to accelerate application lifecycle management because it provides the integration and features to provision and manage SAP systems more efficiently, helping to decrease costs.
Customer goals for enhancing an SAP infrastructure include:
- Streamlining the system and reducing costs
- Consolidating SAP landscapes onto a single storage platform while delivering significant performance increases
- Preparing for the digital economy and modernizing SAP landscapes
This Ready Solution addresses these challenges by providing:
- Storage consolidation that provides for substantial savings through increased data reduction, higher density drives, and the ability to start small and grow.
- Consistently improved performance for a consolidated SAP landscape with consistent scale-out performance and close to 3 PB effective capacity in one array.
- Highly efficient data replication that is metadata-aware and therefore data reduction-aware. Less data on the wire means smaller bandwidth requirements per unit of written or replicated data.
- Ability to bring other workloads to the PowerMax array.
- Sizing calculations for SAP landscapes to ensure predictable performance.
- Simplified and repeatable standard for ordering and sizing infrastructure for SAP landscapes.
