Dell EMC™ Unity™ x50F and x00(F) all-flash and hybrid arrays meet all performance and functional requirements for SAP HANA and are certified by SAP. This certification enables customers to use Dell EMC Unity for SAP HANA TDI deployments in a fully supported environment using their existing data center infrastructures.
Using the SAP HANA hardware configuration check tool (hwcct), Dell EMC performed extensive testing on the Unity storage family systems in accordance with the SAP HANA-HWC-ES-1.1 certification scenario. Based on the test results, this solution guide describes storage configuration recommendations for the Unity all-flash and hybrid arrays that meet SAP performance requirements (specifically, the SAP HANA TDI key performance indicators for data throughput and latency) and ensure the highest availability for database persistence on disk.
This solution guide describes SAP HANA TDI deployments in physical environments. If you plan to use SAP HANA in VMware virtualized environments on vSphere, see the VMware Virtualized SAP HANA with EMC Storage Solution Guide.
