Before you deploy SAP HANA on a PowerFlex system, determine the number of production and nonproduction SAP HANA systems that you require and the CPU, memory, and disk capacity requirements for these systems.
With SAP HANA TDI Phase 5, SAP introduced customer-workload-driven SAP HANA system sizing. SAP application performance standard (SAPS) requirements for specific customer workloads are used to determine the type and number of processors that are required to run SAP HANA. Customers use the SAP HANA Quick Sizer tool and sizing reports to determine the optimal number and types of PowerFlex nodes, CPU types, and memory sizes and disks for their SAP HANA environment, and then communicate the results to Dell.
