The SAP certification for SAP HANA on VxRail P-Series HCI limits the deployment to four production SAP HANA VMs per physical VxRail node and two VMs per socket (half-socket). The SAP certification for SAP HANA on VxRail D-Series and E-Series HCI limits the deployment to two production SAP HANA VMs per physical VxRail node.
Note: This limitation does not apply to nonproduction SAP HANA VMs.
While it is possible to deploy up to four production SAP HANA VMs (P-Series) and up to two production SAP HANA VMs (D/E-Series) on a physical host, we recommend that you have enough free resources to allow vSphere HA to perform an automatic restart of the SAP HANA VMs on another host if one host fails as a result of a hardware problem. See Table 3 for the VxRail standby node sizing recommendations.
