In today’s competitive, data-intensive world, businesses require instantaneous access to information insights. Compared to traditional data warehousing technologies, Dell EMC’s SAP HANA solutions dramatically increase the speed of access to business information.
SAP HANA is a multipurpose, data-source-agnostic, in-memory database. Dell EMC’s SAP HANA solutions are optimized to run SAP HANA software on Dell EMC servers, networking, and storage.
When SAP first introduced SAP HANA on dedicated appliances, IT architects could not apply many of their traditional practices and principles. The SAP HANA Tailored Data Center Integration (TDI) model changed that. Although SAP still specifies restrictions on SAP HANA infrastructure architectures, most of the key principles of IT system architecture can now be applied to SAP HANA systems. A holistic approach to IT architecture across the data center is achieved by using existing data center resources, providing a strong return-on-investment (ROI) case for SAP HANA adoption. The flexibility and cost-effectiveness of SAP HANA TDI make it the future-proof option for organizations planning to make SAP HANA mainstream in their data centers.
