With SAP HANA TDI, you can deploy any Dell EMC PowerEdge system that is certified by SAP, as listed under Certified Appliances in the Certified and Supported SAP HANA Hardware Directory, with any Dell EMC enterprise storage system that is listed under Certified Enterprise Storage in the same directory.
Effective from SAP HANA TDI Phase 5, SAP supports the complete family of Intel Xeon Skylake and Cascade Lake platinum, gold, and silver processors, featuring eight+ cores per processor and a minimum of two sockets. The increased variety of CPU processor options enables customers to be more flexible in their hardware choices and to cost-optimize their Dell EMC PowerEdge systems for their specific workload requirements. SAP HANA TDI Phase Five allows for a workload-driven sizing approach by employing the SAP Application Performance Standard (SAPS) to determine the maximum RAM capacity for a specific customer application. Accordingly, customers whose workloads are less CPU-intensive might have a larger main memory capacity compared to SAP HANA appliance-based solutions that use a fixed core-to-memory sizing approach.
This Dell EMC PowerEdge Server solution for SAP HANA TDI deployments incorporates the latest Intel Xeon CPU architectures, while PowerEdge servers provide an exceptional combination of performance, resiliency, and flexibility to meet the needs of the modern enterprise data center.
