SAP HANA is an in-memory data platform that can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud. Organizations use the SAP HANA platform to analyze large volumes of data and develop and deploy applications in real time. The Dell EMC PowerStore platform is a midrange enterprise storage system that is optimized for simplicity across the storage life cycle—it is simple to acquire, deploy, manage, and service.
The solution that this guide describes uses SAP HANA in a TDI deployment scenario on PowerStore enterprise storage systems. The PowerStore array series meet the SAP HANA performance and functional requirements and are certified by SAP. Therefore, customers can use PowerStore systems for SAP HANA TDI deployments in a fully supported environment using their existing data center infrastructures.
The solution configuration recommendations in this guide are based on SAP requirements for high availability (HA) and on the performance test results that are required to meet SAP’s key performance indicators (KPIs) for SAP HANA TDI.
