IT transformation is core to making business decisions faster, simplifying operations, and enabling a rapid response to evolving market conditions and opportunities. A hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) virtualizes compute, storage, and network resources, offering increased agility, scalability, and simplicity while keeping operational costs down.
In 2018, SAP extended its HANA platform support with a certification and validation process for a hyperconverged platform and infrastructure. SAP has certified the Dell EMC PowerEdge servers for VMware vSAN HCI solution, including the certified vSAN Ready Node configurations that this guide describes, for running SAP HANA production workloads.
Powered by Dell EMC PowerEdge servers and VMware vSAN and managed through the VMware vCenter interface, the solution gives existing VMware customers an operational experience with which they are already familiar. Seamless integration with existing VMware tools enables customers to use and extend their current IT tools and processes. Deploying this solution with the certified configurations reduces deployment risks, improves storage efficiency, and can help you build or scale your vSAN cluster faster. Dell EMC provides the simplicity of a single trusted source for the entire solution, which can be installed, implemented, and supported globally by Dell EMC.
