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 Unity XT platform is a midrange enterprise storage system that is optimized for simplicity across the storage life cycle; that is, it is simple to acquire, deploy, manage, and service.
This solution uses SAP HANA in a TDI deployment scenario on Unity XT enterprise storage systems. Unity XT x80F all-flash and hybrid arrays meet the SAP HANA performance and functional requirements. They are certified by SAP, which means that customers can use Unity XT 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. They are also based on the performance tests and results that are required to meet SAP’s key performance indicators (KPIs) for SAP HANA TDI.
