Today SGI announced that its SGI UV 300H is now SAP-certified to run the SAP HANA platform in controlled availability at 20-sockets— delivering up to 15 terabytes (TB) of in-memory computing capacity in a single node. Asserting the value of key enhancements in support package stack 10 (SPS10) for SAP HANA and SAP’s close collaboration with system providers, SGI UV 300H delivers outstanding single-node performance and simplicity for enterprises moving to SAP HANA to gain business breakthroughs.

The recent NUMA enhancements to SAP HANA coupled with SGI’s future-proof single-node architecture provide enterprises with excellent in-memory platform performance and scale,” said Jorge Titinger, CEO, SGI. “By working closely with SAP, we are helping make real-time a reality in the largest and most demanding application environments with the first 20-socket SAP HANA-certified in-memory server, the SGI UV 300H.”

SGI UV 300H is a specialized offering in the SGI UVTM server line for in-memory computing that enables enterprises to further unlock value from information in real-time, boost innovation, and lower IT costs with SAP HANA. Featuring a highly differentiated single-node architecture, the system delivers significant performance advantages for businesses running SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA) and complex analytics at extreme scale. The single-node simplicity also helps enterprises eliminate overhead associated with clustered environments, streamline high availability, and scale-up seamlessly as data volumes grow with near-linear performance.

sgiIntegrated with the recently announced SAP HANA SPS10, SGI UV 300H capitalizes on deep collaboration between SAP, Intel and SGI to optimize SAP HANA-based workloads on multicore NUMA (non-uniform memory access) systems. This enables enterprises to leverage single-node systems with very large memory capacity and CPU cores, allowing them to enjoy optimum application performance. The unique capabilities provided by the SGI UV 300H in the areas of high-availability and disaster recovery, when used together with the advanced in-memory data processing of SAP HANA, provide an outstanding environment for running mission-critical business applications.
