Start with BWA on a Cisco Bridge to SAP HANA appliance, and transition to HANA when ready, preserving up to 90% of your hardware investment

Cisco’s Bridge to SAP HANA appliance runs BWA, but it shares the same architecture as Cisco’s HANA Scaleout appliance. Same chassis, Same fabric interconnects, Same switches, Same rack server, Same NetApp storage, Same automation software and benefits.

When reconfiguring our Bridge to SAP HANA appliances from BWA to HANA, all components remain the same, except for the blades, and they can be redeployed

  • 2. • BWA is a add-on to SAP BW. InfoCubes are loaded onto a BWA appliance. HANA is an in-memory replacement for SAP BW’s disk database (Oracle DB2, SQLServer)• Performance for HANA and BWA are similar because they use, in principle, the same in- memory technology• Why would a customer move to HANA?  Early adoption of the future technology  Laying the groundwork for ERP on HANA  Already on release 7.3• Why would a customer stay with BW + BWA?  HANA requires a new license  BWA runs on cheaper CPUs than HANA  Customer wants to keep its existing database  BW must be upgraded to release 7.3 to be moved to HANA as DB• HANA is the future, but transitioning to release 7.3 can take 6 months to 2 years• Start with BWA on a Cisco Bridge to SAP HANA appliance, and transition to HANA when ready, preserving up to 90% of your hardware investment  Cisco’s Bridge to SAP HANA appliance runs BWA, but it shares the same architecture as Cisco’s HANA Scaleout appliance.
