  • HANA - High Performance Analytic ApplianceHANA is a hardware and software combination integrating the new SAP Business Analytic Engine(BAE) software and delivered as an optimized hardware appliance. SAP is partnering with leading computer  hardware manufacturers to deliver this next generation business analytics solution. The new solution will allow customers to do: accelerated BI scenarios off any data source; better operational planning, simulation and forecasting; fast analysis and better decision making off accelerated SAP ECC transactional data, better storage, search and ad-hoc analysis off very large data volumesBAE – Business Analytic EngineBAE combines an in-memory data base, a calculation engine and a modeling environment that allows for fast business analysis of an organization’s transactional and Analytic data from across, as well as outside, the entECCrise in near real-time. Leveraging the intelligent use of in memory technology, columnar database design, data compression and massive parallel processing, BAE allows the processing of massive amounts of data in near real-time
  • Performance - The clear #1 reason for adopting HANA at Medtronic was the performance gains we believe it will bring. This not only allows for faster response time, but also removes the IT overhead of maintaining aggregates, indexes and other activities to try to make the traditional systems perform. While there are a variety of reasons for the performance gains, I believe firmly in 2 of them: In-Memory - Even with the best storage technology available in the market, we continue to see I/O as the number one culprit for performance issues in our existing systems. By removing the disk access we believe a significant leap in performance will be attained. Columnar Database - There is no doubt that a columnar database provides a better structure for the types of database requests made on a data warehouse platform.

VM VM VM VM Software based Virtual Switching  Hypervisor needs to switch LAN and storage I/O  Consumes additional CPU cycles  Adds significant latency to I/O Hypervisor Soft Switch  Practically prohibitive for virtualization of larger databases (SAP note: if you run into performance trouble with virtualization: move to bare iron. If trouble disappears, this was the right Solution) standard VIC Cisco solution: VM-FEX (Fabric Extender) VM VM VM VM  Hypervisor vSwitch removal result in massive I/O throughput improvements and less latency VM-FEX  10 Gb links dont consume CPU resources (Hypervisor pass through mode)  Each VM gets a dedicated PCI device (up to 56)  Each VM gets a virtual port on physical switch 10GbE/FCoE  end-to-end QoS per VM down to storage 10GbE/FCoE 0 1 2 3 ………… 56 Cisco enables virtualization of Cisco VIC running VM-FEX mode provides ASIC based low latency VM switch large SAP Systems© 2012 Cisco and/or its affiliates.

    • 26. The right mix of technologies • In memory: approx 10 times faster  Any DB becomes faster if you run it in memory • The right architecture for analytics: 100 times faster  Sybase IQ (disk based) is approx 100 times faster than traditional row orientated databases  Transactional load (ECC, CRM) becomes only 2 to 3 times faster • Optimization for the Intel E7 Cache structure  Tests on E5 show sub-optimal performance (approx 20% less) • Best of both worlds: Two databases under one hood© 2012 Cisco and/or its affiliates.

    • 27. SAP defines HANA as a „appliance like“ • ready to run solution like a instant soup: power up, add license, consume • The mandatory HW and SW components didn’t fit to most datacenter standards: not an island but an alien in most datacenter’s Only Intel Xeon X7560 or E7-X870 CPUs and Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11 Switches and storage, even the rack is a fixed part of the solution • As soon the appliance is handed over to the customer it has to be maintained and patched like any SAP system • No resource sharing with other applications, no multi-tenant Server, Network and Storage resources are dedicated for SAP HANA • One Appliance per SAP HANA System (SID) For a usual PRD-QAS-DEV landscape three “appliances” are recommended. At least two “appliances” are required if QAS and DEV runs on one together.© 2012 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 27
