  • 2. 2 Solution Brief IBM Systems and Technology The result is accelerated business intelligence (BI), reporting and analysis capabilities with direct access to the in-memory data models residing in SAP In-Memory Database software. Advanced analytical workflows and planning functionality directly access operational data from SAP ERP or other sources. SAP HANA provides a high-speed data warehouse environment, with SAP In-Memory Database serving as a next- generation, in-memory acceleration engine. Delivered on IBM eX5 enterprise servers that provide leading performance and scalability, SAP HANA efficiently processes and analyzes massive amounts of data by packaging SAP’s use of in-memory technology, columnar database design, data com- pression and massive parallel processing together with essential tools and functionality such as data replication and analytic modeling. Made possible through recent technology advances that com- bine large, scalable memory, multi-core processing, fast solid- state storage and data management, in-memory computing leverages these technology innovations to establish a continuous real-time link between insight, foresight and action to deliver significantly accelerated business performance and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO). To explore, model and analyze data in real time, SAP HANA can be leveraged as a high-performance “side-by-side” data mart to an existing data warehouse; it can also serve as the data- base in SAP Business Suite™ and SAP NetWeaver™ Business Warehouse environments. IBM eX5 systems with the Intel Xeon processor E7 family power SAP HANA IBM is the first to decouple memory and input/output (I/O) from the processor—moving processing power from what’s the- oretically possible to what’s actually possible. IBM System x® servers with fifth-generation IBM eX5 technology enable SAP HANA customers to benefit from a shared vision that delivers simplicity and automation designed to help organizations accel- erate business outcomes while lowering TCO. These System x servers are equipped with processors from the Intel Xeon processor E7 family, which combine exceptional raw compute power with increased memory bandwidth and support for significantly greater memory capacity to deliver superior performance to previous-generation processors. With up to ten cores in each processor, the four-socket x3950 X5 can be scaled to 40 cores and 80 threads with the use of Intel Hyper- Threading Technology. Organizations can achieve extreme scaling within each node for running demanding workloads on a compact system. IBM System x servers based on the Intel Xeon processor E7 family offer 20x more performance than single-core servers,5 enabling greater responsiveness from SAP applications. Co-innovation between Intel and SAP stretches back more than 10 years, and the latest manifestation is the excellent results from SAP HANA on the Intel Xeon processor E7 family, for extraordinary efficiency and business value: ●  ● Intelligent performance tailors processor operation dynami- cally to the needs of the workload, for high throughput when it matters most. ●  ● Automated energy efficiency powers up only those processor components that are needed at any given time, for break- through performance per watt and ROI. ●  ● Advanced reliability keeps the server running smoothly when otherwise-unrecoverable processor or memory errors occur. In addition, Intel Xeon E7 Processors feature energy efficiency technology (Intel Intelligent Power Technology (IPT)) lever- aged from Intel’s Efficient Performance product line. IPT auto- matically shifts the CPU and memory into the lowest available power state, while delivering the performance you need.
  • 3. 3 Solution Brief IBM Systems and Technology IBM offers several Workload Optimized Solution models for SAP HANA. These Workload Optimized solutions are server models, based on the 2-socket x3690 X5 and 4-socket x3950 X5, are optimally designed and certified by SAP. They are delivered preconfigured with key software components pre- installed to help speed delivery and deployment of the solution. The x3690 X5–based configurations offer 128 to 256 GB of memory and incorporate IBM XFlash solid-state disk. The x3950 X5–based configurations leverage the scalability of eX5 and offer the capability to pay as you grow—starting with a 2-processor, 256 GB configuration and growing to a 8-processor, 4 TB configuration. The x3950 X5–based configurations integrate the 1.2 TB High IOPS MLC Mono Adapter. Note: an 8-socket configuration uses a scalability kit that combines the 7143-HBx10 with the 7143-HCx10 or the 7143-HDx10,14 with the 7143-HEx10,14 to create a single 8-socket system. SAP Business Suite customers can now take advantage of new high memory configurations designed for SAP Business Suite workloads such as ERP, CRM, and SCM. Using the 7143-HDx10,12 and 7143-HEx10,12 models, these single server configurations enable support for 1 TB, 2 TB, and 4 TB database sizes. IBM now offers VMware™ virtualization support for select single node SAP HANA workload optimized models for non-production environments. This virtualization support helps you optimize your investment for development and test envi- ronments. In addition, new synchronous disaster recovery sup- port is available so your SAP HANA systems can failover to a second site enabling to you to ensure maximum data availability. Leading performance IBM eX5 enterprise servers with Intel Xeon processors offer extreme memory and performance scalability. With improved hardware economics and new technology offerings, IBM is helping SAP realize a real-time enterprise with in-memory business applications.
