Prerequisites for use of HANA“SAP HANA® is fully adaptable to the dramatic advances of hardwarestorage technology, on premise and in the cloud. Multicore CPUs and 64-bitsystems offer a new reality in scalability, where, for example, a blade serverwith 4 blades, each with 4 CPUs, and each CPU with 8 cores, provides atotal of 128 cores for software processing. New technology availableprovides a multisocket, 8-CPU system with 10 cores in 1 server, translatinginto 1 terabyte of memory”.(source: http://www.saphana.com/servlet/JiveServlet/previewBody/1506-102-11-2830/SAP_HANA_Platform_Technical_Overview_(EN).pdf ) 7 Copyrighted 2012 by LeverX, Inc.
