Deploying HANA via TDI

2,792 views

Published on

This webinar will cover the rules and guidelines for HANA sizing from SAP and the new Cisco Validated Design (CVD) explaining how to implement HANA via TDI on UCS Integrated Infrastructure - Shared Nothing deployments and Brownfield scenarios that build on the Foundation and Extension CVDs. What are the key considerations when adding HANA/vHANA to an existing UCS Integrated Infrastructure deployment? Pointers to supporting Technical Documentation (Foundation CVDs, Extension CVDs, Technical Whitepapers, key SAP Notes, etc.). Also includes a breakdown of Reference Configurations - Small, Medium, and Large - for SAP's S4HANA on the SAP Build & Price page.

Safe Harbor Statement The content and commentary in this presentation and associated webinar is intended to be accurate and directionally representative of SAP's Best Practices and Product Strategy. There is however a degree of subjectivity in any effort to interpret SAP from a sizing and capacity planning perspective. Therefore, it is strongly encouraged to request a "HANA Technical Academy" Briefing and Workshop with SAP, Cisco, and your preferred Storage Vendor at the SAP Co-Innovation Lab (COIL) or the SAP Competency Center:  Spend 1-2 Days with true SAP Subject Matter Experts  Latest Product Roadmaps and Solution Planning with SAP and your End-to-End SAP Technology vendors  Hands-on with HANA (Several Technical Scenarios including HA/DR, Hadoop, ILM, and Security Integrations)  Locations: Palo Alto (California, USA), São Paulo (Brazil), Waldorf (Germany), Moscow (Russia), Bangalore (India), Shanghai (China), Singapore, and Tokyo (Japan).
