All rights reserved. 7The right mix of technologies+ In memory: approx 10 times faster(Any DB becomes faster if you run it in memory)+ column orientation for analytics: 100 times faster(disk based Sybase IQ is approx 100 times faster than traditional DB)+ optimization for the Intel E7 Cache structure(tests on E5 show approx 20% less performance)+ high throughput low latency network interconnects Cisco provides extreme high throughput + extreme low latency
  8. 8. © 2012 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 8•  In memory make only read faster(Transactions have still be written to storage to become persistent)•  Transactional applications need row store(“traditional” databases are already row based) On-line transactions will not be much faster However:•  Real-time business intelligence instead the truth of yesterday•  No need to transload data from ECC and CRM to BW•  Fast ad-hoc analytics on source data•  Best of both worlds: two databases under one hood
  9. 9. © 2012 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 9•  Delivered like a instant soup: power up, add license, consume•  Not meant to fit to individual customer datacenter standards:Only Intel E7 CPUs and Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11Switches and storage, even the rack is a part of the applianceNo 3rd party tools are supported on HANA nodes (only on your own risk)•  not an island but an alien in most datacenter’s•  No resource sharing with other applications, no multi-tenantServer, Network and Storage resources are dedicated for SAP HANAone Appliance per productive HANA System (SID)•  only QA and DEV can share the same server (with sufficient resources).•  As soon the appliance is handed over to the customer it has to bemaintained and patched like any SAP system•  Cisco remote HANA Operation Service offeringWith Intel® Xeon® Processors
