SAP HANA on Cisco UCS: The Q&A.

  1. 1. SAP HANA on Cisco UCS. The Q&A. ® ® How two industry leaders have come together to realize the power of in-memory computing.
  2. 2. What is SAP HANA? SAP HANA combines database, data processing, and application platform capabilities in-memory. The platform provides libraries for predictive, planning, text processing, spatial, and business analytics. 2
  3. 3. What is Cisco UCS? Introduced in 2009, the Cisco Unified Computing System™ (UCS) server platform unifies computing, networking, management, virtualization, and storage access into a single integrated architecture. Running SAP HANA on Cisco UCS accelerates deployment, delivers better performance, and reduces total cost of ownership. Faster deployment through centralized management. From “bare metal” to SAP HANA running: 45 minutes to deploy 3
  4. 4. Why is SAP teaming with Cisco? Cisco UCS delivers the performance and reliability needed to power memoryintensive, mission-critical applications like SAP HANA. Working together with SAP, Cisco has certified its next-generation Cisco UCS server platform for SAP HANA, giving customers a powerful platform to develop the systems and services they need to stay ahead of their competition. 4
  5. 5. How does SAP HANA overcome the limitations of diskbased latency? Traditional disk-based data warehouses are limited in their ability to benefit from major technology trends such as multicore central processing units (CPU), in-memory processing, and columnar storage. The result is access that can be 100,000 times slower than columnar in-memory processing of data. With SAP HANA, data is optimistically loaded into memory when needed and is accessible by all queries – including ad hoc queries – and therefore eliminates disk-based latency. Additionally, SAP HANA enables dynamic addition of columns without needing to remove the data and tables, providing complete business flexibility. 5
  6. 6. What value does Cisco bring to SAP customers? The Cisco Unified Computing System server platform delivers the performance and reliability to power memory-intensive, mission-critical applications as well as virtualized workloads. The radical simplicity of Cisco UCS reduces complexity in all aspects of system operations. As a result, companies are able to take advantage of more unified networking, management, computing, and storage access, as well as faster deployment and shorter time to value. 6
  7. 7. How will SAP HANA on Cisco UCS help business leaders? For line of business (LOB) leaders, it translates into substantial improvement in delivering real-time insights that enable smarter cross-selling as well as better customer experiences that lead to greater loyalty. For business analytics applications, SAP HANA is a significant advancement that enables businesses to quickly access the most relevant and up-to-date data to align their business model with rapidly changing, competitive environments. 7
  8. 8. How will SAP HANA on Cisco UCS help IT leaders? For application IT leaders, SAP HANA enables IT departments to give business users the flexibility to access systems and data, with real-time views of their business. At the same time, the system gives IT the power to achieve low redundancy rates and high reuse of systems, information, and human resources. In the end, it means eliminating traditional roadblocks that delay responses to business needs while taking advantage of a user-friendly system that radically simplifies scaling and configuring new servers. 8
  9. 9. How have companies taken advantage of SAP HANA and Cisco Ucs? “We believe our alliance with Cisco Systems and SAP is a commitment to helping our customers make better business decisions.” - Satbir Kohli, Sr. Vice President & Global Head, SAP Practice, Mahindra Satyam “By strategically aligning with Cisco’s UCS converged infrastructure team around SAP’s in-memory analytic [SAP] HANA offering, Presidio has the ability to address the challenges that CIOs face on a daily basis around business analytics, Big Data, and BYOD [bring your own device] by building solutions that focus on helping them leverage their existing enterprise application landscape.” - Mark Longo, Director of Analytics and Mobility Applications, Presidio “VCE has a large number of SAP customers that directly benefit from VCE’s close collaboration with Cisco, EMC, and SAP. Together, we are focused on helping our customers address some of their biggest business challenges with innovative and powerful SAP HANA solutions.” - Hong Kwek, Vice President, Solutions Engineering, VCE 9
