Overcome Challenges of
Clustered Appliances



Real-Time Business with SAP HANA - Think Big!
The ability to combine database, data processing, and application platform capabilities in-memory with the SAP HANA platform is truly game-changing. Imagine if your operations, financial, research, or marketing teams could operate in real-time. Now imagine leveraging SAP HANA in your enterprise at extreme scale and lower total cost of ownership. SGI is making this possible.

Achieve Real-time Business at Extreme Scale & Lower TCO
Converging transactional and analytic workloads often warrants a single-node appliance for SAP HANA to meet performance objectives. A single-node appliance provides significant advantages to gain the business breakthroughs of SAP® Business Suite powered by SAP HANA. Performance advantages also extend to heavy analytics, and when consolidating applications and IT infrastructure. Furthermore, single-node systems alleviate administrative complexity as well as the difficulty providing high availability (HA) that clusters can pose for large environments. SGI's solution is an appliance for SAP HANA that scales up, not out.

Developed by SGI, the trusted leader in high performance computing, SGI UV for SAP HANA is a purpose-built, in-memory computing appliance for large or growing environments running on SAP HANA. Currently SAP-certified as a 4- or 8-socket single-node system with up to 6TBs of in-memory computing capacity, SGI's new appliance for SAP HANA is designed to enable enterprises achieve real-time operations at extreme scale and lower cost of ownership.

Single-Node Performance
Using a scale-up, single-node architecture with breakthrough coherent shared memory, SGI UV for SAP HANA enables you to run SAP Business Suite and other SAP applications in your large enterprise. It combines OLTP and OLAP workloads and eliminates the time-consuming extract, transform, and load processes to generate real-time reports on demand. You can perform very complex joins at massive scale and run multiple analytic engines simultaneously to include text, geo-spatial, and live data streaming. And you can consolidate applications and infrastructure and eliminate silos.

Single-Node Simplicity
The single-node architecture of UV for SAP HANA allows enterprises to run applications free from the overhead of clustered appliances. There are no cluster nodes, cluster network, or SAN to configure and administer. And there's no need for database partitioning or re-balancing I/O when increasing the size of the SGI appliance, as performance scales near linearly and automatically.

SGI UV for SAP HANA also helps maintain application service levels and avoid costly downtime by providing high availability with simplified administration. Using local and remote single-node SGI appliances, your IT department can reliably protect against logical, system, and site failures. And IT can fully restore critical applications and data warehouse operations in seconds, resulting in round-the-clock application access and protection.

Capitalize on proven, future-ready SGI technology
UV for SAP HANA features the SGI UV 300H, a new offering in the SGI UV server line built for SAP HANA. Coupled with Intel® Xeon® E7 8890 v2 15-core processors, this offering leverages seventh-generation SGI technology and over 100 SGI patents for in-memory computing. Using advanced SGI HARP ASICs contained in each 4-socket chassis and SGI NUMAlink® 7 network interconnects, the UV 300H is designed to scale up as a single-node server in 4-socket increments for growing enterprises.

The appliance is currently certified by SAP at 4 or 8 sockets with up to 6TB of shared memory using 32GB DIMMs. Pending further certification, SGI's future-ready architecture is designed to scale to 32 sockets and 24TB of shared memory as a single-node system (capacity doubles using 64GB DIMMs). To protect against power loss, log files and data are stored on NetApp® E2700 RAID arrays. To accelerate time to value, the appliance arrives pre-configured with SAP HANA running on SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server and is deployed by SGI professional services. SAP provides licensing for HANA and complete, first-line appliance support.
