Why SGI® UV™ for SAP HANA®?

As the memory in SGI’s High Performance Computing (HPC) servers is growing from 24TB to 48TB the limits on working with big data are dissolving.  This scale-up trend has enabled new in-memory computing technologies like SAP HANA® to offer customers real-time analytics and live transactional awareness of their data.  By storing this valuable data in-memory as opposed to on disk, organizations will be able to react faster and enable decisions to identify potential new business opportunities.

The UV 300H was designed with SAP’s High-Performance ANalytic Appliance or ‘HANA’ in mind.  Building on SGI’s 20 years of in-memory computing expertise, this purpose built solution offers customers the best way to scale up this single node, single system image computing appliance to achieve faster business analytics breakthroughs with SAP HANA. 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).

Reduce time to value in your data analysis with this proven scale-up server architecture. SGI’s UV 300H scales higher providing in-memory data up to 6TB today in a one node server. Make faster, smarter decisions and gain competitive advantage by fully leveraging SAP HANA on SGI’s UV 300H. Be sure to check out the link below for the white paper.
