Nutanix announced that its AHV hypervisor and Enterprise Cloud OS platform hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solution have met SAP’s criteria for running production Hana deployments.
This will allow businesses that use SAP solutions to benefit from simple and agile HCI technology. This approach delivers a modern IT architecture for SAP’s in-memory relational database platform.
SAP has certified the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS platform with AHV virtualization for SAP Hana as part of its new HCI certification program. SAP Hana is aiming to accelerate the speed of data processing for reporting, analytics and computational tasks.
Nutanix has proven the performance and scalability required for successful Hana enterprise deployments, along with simple Day-2 operations of SAP environments. This includes the ability to deliver better throughput rates with minimized latency. Furthermore, it ensures high availability during periods of heavy database usage.
“We are happy to announce this achievement,” said Sunil Potti, Chief Product and Development Officer at Nutanix. “Customers increasingly re-platform their portfolio of enterprise workloads on our platform. Therefore, our certification will enable them to use a single platform for all their workloads.”
The certification for Hana gives customers a more modern infrastructure option. Additionally, Sunil Potti said, “Enterprises will be able to use Nutanix and SAP to help them add value to their organizations. This will be achieved by powering their database services, analytics processing and more — with predictable performance and linear scalability.”
Consequently, businesses that use SAP solutions will be able to employ the Enterprise Cloud OS platform. They will be able to employ it in production and non-production environments. Therefore, they can use it to provision, simplify management and easily scale their IT infrastructure for faster time to value for Hana and other SAP applications.
