SGI a global leader in high-performance solutions for compute, data analytics and data management, announced that enterprises can now leverage the Intel-based SGI UV 300H server in a multi-node cluster (scale out) to run Business Warehouse (SAP BW) on Hana or new BW/4HANA.
Unique to SGI, the cluster nodes can later be reconfigured as single-node systems with 1 to 32TB of shared memory (scale up) to run S/4 and other real-time applications. SGI also announced that deployments of the SGI UV 300H as a single-node system provide in total over 800 Terabytes of in-memory computing capacity to organizations running Hana. These announcements reflect SGI’s broadening leadership in high-performance data analytics and continuing innovation to achieve greater insight and gain competitive advantages.
SGI UV 300H is now SAP-certified under general availability in a clustered scale-out configuration to run BW on Hana and BW/4Hana using four to sixteen 8-socket nodes and up to 56 Terabytes of in-memory computing capacity.
When business lines wish to move to real-time analytics utilizing Business Suite, Bank Analyzer, S/4 Finance, or other S/4 applications, the clustered systems can be fully repurposed to form single-node systems with 4 to 32 sockets. By avoiding the need to “rip and replace” multi-node clusters when single-node systems are required, IT organizations can enjoy considerable cost savings by protecting investments and reduce time to solution.
More than 100 single-node SGI UV 300H systems have been installed in organizations worldwide to provide data analytics in real time with SAP HANA and enable business lines to know when, where and how customers are buying without delay; view inventories, supply chains or financials with up-to-the-second accuracy; and spot market changes early and adjust with precision.
These SGI systems deliver in total over 800 of in-memory computing capacity – reflecting customer capacity growth in excess of 300% over the past twelve months.
