Running on Suse Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications, SAP Hana users can now take advantage of high-capacity Intel Optane DC persistent memory in the data center. Users can optimize their workloads by moving and maintaining larger amounts of data closer to the processor. Consequently, they minimize the higher latency of fetching data from system storage during maintenance.
Suse’s support for Intel Optane DC persistent memory is another way Suse is helping customers. They now can more easily transform their IT infrastructures. Consequently, they can reduce costs, deliver higher performance and compete more efficiently.
“Persistent memory technology will spark new applications for data access and storage,” said Thomas Di Giacomo, Suse CTO. “We offer a fully supported solution built on Intel Optane DC persistent memory. Consequently, businesses can take greater advantage of the performance of SAP Hana. Suse continues to partner with companies like SAP and Intel to serve customers worldwide who are looking to fuel growth by transforming their IT infrastructure. It is their needs that drive the direction of our innovation.”
New capabilities for the datacentric era
Alper Ilkbahar, Intel, said, “Intel Optane DC enables cost-effective, large-capacity in-memory database solutions. It also helps to provide greater system uptime and faster recovery after power cycles. Furthermore, it delivers higher-performance cloud-scale applications.”
Ilkbahar added, “By working together with Suse and SAP, we enable our customers to take advantage of a whole new generation of applications and services. They, in turn, can deliver revolutionary capabilities for the datacentric era.”
Martin Heisig, SAP Hana Technology Innovation Network, said, “The ability to deliver persistent memory for SAP Hana is a significant milestone in our ongoing relationship with Suse and Intel. The SAP Digital Core is built on the concept of simplifying the infrastructure for increased productivity and real-time insights.”
SAP Hana offers businesses of all sizes a high-performance data base solution for their SAP applications. What can customers using SLES for SAP Applications running Hana workloads on Intel Optane DC persistent memory expect? Infrastructure cost savings alongside a reduction in management overhead.
Because Hana workloads run on Linux, Suse Linux Enterprise is currently the only solution to offer support for Hana and Intel Optane DC persistent memory.
