SAP is responding to customer demands for extremely flexible and money-saving IT concepts and is certifying hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI) for SAP HANA®. Fujitsu is one of the first manufacturers to have a 4-socket system certified by SAP for VMware vSAN. This white paper provides an overview of the solution and outlines the criteria that businesses that use SAP solutions should keep in mind when running productive HCI environments.
Fujitsu is one of the first manufacturers to receive SAP certification of a hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) based on VMware vSAN with a 4-socket server for SAP HANA. The FUJITSU Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN is based on VMware vSphere, the leading virtualization platform. The native vSAN in vSphere is capable of using all 4 CPU sockets and the 6 TB of memory in a PRIMERGY RX4770 M4 server when running SAP HANA. In other words, most customers can run their SAP HANA production databases with only one node. PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN thus offers the highest levels of performance and cost-effectiveness for software-defined SAP operation.
