Supermicro HCI Solution for SAP HANA®

With SAP HANA® projects, customers are reviewing their current infrastructure and its transformation to a more innovative solution such as hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). With the certification of SAP HANA on hyperconverged infrastructure powered by VMware vSAN for production systems, Supermicro’s customers can bring down their data center TCO by leveraging our best of breed systems.

Hyperconverged infrastructure can help reduce data center complexity, and increase scalability to break through all obstacles of conventional architecture.

With HCI, storage components share compute and memory with the server infrastructure and eliminate the need for separate storage arrays, controllers, memory, SANs, and more. It’s like creating a SAN storage out of the internal storage of vSAN cluster members.

With SAP® support and Supermicro, customers can now migrate or install their virtualized mission-critical SAP HANA systems on top of Hyperconverged Infrastructure powered by VMware vSAN.

Supermicro’s long-standing experience with VMware products such as vSphere and vSAN, was constantly shown in ReadyNode™ certification of many different systems. Especially with all flash deployments, Supermicro vSAN ReadyNode™ introduces a new high performance storage tier optimized for enterprise-class virtual environments that is simple, resilient and efficient. It is a perfect solution for enterprises to efficiently grow and manage virtualized infrastructure for maximum ROI.

Because SAP HANA certification has more demanding KPIs to meet, Supermicro assembled the most appropriate components to easily meet all certification requirements and pass the certification. Both Ultra SuperServer certified systems, SYS-2029U-E1CRT and SYS-6029U-E1CR4T, support two 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors (Cascade Lake-SP) with up to 28 cores and 3 TB RAM. They are designed to deliver the highest performance, flexibility, scalability and serviceability to demanding IT environments, and to power mission-critical enterprise workloads.

Benefits of the solution include: standardized and highly optimized for SAP HANA database workload SuperServer, combined with VMware vSAN for better TCO.
