Hewlett-Packard on Wednesday launched a new integrated system designed for SAP HANA, an in-memory database for analytics and big data.

SAP's roadmap: All HANA all the time

According to HP, its ConvergedSystem for SAP HANA is built on its Sharks platform. Sharks was outlined in late 2013 as a way to tailor, configure, and quote a ConvergedSystem in 20 minutes. The ConvergedSystems on Sharks are used for virtualization and HP's Vertica big data systems to name a few.

The portfolio includes:

  • HP ConvergedSystem 500 for SAP HANA, which can be operational in 15 days from ordering.
  • Project Kraken, which revolves around simplifying SAP HANA infrastructure and operations.
  • Data management tools such as HP Serviceguard, an automated failover and disaster tolerant system.
  • Storage and workload prioritization technology.

For HP, the ConvergedSystem allows it to deliver more hardware systems with integrated compute, storage, networking, and software faster. SAP HANA gets more throughput. As a bonus for both companies, the combination of HANA and Vertica could be an analytics tag team.
