With increasing adoption of SAP HANA by large enterprises, the customer requirements for single-node architectures are growing. Partnering with Dell allows SGI to help joint customers capitalize on the scalability and simplicity of large scale, single-node systems. It is expected that the market for 8-socket or greater appliances running on SAP HANA will increase and be in excess of $1B by 2018.
The SGI UV 300H is a purpose-built, in-memory computing platform for large or growing environments running on SAP HANA. Using a differentiated, single-node architecture, the SGI appliance delivers outstanding performance to gain the business breakthroughs of SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA) and other environments running on SAP HANA at extreme scale. The simplicity of the single-node system also helps enterprises optimize clustered systems management resources, helps to ensure high availability and allows enterprises to expand seamlessly with near-linear performance. The appliance is currently SAP-certified as a 4-, 8-, 12-, or 16-socket single-node system with up to 12TBs of in-memory computing capacity.
