SGI UV 300H is a specialized offering in the SGI UV server line for in-memory computing that enables enterprises to further unlock value from information in real-time, boost innovation, and lower IT costs with SAP HANA. Featuring a highly differentiated single-node architecture, the system delivers significant performance advantages for businesses running SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA) and complex analytics at extreme scale. The single-node simplicity also helps enterprises eliminate overhead associated with clustered environments, streamline high availability, and scale-up seamlessly as data volumes grow with near-linear performance.
Integrated with the recently announced SAP HANA SPS10, SGI UV 300H capitalizes on deep collaboration between SAP, Intel and SGI to optimize SAP HANA-based workloads on multicore NUMA - non-uniform memory access - systems. This enables enterprises to leverage single-node systems with very large memory capacity and CPU cores, allowing them to enjoy optimum application performance. The unique capabilities provided by the SGI UV 300H in the areas of high-availability and disaster recovery, when used together with the advanced in-memory data processing of SAP HANA, provide an outstanding environment for running mission-critical business applications.
SGI UV 300H couples seventh-generation SGI in-memory computing technology, Intel Xeon processor E7-8890 v2, and ultrafast SGI NUMAlink 7 interconnects, and is available in a choice of deployments:
For either deployment configuration, the UV 300H is SAP-certified under general availability from 4- to 8-sockets with up 6TB of shared memory, and under controlled availability for 12-sockets with up to 9TB of shared memory, 16-sockets with up to 12TB of shared memory, and 20-sockets with up to 15TB of shared memory. The system is designed to scale up to 32-sockets and 24TB of shared memory and has not yet been certified for by SAP for SAP HANA.
"The recent NUMA enhancements to SAP HANA coupled with SGI's future-proof single-node architecture provide enterprises with excellent in-memory platform performance and scale", stated Jorge Titinger, CEO, SGI. "By working closely with SAP, we are helping make real-time a reality in the largest and most demanding application environments with the first 20-socket SAP HANA-certified in-memory server, the SGI UV 300H."
"SGI's UV 300H leverages NetApp's flash array to ensure high reliability to protect important information from potentially being lost or destroyed", stated Maria Olson, vice president, global and strategic alliances, NetApp. "The combination of SGI's technology with our storage solutions and data management allows customers to easily configure and expand their storage as needed."
"To make an immediate impact for customers, the SGI system arrives pre-configured with SAP HANA running on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server", stated Michael Miller, vice president of global alliances and marketing for SUSE. "Organisations face extreme challenges that require the right technology partnership and innovation to solve. The qualities that make SUSE Linux Enterprise the leading platform for SAP solutions on Linux - it's reliable, scalable and secure - combine with the muscle of SGI UV 300H to meet and overcome many of those specific business challenges."
"The scale achieved by the SGI UV300H platform for SAP HANA is an important milestone for our customers", stated Patrick Buddenbaum, general manager of Enterprise IT Solutions within Intel's Data Center Group. "Combining the strength of Intel Xeon E7 processors with the scaling performance of SGI's single-node system reflects a joint commitment to provide solutions which help businesses tackle their most complex, advanced analytic challenges."
