Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) has unveiled a series of new Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) solutions for SAP HANA environments based on the latest Intel XEON E5 and E7 processors.
These include the UCP 1000 for SAP HANA, UCP 6000 for SAP S/4HANA, UCP 6000 for SAP HANA Dynamic Tiering, and new analytics capabilities for UCP 6000 for SAP HANA.
The new systems and enhancements provide optimized converged infrastructure platforms that allow customers to run multiple applications on a single platform, which reduces cost, complexity and data center footprint.
The low-cost Hitachi UCP 1000 for SAP HANA is best suited for test and development and for small and medium-size enterprise environments, while the UCP 6000 systems help meet the needs of the most demanding data center applications.
UCP 6000 for SAP HANA Dynamic Tiering reduces data storage cost by placing active data in memory and placing less frequently accessed data in lower-cost storage. The analytics with UCP 6000 for SAP HANA enable users to consolidate data from multiple application sources, allowing users to quickly turn data into business insights.
HDS also announced that its UCP 6000 system has been added to SAP Co-Innovation Lab to develop, test and demonstrate the reference architecture. This project pursues the vision of the SAP Co-Innovation Lab, which is to enable SAP and its partners to produce innovative solutions with reduced risk while accelerating time to market.
