 Workload Optimized Solutions for SAPHANA deliver leading performance andscaling with faster deployment
In today’s data-driven culture, tools for business analysis are quickly evolving. Organizations need new ways to leverage critical data on the fly to not only accelerate decision making, but also to gain insights into key trends. The ability to instantly explore, augment and analyze all data innear-real time could deliver the competitive edge your organization needsto make better decisions faster—as well as take advantage of favorablemarket conditions, customer trends, price fluctuations and other factorsthat directly influence the bottom line.SAP HANA, delivered on IBM eX5 enterprise servers with fifth-generation IBM® Enterprise X-Architecture® technology (eX5), helpstransform the enterprise by addressing current needs while delivering therobust scalability and performance needed to accommodate growth. SAPHANA running on powerful IBM eX5 enterprise servers with Intel Xeonprocessor E7 family combines the speed and efficiency of in-memory processing with the ability to analyze massive amounts of business data—enabling companies to eliminate barriers between real-time events andreal-time business decisions.
Innovative analytic appliance
 To support today’s information-critical business environment, SAPHANA gives companies the ability to process huge amounts of data fasterthan ever before. The appliance lets business users instantly access, modeland analyze all of a company’s transactional and analytical data from vir-tually any data source in real time, in a single environment, without impacting existing applications or systems.

Solution Brief 
IBM Systems and Technology
 The result is accelerated business intelligence (BI), reportingand analysis capabilities with direct access to the in-memory data models residing in SAP In-Memory Database software. Advanced analytical workflows and planning functionality directly access operational data from SAP ERP or othersources. SAP HANA provides a high-speed data warehouseenvironment, with SAP In-Memory Database serving as anext-generation, in-memory acceleration engine.Delivered on IBM eX5 enterprise servers that provide leadingperformance and scalability, SAP HANA efficiently processesand analyzes massive amounts of data by packaging SAP’s useof in-memory technology, columnar database design, data com-pression and massive parallel processing together with essentialtools and functionality such as data replication and analyticmodeling. Made possible through recent technology advances that com-bine large, scalable memory, multi-core processing, fast solid-state storage and data management, in-memory computingleverages these technology innovations to establish a continuousreal-time link between insight, foresight and action to deliversignificantly accelerated business performance and reduced totalcost of ownership (TCO). To explore, model and analyze data in real time, SAP HANA can be leveraged as a high-performance “side-by-side” datamart to an existing database; it can also serve as the databasein SAP Business Suite™ and SAP NetWeaver™ Business Warehouse environments.
IBM eX5 systems with the Intel Xeonprocessor E7 family power SAP HANA
IBM is the first to decouple memory and input/output (I/O)from the processor—moving processing power from what’s the-oretically possible to what’s actually possible. IBM System x®servers with fifth-generation IBM eX5 technology enable SAPHANA customers to benefit from a shared vision that deliverssimplicity and automation designed to help organizationsaccelerate business outcomes while lowering TCO. These System x servers are equipped with processors from theIntel Xeon processor E7 family, which combine exceptional raw compute power with increased memory bandwidth and support for significantly greater memory capacity to deliver superiorperformance to previous-generation processors. With up toten cores in each processor, the four-socket x3950 X5 can bescaled to 40 cores and 80 threads with the use of IntelHyper-Threading Technology. Organizations can achieveextreme scaling within each node for running demanding work-loads on a compact system. IBM System x servers based on theIntel Xeon processor E7 family offer 20x more performancethan single-core servers,

enabling greater responsiveness fromSAP applications.Co-innovation between Intel and SAP stretches back more than10 years, and the latest manifestation is the excellent resultsfrom SAP HANA on the Intel Xeon processor E7 family, forextraordinary efficiency and business value:
●
Intelligent performance tailors processor operation dynami-cally to the needs of the workload, for high throughput whenit matters most.
●
 Automated energy efficiency powers up only those processorcomponents that are needed at any given time, for break-through performance per watt and ROI.
●
 Advanced reliability keeps the server running smoothly whenotherwise-unrecoverable processor or memory errors occur.

IBM Systems and Technology
In addition, Intel Xeon E7 Processors feature energy efficiency technology (Intel Intelligent Power Technology (IPT))leveraged from Intel’s Efficient Performance product line. IPTautomatically shifts the CPU and memory into the lowest avail-able power state, while delivering the performance you need.
Leading performance
IBM eX5 enterprise servers with Intel Xeon processors offerextreme memory and performance scalability. With improvedhardware economics and new technology offerings, IBM ishelping SAP realize a real-time enterprise with in-memory business applications. IBM eX5 enterprise servers deliver along history of leading SAP benchmark performance.

 In addition, eX5 features such as eXFlash solid-state disk technology can yield significant performance improvements instorage access, helping deliver an optimized system solution forSAP HANA. Standard features in the solution such as the HighIOPS MLC Mono Adapter for IBM System x can also providefast access to storage.SAP HANA benefits dramatically from high-speed IntelQuickPath processor-to-memory interconnects and the latest processor instructions, Streaming SIMD Extensions 4.x. Those features eliminate many I/O bottlenecks, so processorheadroom is available to generate excellent throughput andresponsiveness. SAP HANA is also engineered to take particu-lar advantage of RAS (reliability, availability, and serviceability)features of the Intel Xeon processor E7 family, especially errorcorrection through Machine Check Architecture Recovery, formission-critical implementations.
Enterprise platform investment withworkload optimized solutions
Based on scalable IBM eX5 technology included inIBM System x3690 X5 and System x3950 X5 servers, SAPHANA offers a solution that can help meet the need to analyzegrowing amounts of transactional data—delivering significant gains in both performance and scalability in a single, flexibleappliance.IBM offers several Workload Optimized Solution models forSAP HANA. These Workload Optimized Solutions areserver models, based on the 2-socket x3690 X5 and 4-socket  x3950 X5, are optimally designed and certified by SAP. They are delivered preconfigured with key software components pre-installed to help speed delivery and deployment of the solution. The x3690 X5–based configurations offer 128 to 256 GB of memory and incorporate IBM eXFlash solid-state disk.
