Kubernetes creates a shift from machine-based infrastructure and operations to application-focused operations. This shift increases agility and reduces friction, but it creates problems for enterprises dependent on traditional backup tools for data protection. These solutions, built to backup machines, don’t understand key Kubernetes concepts like container-granularity, namespaces, Kubernetes configurations, backing up distributed databases, and multi-cloud operations. Enter PX-Backup, the Kubernetes-native data protection solution from Portworx.

Improve SAP HANA TCO with Data-tiering & Intel Optane Acceleration

May 12, 2021 | 12:00pm PT

Intel

Food 4 Thought

SAP HANA’s data tiering solution, Native Storage Extension (NSE), supports S/4HANA and allows you to move up to 80% of HANA data into a warm data tier. Housing this data outside of in-memory HANA, generally reduces costs by a similar percentage!

 

But traditionally such savings also came with a stiff performance penalty when you bring that warm data back into HANA for processing. No More.

 

Pure Storage has partnered with Intel to integrate their new Optane SSD memory into our FlashArray solutions for SAP. Optane dramatically reduces the latency associated your data’s return trip to HANA. With Optane SSD, aka DirectMemoryTM Cache from Pure Storage, your users will not notice any difference compared to leaving their entire dataset in-memory. But your IT budget will love you.

 

Think of all you can do with the savings!

 

3 Key Questions:

 

  • What is HANA NSE and how does it work?
  • What is Intel Optane SSD for Storage?
  • How does NSE & Optane reduce HANA Total Cost of Ownership?
