HP brings ConvergedSystem for SAP HANA

HP on Wednesday announced the introduction of HP ConvergedSystem for SAP HANA.

Palo Alto, Calif.-based HP said enterprises are adopting in-memory computing (IMC) technologies of SAP HANA to build next-generation data management platforms that unlock operational efficiencies and turn large amounts of data into real-time, actionable business insights.

HP ConvergedSystem portfolio for SAP HANA delivers the architecture to deploy data management platforms with systems that can scale to meet evolving business needs—from managing analytics and data warehousing workloads to running mission-critical business applications.


The new HP ConvergedSystem portfolio for SAP HANA includes HP ConvergedSystem 500 for SAP HANA and HP Serviceguard for SAP HANA.

While HP ConvergedSystem 500 for SAP HANA helps speeds time to value for analytics and data warehousing workloads with a system that is operational in as few as 15 days of ordering, HP Serviceguard for SAP HANA ensures service levels with automated failover and disaster-tolerant solution for SAP HANA that helps protect clients against unplanned downtime.

HP said Project Kraken is the industry’s only incubated system that will enable clients to simplify their SAP HANA infrastructure and speed business operations with up to 12 terabytes of data in a single memory pool to power mission-critical business apps.

Tom Joyce, senior vice president and general manager, Converged Systems, HP, said: “SAP HANA provides a catalyst for business transformation and HP has the architecture, expertise and vision to meet its infrastructure needs. HP is investing in delivering the infrastructure that clients need to meet requirements of environments running SAP HANA.”

HP ConvergedSystem 500 for SAP HANA is based on a modular, standards-based architecture that gives clients the flexibility to start small and add capacity in as few as five days. Configurations range from 256 gigabytes to 2-terabyte scale-up systems within a single memory pool, and up to 16 terabytes with scale-out systems that bridge memory across systems.

The starting price of HP ConvergedSystem 500 for SAP HANA will be $87,787 including HP support and deployment services, while HP Serviceguard for scale-up configurations will cost you $38,980 including HP support.

Project Kraken is expected to be available worldwide later this year.
