These solutions are supported by the HP Haven Big Data platform featuring HP Vertica as well as HP HyperScale Big Data Ecosystem partners, including Cleversafe, Scality, Cloudera and Hortonworks.
The solutions also support key open source projects such as Ceph, OpenStack Swift and Apache Hadoop. The HP Apollo 4000 servers, when combined with HP Moonshot, create the foundation for the HP Big Data Reference Architecture, an innovative new Hadoop infrastructure design that leverages the strength of HP's portfolio to deliver a differentiated solution.
The HP Big Data Reference Architecture deploys a standard Hadoop distribution in an asymmetric fashion, enabling customers to scale storage and compute independently, providing up to twice the performance in 50 percent less space.
This results in substantial reduction in total cost of ownership, as well as improvements in performance and energy efficiency, according to a company statement. Data-intensive, scale-up workloads such as in-memory and structured databases require high performance, availability and reliability as well as disaster tolerance.
HP aims to address these requirements with a scale-up Compute portfolio consisting of HP Integrity Superdome X as well as HP ProLiant DL580, 560 and BL660c Gen9 servers. The Integrity Superdome X is now certified for Windows and supports SQL Server 2014 deployments.
The ConvergedSystem portfolio for SAP HANA is designed for power and reliability, while engineered to deliver high performance, high availability and scalability that is fully compatible with the latest generation business suite, SAP S/4HANA.
"Organisations with medium-sized SAP solution-based landscapes looking for an economical way to start their journey can look to the HP ConvergedSystem 500 for SAP HANA," according to a company statement.
"Now certified with the new Intel Xeon E7 V3 architecture, this integrated system offers a cost-effective platform for deployments of SAP S/4HANA." The HP Apollo 2000, Big Data Reference Architecture and HP Integrity Superdome X are available now, and the HP ProLiant DL580 Gen9 is expected to be available in Australia in May 2015.
The HP Apollo 4000 family, HP ProLiant DL560 Gen9 and HP ProLiant BL660c Gen9 are expected to be available in June 2015. HP ConvergedSystem 500 for SAP HANA with Intel Xeon Processor E7 V3 Family architecture will be available in Australia starting June 2015. The HP StoreOnce Plug-in for SAP HANA is available at no cost to existing HP StoreOnce Backup customers beginning in May 2015, as part of an early access program with general availability scheduled for June 2015.
Use of the plug-in requires an HP StoreOnce Catalyst software license.
