HP and SAP summon Channel to release the "Kraken"

Brian Karlovsky | June 3, 2014
HP has called on the channel to help it bring the promise of big data to the market with the launch of its expanded converged system portfolio for SAP HANA.

It is preconfigured, optimised and tested by HP Factory Express, enabling clients to order, install and operate the system in as little as 30 days.

Thakur said HP and IDC expected see 30-40 per cent growth year to year on converged systems.

"This is really exciting for us and our channel partners we are working very hard at making sure our partners are taking these products to market."

HP is also bringing new cloud-based services to SAP HANA through HP Helion Business Applications for SAP solutions.

This solution extends the power of the cloud across infrastructure, applications and information.

It is also built on HP Converged Infrastructure, the managed cloud combines server, storage and network resources to provide customers with a secure hosted environment to run critical business applications with high availability from multiple locations — reducing latency. It is capable of meeting data-sovereignty requirements. The HP Helion Business Applications deployment model may also be enabled via the HP as-a-Service Offering for SAP HANA.

According to a company statement, this lets clients take advantage of the platform while financing through an OpEx consumption model for predictable monthly payment options that align operational and financial requirements to the business.

SAP senior vice president, corporate business, Kevin Ichhpurani, said the partnership with HP had always been about co-innovating and collaborating to provide new technology solutions that helped customers transform their business.

"The new HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA further extends the power of SAP HANA into enterprise organisations, supporting massive data sets and mission-critical workloads, speeding up response times and reducing costs, all in a single platform, near real-time environment," he said.
