Fujitsu Enables Real-Time Business Analytics With SAP In-Memory Appliance (SAP HANATM) Software

Delivers New In-Memory Appliance That Integrates Optimized Fujitsu Infrastructure and SAP HANA

SUNNYVALE, CA (Marketwire), May 16, 2011

Fujitsu  announces that its servers, storage and network solutions have now been validated by SAP AG for use with the SAP In-Memory Appliance (SAP HANATM) software, a flexible, multipurpose, data source agnostic in-memory appliance. By combining certified, optimized Fujitsu PRIMERGY® servers, ETERNUS® storage and Fujitsu network infrastructure with SAP® software components, customers can use a top-notch appliance that draws on in-memory technology to quickly analyze massive amounts of transactional business data in real time.

SAP itself uses, among others, a Fujitsu infrastructure to run SAP HANA in its own datacenters. SAP HANA provides enterprises with instant insight into their business operations, delivering improved system performance and lowering operational risks. The software also dramatically improves speed by analyzing data within server memory, rather than offloading it to disk-based systems. Fujitsu is among the first vendors able to provide a validated platform configuration to run SAP HANA, thus providing customers with a reliable, optimized and scalable infrastructure built on its high-performance PRIMERGY RX600 and RX900 rack servers, ETERNUS storage and network solutions.

As an SAP global partner, Fujitsu will provide a complete infrastructure solution for SAP HANA, helping customers get maximum benefit as quickly as possible and ensuring that the technology is straightforward to use and easy to administer. Comprehensive services, built on best practices, including preinstalled infrastructure, integration and jump start delivery services, will enhance the power of SAP HANA. Fujitsu will also offer customers with both proactive and reactive 24x7 support, defined Service Level Agreements (SLAs), and regular system health checks through Fujitsu Solution Contract for the SAP HANA infrastructure.

Says Richard McCormack, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Systems at Fujitsu America: "Businesses today need to be agile, with the ability to make vital choices at the speed of thought -- because windows of opportunity do not stay open for long. Previous tools could not process vast amounts of data sufficiently and quickly enough to support real-time decision making -- but the game has changed with SAP HANA running on and supported by Fujitsu, enabling unparalleled insight into data, whatever the size of the organization. We're pleased to show this new appliance during the SAPPHIRE NOW event at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, May 16-18, booth 2733."

Fujitsu and SAP have a long-standing partnership, covering technology, hosting and services and as such have already worked closely together on key projects such as the Business Warehouse Accelerator infrastructure solution. Fujitsu is a founding member of the Future SOC Lab, a research lab on on-demand systems that the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) has established. Several industry partners, among them Fujitsu and SAP, are cooperating to support research in how hardware and software can benefit from the exponential increases in main memory and massive parallel computing power.

The Fujitsu infrastructure for SAP HANA is built on high-performance, industry-standard technology, runs the Novell® SLES operating system, and is available in a range of models tailored to individual business needs. It combines highly scalable PRIMERGY servers consisting of two to eight Intel® Xeon® processors, between 128GB and 1TB of main memory, and Fujitsu ETERNUS storage and additional server-attached, storage memory technologies from Fusion-io. Preinstalled SAP software includes a real-time replication service for SAP ERP and an optimized, in-memory version of the SAP® BusinessObjects Strategic Workforce Planning solution. Highly tuned integration, along with other business intelligence solutions from SAP® BusinessObjects, provides further insight and analytics through existing interfaces.
