Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS Hyperconvergence-Based Solution Certified for SAP HANA®
London, United Kingdom, 30 August, 2018 — Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, announced today that its AHV hypervisor and Enterprise Cloud OS platform hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solution, has met SAP’s criteria for running production SAP HANA® deployments. This will allow businesses that use SAP solutions to benefit from the simplicity and agility of leading HCI technology to deliver a modern IT architecture for SAP’s leading in-memory relational database platform.
SAP has certified the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS platform with AHV virtualisation for SAP HANA as part of SAP’s new HCI certification program. SAP HANA is revolutionising the speed of data processing for reporting, analytics and computational tasks. Nutanix has proven the performance and scalability required for successful SAP HANA enterprise deployments, along with simple Day-2 operations of SAP environments. This includes the ability to deliver superior throughput rates with minimal latency, as well as ensure high availability during periods of heavy database usage.
“We are delighted to announce this achievement. As customers increasingly re-platform their portfolio of enterprise workloads on Nutanix, our certification will enable them to use a single platform for all their workloads,” said Sunil Potti, Chief Product and Development Officer, Nutanix. “The certification for SAP HANA gives our customers a more modern infrastructure option. Enterprises will be able to leverage Nutanix and SAP to deliver value to their organisations by powering their database services, analytics processing, app development and more — with predictable performance and linear scalability.”
Businesses that use SAP solutions will be able to leverage the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS platform in production and non-production environments to rapidly provision, simplify management and easily scale their IT infrastructure for faster time to value for SAP HANA and other SAP applications.
Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software is certified today for SAP NetWeaver® based landscapes including SAP S/4HANA® application servers and can be used for production to scale-up SAP HANA databases.
