SAP HANA TDI Tailored Datacenter Integration with EMC

  1. 1. © 2014 VCE Company, LLC. All rights reserved. Robert Michael Moore (Mike) SME, WW SAP Center of Competence SAP HANA TDI TAILORED DATACENTER INTEGRATION WITH EMC
  2. 2.  HANA is a database with in-memory performance capabilities.  For SAP and their customers, it is a revolutionary platform.  Most deployments since launch, have been as a dedicated Appliance.  Appliance – pre-engineered combination of network, storage, compute.  Tailored Datacenter Integration offers flexible deployment.  IT centers would like to integrate HANA onto infrastructure and capacity they may already own. TDI allows for this. QUICK BACKGROUND, WHAT IS SAP HANA, TDI?
  3. 3. Multiple potential use cases: • Utilize existing datacenter SAN • Multiple HANA production systems (hosting, cloud) • Utilize existing datacenter 10GB network • Run SAP HANA together with other applications on shared infrastructure HANA DEPLOYED AS TDI
  4. 4. HANA EVOLUTION – BUSINESS AND DEPLOYMENT CASES Cisco portfolio covers the full spectrum DW/Analytics Business Suite Suite on HANACustomer Specific Applications Hadoop Integration Deployment Models TDI • Shared/multi- instanceDedicated/ Appliance On Prem Standardization Virtualized Cloud Ref Arch • Enterprise • SP/GSI • SAP 20102012 Customer Use Cases 2014+ Hosted
  5. 5. COMPARING APPLIANCE AND TDI Compute Network Storage Compute Network Storage Compute Applianc e TDI
  6. 6. COMPARING – CUSTOMER PROFILE Applianc e TDI Note: TDI Network is in ramp. Must be accepted by SAP & Cisco Faster time to implementation Skilled SAP infrastructure teams Hands-off like SAP implementation philosophy Large storage and/or network investments and standardization Prefer with the appliance life cycle model Resources available to manage solution Storage/Network partner is datacenter trusted advisor Dedicated, purposeful HANA infrastructure
  7. 7. COMPARING – OFFERING AND SUPPORT Applianc e TDI Pre-Engineered, Optimized, Pre- Certified solution with Delivery and Reactive Support Services Customer owns Engineering, Certification/Validation, Delivery and all Support coordination activities All specified components are required to maintain certification Customer replaces “appliance” storage and/or network with pre- validated Enterprise Storage or Network SAP or Cisco first point of contact for solution support Customer owns solution support. SAP & Cisco provide component- level support Customer adopts new life cycle management capabilities for appliance Customer leverages existing storage investment in people, process and equipment Installed by Cisco or validated partner Installed by SAP HANA Certified self or SAP HANA Certified installation partner Note: TDI Network is in ramp. Must be accepted by SAP & Cisco
  8. 8. Network Storage HANA WHY THE CONCERN? COMPARING – I/O BEHAVIOR SAP/RDBMS AND SAP/HANA Compute Network Storage RDBMS SAP App SAP transactions are processed New sales orders, customer/supplier Changes in company data is collected SAP update process sends commits for these data changes to RDBMS Network I/O as App communicates with DB RDBMS commits to disk the new data Database files are written Logs are written for rollback Storage I/O as DB server writes to disk Network Database tables and log volumes are updated SAP App Network SAP transactions are processed, queries are run. In many use cases, SAP is near real-time synchronizing various business data into HANA Network I/O as App and synch processes are continuously refreshing data Data commits are issued to memory HANA also has data calculation engines. This means data changes will occur at this layer and issue commits without delay from the App HANA logs these commits in memory to disk Storage I/O is generated, lots of it. HANA continuously logs data changes occurring in memory. Also, every 300 seconds, it is writing a server memory image to disk
  9. 9. CISCO HANA PORTFOLIO  Scale Economics: UCS chassis and fabric cost half as much in enterprise and cloud scale deployments *  Operational efficiency: Add capacity 77% faster with 67% fewer configuration steps ** • Cloud Readiness: Instant compatibility across Cisco’s ecosystem of Service Provider / Cloud Power partners • Management simplicity: Single orchestration interface across four pillars (compute, network, storage, multi-instance) • Consistency: Single family of building blocks across appliance, TDI and cloud deployment models Starter Scaleout 512G to 2TB Full Scale-Out for Private and Public Cloud 20 TB building block All-in-one Appliances 128-512 GB Application Orchestration (new) Databases Applications Sales Portal SAP BW, Business Suite, EC/BizX, LMS, OnDemand apps … Non-SAP databases Non-SAP applications SAP HANA platform, incorporating Sybase IQ & Hadoop SAP HANA Marketplace (new) Application Orchestratio n CIAC OS/VM Infrastructur e Managemen t UCS Director Cisco Application-Centric Infrastructure (new) Infrastructure Compute Storage Networking Nexus 5K to 9KUCS Cisco Cell Architecture Facilities Space, Power, Cooling, Operations, Location (national boundaries) Cloud Reference Architecture * Cisco internal comparison of HP and IBM systems scaling from a dozen to ninety-six blades ** Principled Technology study:
