DataCore Cuts Downtime and Delivers High Performance and Cost-Effective Storage for SAP HANA® Applications

DataCore SANsymphony™ Recertified as Enterprise Storage Solution for SAP HANA

FT LAUDERDALE, FL, April 2, 2019 DataCore Software today announced that  SANsymphony™ has been recertified by SAP as an enterprise storage solution for the SAP HANA® platform. Leveraging DataCore’s SANsymphony enterprise-class storage platform with SAP HANA offers customers a highly available, powerful, efficient and flexible storage solution that serves as the foundation of the modern data center. This certification enables DataCore Software customers to leverage their existing hardware and infrastructure components for their SAP HANA-based environments, providing further choice for organizations even when working in heterogeneous environments.

“Thanks to DataCore, we are able to deliver scalable, cost-efficient and future-proof high-performance storage architectures to our customers running SAP HANA workloads,” said Ralf Schaufler, CTO at Leitwerk AG. “Storage is smarter, more powerful, and more efficient with DataCore.”

“We use SAP S/4HANA together with DataCore SANsymphony to manage our automatic warehouse with 700,000 articles,” said Andreas Mürle, head of division at K – Mail Order GmbH & Co. KG. “It helps us to achieve a maximum time of 90 minutes from order entry to shipment readiness and to ship up to 100,000 orders per day.”

DataCore offers a proven, mature, and reliable enterprise-class storage platform along with industry-leading performance due to its unique Adaptive Parallel I/O technology. With DataCore, it is easy for users to evolve among deployment models while extending the life of existing hardware to maximize investments. The integrated enterprise-wide solution enables customers to have all their storage systems under one set of services, and the platform is future ready, so storage evolves along with technology and needs—without vendor or technology lock-in. Furthermore, DataCore provides live transition and migration of data without impacting the application infrastructure for risk-free migrations with no downtime.

DataCore SANsymphony successfully completed the SAP HANA Hardware Certification for Enterprise Storage in 2016 and is used in production by numerous IT organizations around the world. The software solution provides a number of specific benefits for SAP HANA environments including:

  • Increased availability and performance for production environments
    • Zero-touch mirroring for high availability and disaster recovery between heterogeneous storage
    • Continuous Data Protection that works as a time machine to protect against any unwanted data change
    • Parallelization and AI-assisted smart caching that deliver incredible performance on legacy or all flash array systems
  • Simple cloning with no impact to performance for test, dev and staging environments that can leverage lower-cost storage systems, and provide a non-disruptive switch to production
  • An easy to create reporting system to avoid performance impact on production
  • Smooth upgrade to new storage systems and a simple path to evolve to hyperconverged or hybrid-converged environments with no migrations needed

“Data is the heart of any modern business, but most IT departments spend too much time and money on storage systems,” said Gerado A. Dada, CMO of DataCore Software. “Customers implementing SAP HANA with DataCore are able to optimize storage and reduce costs. As a certified enterprise storage solution for SAP HANA, DataCore offers IT departments the freedom from being locked to expensive proprietary systems, and the ability to enjoy the benefits of new technologies faster.”

SAP HANA combines database, data processing, and application platform capabilities in-memory. The platform provides libraries for predictive, planning, text processing, spatial and business analytics. By providing advanced capabilities, such as predictive text analytics, spatial processing and data virtualization on the same architecture, it further simplifies application development and processing across big-data sources and structures. This makes SAP HANA a highly suitable platform for building and deploying next-generation, real-time applications and analytics.
