LOWER THE OVERALL COST OF THE SAP HANA® PLATFORM
Lenovo™ ThinkSystem™ SR950 provides better three-year total cost of ownership (TCO) than competing SAP HANA appliances for scale-out and scale-up configurations
Being able to extract real-time insights from large in-memory databaseslike the SAP HANA® platform has become crucial for organizations in avariety of industries. And while the price of memory continues to decline,purchasing single-server scale-up or multi-node scale-out clusters stillrepresents a sizable investment for IT organizations. However, the priceof acquisition is only part of the cost: SAP HANA deployments can beexpensive to operate, particularly when labor costs for specialists tomanage them are factored in.
Evaluating both scale-out and scale-up configurations for SAP HANAsolutions running on servers powered by latest-generation Intel® Xeon®Scalable processors from Cisco, HPE, and Lenovo shows that Lenovo™ThinkSystem™ SR950 servers provide a lower total cost of ownership (TCO)for a wide range of memory sizes over a three-year period as comparedto Cisco UCS® C480 M5, Cisco UCS C880 M5, and HPE® Superdome®Flex rack-based servers. This lower TCO stems from both lower capitalexpenditures (CapEx) and lower operating expenses (OpEx) for theLenovo™ servers. In addition to raw TCO advantages, the Lenovo solutionsfor SAP HANA evaluated in this study also feature the same high reliabilityand customer satisfaction as other Lenovo servers.
