Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) today announced new Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) offerings for SAP HANA environments based on the latest Intel XEON E5 and E7 processors.
Launched at the Sapphire user conference in Orlando was the UCP 1000 for SAP HANA, UCP 6000 for SAP S/4HANA, UCP 6000 for SAP HANA Dynamic Tiering, and new analytics capabilities for UCP 6000 for SAP HANA.
The new systems and enhancements allow organizations to run multiple applications on a single platform, which the company said reduces cost, complexity and data center footprint, the company said.
The Hitachi UCP 1000 for SAP HANA can be used for test and development and for small and medium-size enterprise environments, while the UCP 6000 systems help meet the needs of the most demanding data center applications.
UCP 6000 for SAP HANA Dynamic Tiering reduces data storage cost by placing active data in memory and placing less frequently accessed data in lower-cost storage. The analytics with UCP 6000 for SAP HANA enable users to consolidate data from multiple application sources, allowing users to turn data into business insights, HDS said in a release
“As the journey to digital transformation puts data at the center of business strategy, converged infrastructures become a more critical element of corporate success,” the company said.
HDS also announced that its UCP 6000 system has been added to SAP Co-Innovation Lab to develop, test and demonstrate the reference architecture.
“Our strategic relationship with SAP is helping customers accelerate their journey through digital transformation as well as modern consumption, application development and IT delivery models,” said Paul Lewis, CTO, Hitachi Data Systems Canada.
He added that the two organizations can help “customers harness the power of their data and address growing market requirements around cloud, analytics, and the Internet of Things.”
