Huawei OceanStor Dorado V3 certified for SAP HANA®

Huawei announced at GITEX 2017 that its all flash storage OceanStor Dorado V3 is now certified as an enterprise storage solution for real-time database SAP HANA®. Leveraging OceanStor Dorado V3 with SAP HANA offers outstanding performance and reliability to Government, Oil & Gas, finance, public service and many other industries.

Customers today are challenged by surging data volumes, increasing performance requirements, as well as storage efficiency. An end-to-end high-performance real-time computing platform is required to help them meet these challenges. SAP HANA, based on in-memory computing, provides a data platform for transactions, business analytics, predictive analytics, planning and business processing. OceanStor Dorado V3 can support two times more SAP HANA nodes than a traditional storage system with the same capacity, enabling SAP HANA nodes to scale up and out more flexibly.

”We strive to ensure that our customers are using the latest technologies, and our products are certified with the latest standards. It keeps our customers at ease, and gives them access to innovative data services. The certification of our OceanStor Dorado V3 enterprise storage solution for SAP HANA is further proof of Huawei’s dedication to providing customers with better data services, with data reliability and processing efficiency placed on top,” said Walid Gomaa Ahmed Moustafa, General Manager of Data Center Solutions for Huawei Middle East. “This certification signifies a milestone in the long-running cooperation between Huawei and SAP. We hope to further our partnership with SAP and continue offering customers new, innovative data-service experience,” he said.

Riding on Huawei’s best practices related to SAP® software in industries, OceanStor Dorado V3 can improve the efficiency of a system running SAP software by at least 30%, with the data query time shortened to the microsecond level, expediting online data transactions and real-time analytics.

OceanStor Dorado V3 is equipped with such value-added features as HyperMetro gateway-free active-active design that supports business availability; remote replication for enhanced disaster-recovery; and lossless snapshot.

Taking advantage of SAP’s extensive and professional experience regarding platform and enterprise solutions as well as market insight, Huawei intends to work together with SAP to develop a series of solutions based on SAP HANA. These solutions will be designed to provide real-time data processing and insight capabilities, targeted at enhancing operational efficiency and accelerating digital transformation.
