SAN JOSE, California, March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

-- Ease of Enterprise Database Management on HCI Environments

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMCI), a global leader in enterprise 
computing, storage, networking solutions, and green computing technology, 
announced the availability of new SAP HANA(R) servers certified by SAP for 
VMware HCI.  With certification on VMware vSphere and vSAN, Supermicro servers 
fueled by 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors including Intel Optane 
persistent memory enable the integration of mission-critical SAP HANA 
deployments on HCI, giving customers enterprise database abilities and the 
opportunity to leverage the value, benefit, and simplicity of HCI for their SAP 

"With Supermicro servers certified for VMware HCI powered by vSAN, SAP 
customers now have the best of breed solutions for enterprises to efficiently 
scale, manage, and virtualize their SAP infrastructures for maximum ROI," said 
Raju Penumatcha, senior vice president and chief product officer, Supermicro.

Supermicro's SYS-2029U-E1CRT and SYS-6029U-E1CRT4 systems have been certified 
on VMWare vSAN version 6.6, vSphere version 6.7, and SAP HANA 2.0.  Supermicro 
is one of the first hardware vendors using the new 2nd Generation Intel Xeon 
Scalable processors as well as Intel Optane persistent memory to enable 
enterprises to achieve the highest performance, capability and value from their 
SAP HANA deployments.  Moreover, since the CPUs include unique built-in AI 
acceleration capabilities of Intel DL Boost, these platforms provide the 
agility to extract further insights from AI-infused workloads.

"SAP recognizes that HCI is one of the fastest-growing enterprise architectures 
in the industry," said Martin Heisig, Head of SAP HANA Technology Innovation 
Network. "When deploying SAP S/4HANA on VMware HCI, customers are able to gain 
tremendous benefit from the latest HW/SW technologies to drive scalability and 
lower operational costs for SAP HANA deployments." 

Supermicro's collaboration with VMware delivers an alternative to the 
traditional Fiber Channel SAN-based virtualization infrastructure, which is 
well-known for its complexity and interoperability challenges. HCI powered by 
VMware vSAN brings compute, storage, and the hypervisor together into a single 
system to reduce data center complexity and increase scalability. This approach 
overcomes the obstacles of conventional architectures, especially SAN and NAS 
storage, including their networking challenges or issues.  HCI uses 
direct-attached storage in a Software-Defined Storage (SDS) architecture backed 
by the growth of storage-dense servers and high-performance flash drives.

"VMWare is pleased to partner with Supermicro to bring the latest SAP HANA 
certified platforms based on VMware vSAN," said Lee Caswell, vice president, 
Marketing HCI Business Unit, VMware. "High-performance databases are the latest 
workloads to embrace the undeniable price-performance of Hyperconverged 
Infrastructure (HCI). With VMware vSAN and Supermicro, customers can run their 
largest SAP HANA dev ops and production deployments with up to 64 nodes and a 
maximum of 192 terabytes of memory."
