Intel Optane PMem Boosts SAP HANA Huawei Rack Server Performance

FusionServer Pro 2488H V5 rack servers, Huawei’s latest SAP HANA certified product lineup, runs on cutting-edge technology from Intel Optane Persistent Memory and Xeon Scalable processors.

The Huawei rack server lineup which passed the SAP HANA certification for SAP BW on HANA,SAP BW/4HANA, Data Mart and SAP S/4HANA scale-out appliance solutions in December 2019, delivers real-time applications that creatively integrates data analysis and application interaction into memory to relieve performance bottlenecks.

To improve ROI for customers, FusionServer Pro rack servers integrate Huawei’s eSight for FusionDirector software. It is equipped with dynamic energy management tech (DEMT) and fault diagnostic management (FDM). Having less than 15% latency and 20% more bandwidth, the Huawei rack servers are capable of delivering the fastest write performance for SAP HANA scenarios.

To further boost the Huawei rack server performance, FusionServer Pro utilizes Intel Optane technology’s next-gen dual in-line memory module—the Intel Optane persistent memory (PMem)—to provide large storage capacity, cost-effective accelerated performance capabilities and allowing for non-volatile memory storage. The cutting-edge technology does this by:

  • supporting three-memory capacity specifications: 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB per DIMM, allowing for memory capacity of up to 4.5 TB
  • providing cost-effective measures by enabling expansion of service capabilities through the scale-up method to lower capital expenses (CAPEX) and operating expenses (OPEX)using App Direct (AD),
  • providing data persistence to enable access to the master data in the SAP HANA memory database without prolonged restart and drive reload
