Atos Achieves SAP HANA Certification for Bullion Server
Dec. 7 -- Atos, through its technology brand Bull, announces that bullion, its high-end enterprise x86 server, is now certified for operating the SAP HANA platform up to 16TB. The modular and ultra-flexible architecture helps simplify operations and improve business productivity and IT efficiency. Clients can easily upscale and personalize their in-memory needs over time with this scalable server that can handle up to 16 TeraBytes (TB) of memory. Today Atos is one of only two players worldwide delivering a certified platform over 8TB.
Key advantages the 16TB bullion for SAP HANA offers clients worldwide:
- Same server technology from small to very large SAP HANA environments - With this new certification achieved on a 16 CPUs appliance model equipped with Intel Xeon Processor E7-v4 Family, bullion servers for SAP HANA are among the most scalable platforms worldwide. The whole range supports organizations by optimizing landscapes running SAP HANA - from 512GB up to 16TB database - on the same technology and without any rupture.
- In-memory capacity of up to 16 TB to help meet companies' business needs worldwide - Large companies will be able to migrate their largest mission-critical databases to SAP HANA, and hence leverage the speed and flexibility of the SAP HANA platform.
One of the biggest SAP HANA migration project in the world
Atos' six-year contract with Siemens, Europe's largest engineering company, focuses on a platform running in the cloud and is built on the SAP HANA platform for data services to meet Siemens' growing business demands. The platform - based on bullion, the enterprise high-end x86 server from Bull - is deployed on a worldwide basis to support more than 100,000 Siemens personnel across the whole Siemens Group. This is one of the biggest SAP HANA migration projects in the world, hosting critical data in more than 1PB of aggregated memory.
This range of bullion appliances for SAP HANA reinforces Atos' capabilities in successful end-to-end delivery of SAP solutions. As a SAP partner, Atos combines unique expertise and technologies to unleash the value of SAP HANA.
