Hitachi Data Systems Unveils New Converged Infrastructure Platforms for SAP HANA Environments

Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), an SAP partner, has announced a series of new Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) solutions for SAP HANA environments based on the latest Intel XEON E5 and E7 processors. New Additions to the Hitachi UCP family would reduce costs and allow users to break down data silos through dynamic tiering and big data analytics.

HDS’ new solutions for SAP HANA environments include 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.

These new systems and enhancements would provide optimized converged infrastructure platforms that allow customers to run multiple applications on a single platform. This would reduce cost, complexity and data center footprint. HDS is showcasing its new solutions at SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG Annual Conference being held May 17-19 in Orlando, Florida, in Booth 119.
