IBM has released its latest offering on high-performance Power10 servers for SAP HANA, which is based on its range of single and dual-socket servers with between 2TB and 6TB of RAM at discounts of nearly 50%.
SAP HANA works thanks to a design where the real-time processing and analysis of large volumes of data is performed entirely in memory, guaranteeing a much improved performance compared to classic SAP environments. HANA helps companies around the world manage critical data and make business decisions based on accurate, real-time information.
What does IBM Power10 bring to the table?
IBM Power10 is the first server to offer native support for SAP HANA, making it an attractive option for companies looking to deploy this platform. With its ability to handle large volumes of data and perform real-time analysis, the Power10 can significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of business operations.
The Power10 server uses the latest IBM processor technology, enabling up to 15 times faster processing capacity than the previous generation of Power9 servers. In addition, the Power10 uses a modular design approach, allowing companies to customize the system to their specific workload needs.
Memory capacity is also impressive in the Power10, with a maximum capacity of up to 64 terabytes of memory in a single server. This in-memory capacity is important for SAP HANA, as the platform relies heavily on the ability to process and analyze large volumes of data in real time. The Power10 can easily handle the memory requirements of SAP HANA, ensuring optimal performance and lower latency.
The Power10 also offers increased I/O performance, enabling businesses to move large volumes of data more efficiently and quickly with up to 800GB per second in-memory data transfers. This is especially important for companies that use SAP HANA to process and analyze large volumes of information in real time. Power10 can handle these workloads with ease, enabling companies and organizations to make business decisions based on up-to-date and accurate information.
Another important feature of the Power10 is its ability to run mixed workloads. This means that the server can handle a combination of database and application workloads, making it ideal for organizations that need to run multiple business applications on a single platform. In addition, the Power10 uses a powerful virtualization technology (PowerVM) ported more than 20 years ago from Z (Host/Mainframe) systems and adapted to UNIX and Linux, allowing multiple operating systems such as AIX, Red Hat, SUSE and IBM i to run on the same platform.
Security by design and a hypervisor with no known vulnerabilities
The Power10 server also offers a high level of security, with data encryption technology and advanced authentication. This is important for companies that handle critical and confidential data. The Power10 can protect enterprise data and ensure that only authorized users have access to it. In addition, its hypervisor, PowerVM has no known vulnerabilities.
