It is important for the success of your SAP HANA implementation to engage the HP sales team to plan the extract, transform, and loading of data into SAP HANA, as well as integration with your applications. Management and In-Memory Compute servers The HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA Scale-up Configurations are managed by the HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 Server. The in-memory computing components are contained within the HP BladeSystem Superdome Enclosure. These have 2 Intel Xeon E v2 (2.8GHz/15-core/37.5MB/155W) processors per blade, with 4 blades / 120 cores or 8 blades / 240 cores available. The HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 Server (for management) and the HP BladeSystem Superdome Enclosure (for in-memory computing) are enterprise-grade x86 offerings with breakthrough performance, network and storage redundancy for rock-solid reliability, and compelling consolidation and manageability efficiencies. This technology is ideal for mission-critical enterprise, business intelligence, and database applications. 2

3 The SAP HANA platform, running on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, provides the basis to dramatically increase the performance of your applications. Enterprises are quickly adopting SAP HANA as they value the ability to aggregate and analyze data in real-time. HANA compression, in-memory caching, and connections to big data technologies provide key elements in the formula for faster response times. High Performance and Availability Storage An in-memory database requires high performance data and log storage to preserve the integrity and availability of information across shutdown and fail-over scenarios. The HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA Scale-up Configurations rely on HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 storage and HP networking switches to best meet this requirement. Each compute node is connected through redundant storage area network (SAN) paths to the highly available HP 3PAR StoreServ storage unit with redundant controllers. The 8-socket HP ConvergedSystem 900 contains an HP 3PAR StoreServ node controller with ninety-six 900GB SAS disks, while the 16-socket configuration contains 2 HP 3PAR StoreServ node controller servers with one-hundredninety-two 900GB SAS disks each with redundancy choices for maximum availability and performance. Target audience This paper is intended for technical solution architects, IT managers, decision makers and HANA system administrators who want to learn more about HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA Scale-up Configurations with HP 3PAR StoreServ storage. Solution overview HP and SAP have joined forces to deliver SAP HANA in-memory database in a resilient highly available configuration. This compelling database technology brings a new and exciting foundation for business innovation. In-memory platforms represent a technological shift in the way companies deal with data because it enables the processing of massive quantities of real-time data in server main memory to provide significantly faster query results. The ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA Scale-up Configurations may be positioned as an operational data platform, or as a sidecar 1 configuration for analytics. With ConvergedSystem 900 portfolio for SAP HANA, you have some great choices. This paper describes the scale-up configuration that uses HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 storage technology that provides high availability features, for example, mesh-active architecture, intelligent data striping, and Persistent Cache in four node configurations eliminates performance impacts that result from unplanned component failures. 1 A sidecar scenario is where HANA is a secondary database that is periodically loaded with the tables necessary for off-line queries. These queries take advantage of all the benefits and speed enhancements of HANA, yet the existing business infrastructure stays intact and operational. 3

4 Solution components In this review of the components, the rear of the devices are also shown; this will show most of the available connections. Figure 1: HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA Scale-up 6TB Configuration Figure 2: HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA Scale-up 12TB Configuration 4

5 Storage The SAP HANA data and log partitions for each instance are directly serviced by the HP 3PAR nodes through the redundant SAN ports and use the SAP storage API to manage the mounting of these volumes. The HANA shared directory is managed by the NFS servers; that directory is also mounted from a volume on the HP 3PAR storage. Storage nodes and ports Each HP BladeSystem Superdome Enclosure is paired with one or two HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 units that have four controllers for maximum performance and redundancy. Each 7400 hosts ninety-six 900GB serial attached SCSI (SAS) 10K RPM disks. The high performance of the 7400 is required to support and sustain the high throughput and provide the assurance of data integrity required of today s enterprise class databases. Figure 3 shows a front view of the 7400 with the disk cartridges, and a rear view with the SAN and LAN ports, controller interconnects, and management ports. Figure 3: HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 front and rear views (4 nodes shown) From the rear view of the HP 3PAR 7400 storage, we can see four controllers. These controllers operate in pairs, but share all the metadata and pathways to the disks to provide high availability and redundant paths. Virtual Service Processor Each 7400 is matched with a virtual service processor (VSP) running on the management server using Microsoft Hyper-V Server The VSP is composed of a Linux operating system and the VSP software, and it exists as a single undivided entity. This service processor is important for setup, monitoring health, preserving performance statistics, and providing high levels of service using predictive support analysis and a call home support link. The service processors are not part of the data operational chain, therefore redundancy is not required. The HP 3PAR Service Processor is an integral component in the HP 3PAR Secure Service Architecture. The HP 3PAR Service Processor provides secure service communication between the HP 3PAR storage system and the central management console, enabling secure diagnostic data transmission and remote service connections. Diagnostic data can be transferred frequently and maintained centrally on a historical basis. As a result, manual intervention in the support process is minimized and proactive fault detection and analysis is enhanced. Furthermore, with remote service connectivity for troubleshooting, HP support can deliver faster, with more reliable response and quicker resolution time. 5

This LAN switch has 48 fixed 1/10GbE SFP+ ports for device traffic and 4 QSFP+ 40GbE ports. 2 Figure 5 shows a rear view. Figure 5: LAN switch rear view HP 5900 Switch Series enables scaling of the server edge with 1GbE and 10GbE ToR deployments to new heights with highdensity 48-port solutions delivered in a 1U design; the high server port density is backed by 40GbE QSFP+ uplinks to deliver the availability of needed bandwidth for demanding applications. The ports on these switches are assigned to virtual LANs as appropriate for the traffic. The LAN switches management and serial ports are on the front of the LAN switch as show in Figure 6. Figure 6: LAN switch front view Central Management Server An HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 server hosts the Central Management Server (CMS) and acts primarily as an access point to the configuration; support access to the other components of the configuration is available through this single entry point. This simplifies the network and connectivity to different devices within the configuration. Figure 7 shows the rear view of the CMS server. The CMS hosts the management console for 3PAR StoreServ 7400, and other appliance management and support tools. These are deployed as Virtual Machines using Microsoft Hyper-V. The Virtual Service Processor (VSP) is designed to provide remote error detection and reporting and to support diagnostic and maintenance activities involving the storage systems. The VSP is composed of a Linux operating system and the VSP software, and it exists as a single undivided entity. Figure 7: HP DL380p rear view as configured for CMS HP support, if requested, may access the ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA Scale-up Configurations through the CMS via the management network during a virtual classroom with appropriate customer administration personnel. 2 HP 5900AF-48XG-4QSFP+ Switch 7
