SAP HANA is a multipurpose, data-source-agnostic, in-memory database appliance software optimized on established Dell servers, networking and storage, and delivered by Dell Global Services. Dell’s SAP HANA solution dramatically increases the availability and speed of business information.

  • Easy scalability: Every configuration is based on the Dell PowerEdge R910 and R920 server platforms to provide a consistent experience and a solid base for future expansion, without forcing “rip and replace” as system needs evolve.
  • Virtualization for development: Dell's 4 socket servers are certified by SAP for SAP HANA Virtualized, offering SAP HANA instances deployed in VMware VMs, and allowing for a more economical application development environment.
