Veritas Embarks on Journey to Transform Cloud Data Management

If you have lots of data, and what enterprise today doesn’t have a massive amount of data, you need to store the data, protect the data, enable access to the data, and more and more you are probably moving at least some of the data to the cloud.

Outside the box: Users find another way for hyper-convergence

IT pros have found a way to save money and use existing hardware with software-only hyper-convergence, the lesser-known alternative to appliance-based HCI choices.

Veritas: Dell EMC’s no marriage made in heaven

In the pre-Symantec days when Veritas was an independent storage software company, its executives frequently bashed their primary competitor EMC. That rhetoric cooled after Symantec bought Veritas, and the chief EMC bashers (including current Dell EMC CMO Jeremy Burton) left Symantec.

Data Protection Needs to be Everywhere – Including the Public Cloud

Moving workloads to the public cloud is now a priority for the majority of companies. In fact, over 60% of firms we recently surveyed are housing business-critical assets in Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure or other public clouds.

The Best All-Flash Array for SAP HANA

These days the world operates in real-time all the time. Whether making airline reservations or getting the best deal from an online retailer, data is expected to be up to date with the best information at your fingertips. Businesses are expected to meet this requirement, whether they sell products or services. Having this real-time, actionable information can dictate whether a business survives or dies. In-memory databases have become popular in these environments. The world's 24X7 real-time demands cannot wait for legacy ERP and CRM application rewrites. Companies such as SAP devised ways to integrate disparate databases by building a single super-fast uber-database that could operate with legacy infrastructure while simultaneously creating a new environment where real-time analytics and applications can flourish. These capabilities enable businesses to succeed in the modern age, giving forward-thinking companies a real edge in innovation.

SAP HANA is an example of an application environment that uses in-memory database technology and allows the processing of massive amounts of real-time data in a short time. The in-memory computing engine allows HANA to process data stored in RAM as opposed to reading it from a disk. At the heart of SAP HANA is a database that operates on both 

OLAP and OLTP database workloads simultaneously. SAP HANA can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud. Originally, on-premises HANA was available only as a dedicated appliance. Recently SAP has expanded support to best in class components through their SAP Tailored Datacenter Integration (TDI) program. In this solution profile, Taneja Group examined the storage requirements needed for HANA TDI environments and evaluated storage alternatives including the HPE 3PAR StoreServ All Flash. We will make a strong case as to why all-flash arrays like the HPE 3PAR version are a great fit for SAP HANA solutions.

Why discuss storage for an in-memory database? The reason is simple: RAM loses its mind when the power goes off. This volatility means that persistent shared storage is at the heart of the HANA architecture for scalability, disaster tolerance, and data protection. The performance attributes of your shared storage dictate how many nodes you can cluster into a SAP HANA environment which in turn affects your business outcomes. Greater scalability capability means more real-time information is processed. SAP HANA workload shared storage requirements are write intensive with low latency for small files and sequential throughput performance for large files. However, the overall storage capacity is not extreme which makes this workload an ideal fit for all-flash arrays that can meet performance requirements with the smallest quantity of SSDs. Typically you would need 10X the equivalent spinning media drives just to meet the performance requirements, which then leaves you with a massive amount of capacity that cannot be used for other purposes.

In this study, we examined five leading all-flash arrays including the HPE 3PAR StoreServ 8450 All Flash. We found that the unique architecture of the 3PAR array could meet HANA workload requirements with up to 73% fewer SSDs, 76% less power, and 60% less rack space than the alternative AFAs we evaluated.
