For many of the world’s most successful enterprises, the ability to conduct real-time analytics with SAP HANA has become a primary operational requirement for both line-of-business and corporate information technology leadership. This long-coming priority shift in big data workloads—from multi-day processing runs of siloed petabytes of data, to real-time views of live data, managed en masse and in-memory—is the new norm.
Reliability, Availability and Serviceability
The bottom-line impact of outages affecting core ERP systems such as SAP Business Suite has been extensively documented. Real-time analytics systems are also proving to be sensitive to downtime. Even brief interruptions of service may impair decision-making processes throughout an organization. A failure at any tier can bring down the entire business service, and managing the recovery is time consuming and complex.
Lenovo has incorporated several levels of reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) functionality across their server line to ensure business continuity. Of these, the following represent significant technology infrastructure subsystems that work to deliver HA, DR and RAS benefits
