Delivered with 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, Intel OptaneTM  PMem provides distinct benefits that only SAP HANA is optimized for.


High Performance
and Lower Cost
  • Do more within the same server with larger instance sizes and more data managed in-memory without performance degradation. Instant startups enable faster return to operation after maintenance.
  • Save money on the licensing, hardware, and administration costs.
Speed With
  • Maintain fewer SAP HANA instances, enabling greater consolidation in your move to SAP S/4HANA.
  • Power your new and existing applications transparently with confidence, because innovation at SAP’s digital core (SAP HANA) means benefits extend to all SAP applications.

Industry Experts Speak Performance

Intel’s DC Persistent memory is revolutionary that will power the next innovation in business intelligence.... However, what does that mean for performance and business capability? I think SAP HANA is the best example of what’s possible.”


Keith Townsend, Co-Founder, The CTO Advisor

The 2nd Gen Xeons also support Optane Persistent Memory, which for applications like HANA, can radically improve TCO,” Moorhead confirmed. “Intel’s tuning capabilities will be strongly accepted by cloud service providers.”

Mike Wheatley, Senior Staff Writer, Silicon Angle 

Lenovo, for instance, announced a refresh of 15 ThinkSystem servers and 5 ThinkAgile appliances powered by 2nd-Gen Xeon Scalable processors. The upgrade has resulted in a double-digit increases in performance. Lenovo is the first vendor to leverage Optane memory on a SAP HANA workload with up to 12.5x faster recovery.”

Stephanie Condon, Staff Writer for CBS Interactive, Covering Business Technology for ZDNet

Dirk Basenach, SAP’s database chief, said the rollout of persistent memory technology on the company’s flagship HANA database has so far yielded reductions in data loading times from 50 to 4 minutes on a 6-terabyte S/4 HANA system. The database vendor also said the memory technology has helped it achieve 9.1 billion records on a single HANA database.”

In real-world terms, this means that memory-dependent large-scale datacenter applications, like AI, in-memory databases, content delivery networks (CDNs), large SAP Hana installations, and more, can see significant performance gains.”

Bob O'Donnell, Editor, TechSpot

Bart Sano, Google Cloud’s vice president of platforms, said the cloud provider is applying Optane to big data workloads such as in-memory database applications—as are other early users such as software giant SAP’s flagship HANA database management platform.”
