New SuperCluster M7 for SAP Whitepaper Available

This new whitepaper describes the Oracle SuperCluster M7 technology in detail and how it helps boost SAP performance.

SAP landscapes are complex, with many layers of infrastructure benefiting from consolidation to reduce total cost of ownership and improve SAP application performance, manageability and availability. Traditional SAP landscapes evolve to complex, segregated infrastructures for production, development, and quality assurance.

Oracle SuperCluster provides a simplified, consolidated cloud infrastructure for SAP landscapes as an architectural foundation. Oracle SuperCluster combines compute for SAP applications, middleware and Oracle database in a single systems, with networking and storage hardware, virtualization, operating system and management software in a complete, high performance infrastructure that is extremely secure, easy to deploy, manage and maintain.  For many customers, particularly those already running their SAP deployments on UNIX systems from IBM and HP, SuperCluster can be the  platform of choice.

This whitepaper is available for Exadata Community members in the community workspace.

Oracle Database In-Memory vs SAP HANA benchmark results

On September 16th, Oracle publicly released the benchmark white paper describing the results of SAP BW-EML Benchmark using Oracle In-Memory option. The results demonstrated that Oracle Database 12c runs SAP applications 2x faster than SAP HANA.

For your SAP clients running on Oracle Database make sure you consider the following points:

  • Why Risk Disrupting Your Client Business with SAP HANA

No application changes required. Oracle Database In-Memory is 100 percent compatible with all existing applications to transparently accelerate analytics for mixed workloads for both OLTP and data warehouse databases. No complexity, no compromises, no risks. Modern in-memory technology simply and seamlessly works with your business—not the other way around.

  • Instant Analytics: 2x Faster Than SAP HANA

Oracle Database In-Memory implements a dual-format architecture and state-of-the-art algorithms to accelerate analytics by orders of magnitude. This allows users to get immediate answers to business questions that previously took hours. This same Oracle in-memory technology is proven to speed up SAP applications 2x faster than SAP HANA. Read the benchmark white paper.

  • More Cost-Effective Than SAP HANA

Oracle Database In-Memory does not mandate that all data fit in-memory. Database queries execute transparently on data residing on all three tiers—memory, flash, and disk—enabling Oracle Database In-Memory to be used with databases of any size in order to take advantage of the combination of fast in-memory and low-cost storage technologies.

View the Database In-Memory Infographic.

  • The Gold Standard Database for Your Enterprise

Building on decades of innovation, Oracle Database offers a proven platform with integrated high availability and data protection to ensure a reliable, secured “always-on” business operation you can count on. Does SAP HANA offer the same high availability capabilities? Read more.

Read the Press release: "Oracle Database 12c and Oracle Database In-Memory Certified and Supported by SAP for Use with SAP Solutions."

Read the IDC white paper: "Memory-Optimized Transactions and Analytics in One Platform: Achieving Business Agility with Oracle Database." (PDF)

  • Breakthrough Transaction Processing Performance

Oracle has been a proven leader in publishing benchmarks on transaction processing performance as measured by SAP's own standard application benchmarks (SAP Standard Application Benchmarks).
