HPE GreenLake for SAP HANA

Real-time data, coupled with immediate analytics, is fueling the digital transformation of today’s enterprises. Organizations that have invested in the SAP® platform recognize the in‑memory computing advantages of SAP HANA®. But traditional IT environments were not built to handle the explosive data growth in‑memory computing fosters. Success requires an organization to not only migrate to the new platform, but also to restructure its infrastructure and operations to handle exponential growth with the flexibility of pay per use.

To get the most out of your SAP HANA platform, the infrastructure that supports it must address rigorous availability, security, and reliability standards, which often span on-premises, hybrid architectures, and even multiple clouds. It’s no surprise then that HPE is a market leader, with more than 1000s of customers running SAP HANA on HPE, and 34,000+ SAP HANA servers shipped.


Until recently, businesses have focused on building SAP HANA platforms on-site for performance and security purposes, or explored cloud options for greater agility and cost efficiency. While both approaches offer distinct benefits, they also come with trade-offs. The good news is that you no longer have to compromise. HPE raises the bar by providing an on-premises pay-per-use solution for SAP HANA. HPE GreenLake delivers all the convenience of consumption-based IT for your SAP HANA workloads, with the control, security, and performance of an on-premises solution you can evolve for future needs.


Both enterprises and service providers win with a solution that lets you focus valuable resources on getting the most out of SAP HANA, while freeing you from the worries of SAP HANA implementation, provisioning, and maintenance of the underlying infrastructure.
