Leverage virtualisation to lower costs
Boost efficiency and agility – while reducing the cost of IT operations – by running SAP HANA in a virtualisation environment. Host multiple, isolated database instances on one or more servers – so that each database instance appears as if running on a separate machine. This helps lower costs, while maintaining high performance.
SAP has partnered with VMware and Hitachi to support virtualisation across production and non-production installations and deployments.
