Petascale Cloud Lab Scales Real-Time Enterprise Analytics
With the Intel and SAP Petascale Cloud Lab, real-time analytics at massive scale has become a reality—and it’s just the beginning
What if decision makers throughout your business could access and analyze enterprise data a hundred times faster, a thousand times faster, or even ten thousand times faster? They would be able to make faster, smarter decisions to improve productivity and profitability. They would also be able to condense hour-long analytical queries into just seconds to gain deeper and timelier insight into critical business issues and to support real-time strategies and tactics that have not been possible until now.
SAP HANA* running on Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family-based servers is helping businesses achieve this goal today. According to Dr. Vishal Sikka, member of the Executive Board of SAP AG and head of technology and innovation, SAP HANA is delivering massive performance improvements for hundreds of customers: “We continue to see unmatched transactional and analytical performance—an average of 7,976 times performance improvement over previous systems across all project implementations.”
The unprecedented analytics performance provided by SAP HANA running on the Intel Xeon processor E7 family offers transformative business capability today, and there’s much more to come from the Intel and SAP collaboration. The two companies recently deployed the initial 100 TB RAM cluster of the Petascale Cloud Lab, which they are using to further optimize their combined platform, to support customer proof-of-concept testing, and to explore ways to simplify and accelerate future implementations. Ultimately, the impact of this collaboration is likely to provide even more far-reaching benefits.
