Intel and SAP have worked closely together for years. But, our co-engineering has reached a new level of integration with the recent launch of our Big Data solution based on the SAP HANA® platform and Intel® Distribution for Apache™ Hadoop® software. The joint solution will be demo’d at SAP Sapphire 2013, SAP’s flagship conference in Orlando, held May 14 – 16.
Stop by the Intel booth #3215 and experience our Big Data solution.
The Intel Distribution of Apache Hadoop running on SAP HANA represents more than a typical collaboration. It’s a great example of how co-engineering can result in a “more-than-the-sum-of-its parts” success that changes the game by vastly improving the speed and resilience of Big Data analytics.
HANA is SAP’s blindingly fast database platform that consolidates transactional and analytical workloads into a single, in-memory process. Combining OLAP and OLTP structures into a unified landscape eliminates traditional relational limitations that have restricted the development of real-time business applications, and in particular Big Data analytics.
Apache Hadoop is the industry’s open source standard for managing Big Data, but to ensure that Hadoop’s data-intensive workflows can provide real-time analytics on an enterprise scale requires a comprehensive computing platform with muscle and intelligence.
The Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop is specifically optimized for the advanced features of SAP HANA and the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family. Intel’s version of Hadoop can leverage SAP HANA in-memory technologies to accelerate data analytics and also tap into extra performance and scalability that the Intel processor E7 family is optimized for. In turn, SAP HANA’s in-memory processes help eliminate the latencies found in Hadoop’s underlying file system to enable on-demand data analysis.
Through joint-engineering, SAP and Intel have delivered a breakthrough Big Data solution that can store and analyze massive volumes of structured and unstructured data in real time. The underlying platform has the performance to scale to continued exponential data growth and deliver rapid-fire insights to help boost business productivity and profits.
