SAP HANA Hardware Directory
Certified SAP HANA hardware can be found at the SAP HANA hardware directory.
The SAP HANA hardware directory lists all hardware that has been certified or are supported under the following scenarios:
Hardware that has been certified within the SAP HANA hardware certification program
Previously validated hardware based on Westmere technology, as reflected earlier in the Product Availability Matrix (PAM)
Supported Intel® Systems: Only single-node systems with minimum eight cores per supported Intel architecture and valid for particular SAP HANA SPS releases
The certification is valid for the period stipulated in the Integration Certification Agreement. The exact validity date of the certification is indicated in the certification letter that is issued upon successful completion of testing.
The certification confirms the existence of product features in accordance with SAP certification procedures. SAP only certifies successful integration of the product with SAP solutions. The vendor is responsible for the product itself and its error-free operation.
The hardware is required to have a valid SAP HANA hardware certification at the point of purchase by the customer. Once the validity date of the certification has passed, the hardware continues to be supported by the partner until the end of maintenance, as indicated by the partner.
SAP HANA Setup Scenarios
Consistent documentation for the group of appliances is applicable for all SAP HANA setup scenarios, including single node, scale-up, and scale-out, as follows:
BWoH/BW4H/DM/SoH/S4H includes hardware approved for all single-server configuration scenarios for SAP BW, powered by SAP HANA, SAP S/4HANA.
SoH/S4H includes additional single-server configurations specific for SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA, not covered by scale-up: BWoH/BW4H/DM/SoH/S4H.
BWoH/BW4H/DM includes multi-server configuration scenario for SAP BW powered by SAP HANA.
S4H includes multi-server configuration scenario for SAP S/4HANA (see SAP Note 2408419 – SAP S/4HANA – Multi-Node Support).
BWoH = BW on HANA
BW4H = BW for HANA
DM = Data Mart
SoH = Suite on HANA
S4H = SAP S/4HANA
SAP Business One includes single-server configurations specific for SAP Business One.
Additional CPUs for SAP Business One include the following: Haswell EP architecture: Intel E5-2670 v3, Broadwell EP architecture: Intel E5-2650 v4 or E5-26## v4 with higher specification; system size less than or equal to 256 GB is supported with E5-2630 v4.
The supported entry-level systems are valid for specific service packs. The hardware was tested by the hardware partner with SAP LinuxLab. The systems are supported for SAP HANA.
Hardware Supported by SAP HANA
A list of all certified and supported hardware can be found in the SAP HANA hardware directory. The link can be found in the SAP Note 2622671 – SAP HANA Certified and Supported Hardware. Use that list to determine the required hardware.
The SAP HANA hardware and cloud measurement tool allow you to check the interoperability of SAP HANA with your existing enterprise storage, network, and server in production environments.
The SAP HANA hardware and cloud measurement tool provide tests and reports for new single host and scale-out systems to determine if the hardware you intend to use meets the minimum performance criteria required to run SAP HANA in production use. The tools consist of the SAP HANA hardware and cloud measurement tool, which can be downloaded from the SAP Support Portal, and the SAP HANA hardware and cloud measurement analysis, which is available online. For more information about installing and using the tools, see SAP Note 2493172 – SAP HANA hardware and cloud measurement tool.
