InformationWeek - - News -

SAP an­nounced that with a team of tech­nol­ogy part­ners, in­clud­ing BMM­soft, HP, In­tel, NetApp and Red Hat, it has gen­er­ated a new world record for the world’s largest data ware­house us­ing the SAP HANA plat­form and SAP IQ soft­ware. This in­de­pen­dently au­dited 12.1PB data ware­house has been rec­og­nized by Guin­ness World Records, and is four times larger than the prior record.

“Set­ting a new world record with the com­bi­na­tion of SAP HANA and SAP IQ was a ‘moon­shot’ chal­lenge I had laid out for our en­gi­neer­ing team,” said Dr. Vishal Sikka, mem­ber of the Ex­ec­u­tive Board of SAP AG, Prod­ucts & In­no­va­tion. “Our goal was to set new lim­its in bring­ing Big Data to­gether with fast, ad hoc and scal­able an­a­lyt­ics. SAP has shown the abil­ity of our plat­form to achieve such an in­cred­i­ble re­sult, demon­strat­ing a cost- ef­fec­tive and high-per­for­mance ap­proach to­ward solv­ing ex­treme prob­lems in Big Data and an­a­lyt­ics.”

SAP and its part­ners had pre­vi­ously set a world record for load­ing and in­dex­ing Big Data at 34.3 ter­abytes per hour.

A team of en­gi­neers from SAP, BMM­soft, HP, In­tel, NetApp, and Red Hat, built the data ware­house us­ing SAP HANA and SAP IQ 16, with BMM­soft Fed­er­ated EDMT run­ning on HP DL580 servers us­ing In­tel Xeon E7-4870 pro­ces­sors un­der Red Hat En­ter­prise Linux 6 and NetApp FAS6290 and E5460 stor­age. The de­vel­op­ment and test­ing of the 12.1PB data ware­house was con­ducted by the team at the SAP/ In­tel Petas­cale lab in Santa Clara, Calif., and au­dited by In­foSiz­ing, an in­de­pen­dent Trans­ac­tion Pro­cess­ing Coun­cil cer­ti­fied au­di­tor.
