HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA doubles speed over SPARC hardware, powered by SUSE

As I manage the SAP and Intel global alliances at SUSE, this morning, I was double amazed by HP new record benchmark performance for SAP HANA on Intel architecture. My colleagues Jeff Mahoney, Kernel Engineering Team Lead, SUSE Labs and Matthias G. Eckermann, Senior Product Manager SUSE Linux Enterprise wrote on their blog:

“Our excitement this week is about the record-breaking results the HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA achieved running the SPECjbb2013 benchmark. The Converged System results are about 210% better than the previous record holder. The ConvergedSystem 900 ran SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3 — and the blazing fast results were no accident. At HP’s request, SUSE tweaked the Linux kernel to meet their needs. HP’s research was initially focused on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12, due this autumn, for its new CS900 for SAP HANA system, but it became clear that our customers could benefit from those improvements sooner.”

And the most important information is what I read further on their blog:

This new kernel isn’t just a one-off intended to showcase great benchmark numbers. It’s been incorporated as a fully supported component of SLE11 SP3, will be available for all  customers, and will receive maintenance updates concurrently with the kernels we already ship.
