The Unity XT family has been certified for SAP HANA using the SAP HANA-HWC-ES-1.1 certification scenario. For information about this certification scenario, see the Certified and Supported SAP HANA Hardware Directory.

Both all-flash and hybrid Unity XT models can be used for SAP HANA. However, with hybrid models, the storage pool for the SAP HANA persistence (data and log) must reside on a single tier consisting of flash disks.

Customers can now choose between two connectivity protocols for the SAP HANA nodes—both FC and NAS (NFS) have been certified for SAP HANA. For information about the host and network requirements for these connectivity protocols, see Network design considerations.

For an SAP HANA TDI deployment on a Unity XT array, determining the right array model, the number and type of front-end I/O modules, and the disk configuration requires the following information:

  • Number of SAP HANA nodes to be deployed on the array
  • Capacity requirements of the SAP HANA nodes
  • Connectivity protocol to be used for the SAP HANA persistence: FC or NAS (NFS)

An SAP HANA node can be either a single (scale-up) SAP HANA server or an SAP HANA worker node which is part of an SAP HANA multihost cluster. Multiple SAP HANA nodes can be connected to a Unity XT storage array as long as the maximum number of SAP HANA nodes, as specified in Table 2, is not exceeded.

For information about the capacity requirements of an SAP HANA node, seeSAP HANA capacity requirements.

Unity XT scalability

Dell EMC performed extensive testing to determine the scalability of the Unity XT family as part of the SAP HANA certification, using the SAP HANA-HWC-ES-1.1 certification scenario. The following table shows the number of SAP HANA nodes that are supported on a specified Unity XT array model. These numbers represent the maximum number of SAP HANA production nodes that can be connected to the Unity XT while still meeting the SAP performance KPIs.

Achieving these numbers in a customer environment requires:

  • FC network with 16 Gb/s link speed on all components
  • Storage IP network with 25 Gb/s link speed on all components
  • Two 4-port I/O modules (16 Gb/s FC or 25 Gb/s IP) per storage processor
  • 16 dedicated FE ports for SAP HANA with SAP HANA nodes equally balanced across the FE ports
  • Capacity for the SAP HANA persistence allocated on a single tier (no FAST VP and no FAST cache) using SSDs only
  • Host connections configured as described in SAP HANA host configuration and setup
  • NAS servers configured as described in Create NAS servers
  • All SAP HANA persistent devices (LUNs and file systems) created on thick devices with no data services (thin, data reduction, advanced deduplication) enabled. For information about the impact of data services, see Unity XT data services.

Practice Question Answers and Explanations

Question 1

Correct answers: A, B, C

 

For new SAP software implementations (greenfield) on SAP HANA, SAP recommends using the Quick Sizer tool. For migrations of SAP NetWeaver-based applications, there are specific sizing reports (SAP Notes) depending on whether you’re interested in SAP BW on SAP HANA, SAP Business Suite on SAP HANA, SAP BW/4HANA, SAP S/4HANA, or other applications. Any system that is large or complex requires sizing from an SAP sizing expert.

 

Answers D and E: these are standard brownfield sizing scenarios addressed in the respective SAP Notes.

Question 2

Correct answer: A

 

The SAP-certified SAP HANA hardware directory is shown in the figure below. Answer B is incorrect because the PAM contains a link to the hardware directory but doesn’t provide information about certified and supported appliances. Answer C is incorrect because the SAP ONE Support Launchpad contains information about SAP software but not about SAP-certified hardware. Answer D is incorrect because you might find information about SAP-certified appliances listed on the websites of SAP hardware partners, but this isn’t a centrally listed directory.

 

SAP HANA Hardware Directory

Question 3

Correct answers: C, D

 

There are three different versions of the Quick Sizer tool. The version for SAP HANA only contains templates for SAP applications running on SAP HANA, including both the “powered by HANA” releases and the “/4HANA,” but not cloud-based editions or for generic (AnyDB) sizing for products such as SAP NetWeaver.

 

Answer A is incorrect because the Quick Sizer tool for SAP HANA can’t be used to size SAP S/4HANA Cloud. For this, use the SAP S/4HANA Cloud Quick Sizer. Answer B is incorrect because there is no sizing tool for SAP NetWeaver (product family) or SAP NetWeaver AS for ABAP (application server), but there are Quick Sizers for SAP NetWeaver-based applications such as SAP Business Suite both when powered by SAP HANA or when running on AnyDB.

Question 4

Correct answer: B

 

SAP HANA appliances are standardized offerings and can’t be mapped to business requirements in an iterative approach. However, even with appliances, sizing is needed to select the right appliance for the workload.

 

Answer A is incorrect because the hardware partner doesn’t perform sizing for the appliance as the business requirements aren’t known. Answer C is incorrect because the appliance is preconfigure but does need to be sized for the workload. Answer D is incorrect because you can use the Quick Sizer tool for both appliance and TDI configurations. The Quick Sizer tool is typically used in new implementations (greenfield), whereas for SAP application migration projects (brownfield), different SAP Notes with specific SQL scripts attached are used.

Question 5

Correct answers: B, D

 

Brownfield implementations refer to migration projects of existing SAP applications from AnyDB to SAP HANA. For standard scenarios, such as migrating SAP BW to SAP BW/4HANA, there are specific SAP Notes that detail the actions to perform. Additional information can be found in the sizing guides listed on the SAP Help Portal under “SAP In-Memory Computing Sizing Guidelines.”

 

For new installations, also known as greenfield projects, you use the Quick Sizer tool for SAP HANA.

 

Complex migration projects typically require expert sizing, but this isn’t a requirement per se for brownfield implementations.

 

The SAP HANA sizing decision tree shows the different sizing approaches for greenfield and migration sizings with guidance on which SAP Note to use.

Question 6

Correct answer: A

 

This formula is documented in the SAP HANA In-Memory Database Sizing Guideline (PDF) document attached to SAP Note 1514966 Sizing SAP In-Memory Database.

 

Answers B and C are incorrect because there is no sizing report for generic applications, and there is no Quick Sizer tool for AnyDB.

Question 7

Correct answer: A

 

Recommendation from SAP Note 1514966 (see the “Greenfield, Brownfield, and Expert Sizing” section).

 

Answer B is incorrect because, in practice, storage throughput in IOPS may provide a more important storage requirement than the actual disk space. However, the question asked about disk space requirements. Answer C is incorrect because the rule of thumb of three times RAM provides a rough calculation for the space requirements of an SAP HANA appliance as this also allows for backups and memory dumps (exports) on the same volume. For production systems, only database data files should be stored on the data volume.

 

Exam Tip: Formulas provide great material for exam questions. SAP Note 1514966 dates from 2013 when the TDI program was launched and may no longer be used all that much for actual sizing projects.

Question 8

Correct answer: C

 

Although all listed technologies impact memory sizing indirectly by reducing the amount of memory required to store the tables, only persistent memory (PMEM) does so directly as reflected in a dedicated note. As mentioned in SAP Note 2786237 – Sizing SAP HANA with Persistent Memory, expert sizing is strongly recommended when implementing PMEM.

 

SAP HANA smart data access (SDA) uses linked databases, virtual tables, and query federation to access remote data as if it’s stored locally, without data copy (only metadata is stored). SDA was introduced with SAP HANA 1.0 SPS 06.

 

SAP HANA dynamic tiering is an optional component that extends the in-memory database with a disk-based columnar store. In the temperature analogy, hot data is stored in memory while less frequently accessed warm data is placed in the extensive store. SAP HANA dynamic tiering is an add-on component, separately licensed, with its own documentation set and listing on the PAM. It uses SAP IQ technology for the extended store and supports native SAP HANA applications but not SAP BW or enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications (SAP S/4HANA). SAP HANA dynamic tiering was introduced with SAP HANA 1.0 SPS 10.

 

SAP HANA extension nodes enable you to allocate a node (host) of a multiplehost, scale-out (distributed) system as warm data memory store. Extension nodes were introduced with SAP HANA 1.0 specific to SAP BW but are currently also supporting native applications. Other warm and cold data aging solutions specific to SAP BW are nearline storage and the “nonactive data” concept.

 

Exam Tip: For this topic area, you’re not expected to be intimately familiar with all these data tiering solutions, but you should have a general understanding of what they are and how they are used.

Question 9

Correct answer: C

 

To perform a comprehensive hardware configuration check, you must run the hardware configuration check tool with the appropriate configuration template files.

 

Answer A is incorrect because the SAP HANA installer calls the Python script HanaHwCheck.py and exits in case of noncompliance. However, this script only verifies the software prerequisites required for the installation and doesn’t perform a comprehensive check of hardware, network, and storage configurations. Answer B is incorrect because running the hardware configuration check tool isn’t required, and you could opt to perform all the recommendations and requirement check manually, although this isn’t the recommended approach. Answer D is incorrect because SAP strongly recommends using the hardware configuration check as part of an SAP GoingLive Check for SAP HANA, but the tool is freely available for download for every SAP HANA customer and documented in SAP Notes. To use the hardware configuration check tool, the SAP GoingLive Check service isn’t required.

Question 10

Correct answers: B, C

 

SLES and RHEL for SAP solutions are the operating systems supported for the SAP HANA server.

 

Answer A is incorrect because, although you may find blogs on the SAP Community about how to install SAP HANA, express edition, on Ubuntu, this Linux distribution is only supported for the SAP HANA client. Answer D is incorrect because openSUSE is the open source project for SUSE Linux and Leap at regular release, but there is no “for SAP solutions” edition as this only exists for SLES.

Question 11

Correct answer: A

 

An internal network zone is used for system replication.

 

Answer B is incorrect because the storage network zone is only used to communicate between the system and storage subsystems (NAS or SAN) for persistence, log, and backups. Answer C is incorrect because local, global, and internal are valid configurations for the listen interface, but local isn’t a network zone.

Question 12

Correct answer: D

 

XFS is the recommended file system by SAP.

 

Answer A is incorrect because the Microsoft Windows NT File System (NTFS) isn’t supported for SAP HANA as SAP HANA is only supported on Linux. Answer B is incorrect because the EXT4 file system isn’t supported. Answer C is incorrect because IBM Spectrum Scale (GPFS) is a clustered file system supported for SAP HANA.

 

Conclusion

In this post, you were able to practice a dozen questions on SAP HANA installation that you should know for the SAP HANA 2.0 Technology Associate certification exam. Best of luck on your test!

SAP HANA Certification: How to Choose the Right Type for You?

What is SAP HANA Certification?

 HANA is a system designed for efficient management of relational databases. To provide high performance and efficiency, SAP HANA uses in-system memory and data columns. HANA is commonly used by many organizations and data professionals.

SAP offers many types of certifications, which help organizations and individuals specialize in certain areas of SAP in general, and SAP HANA in particular.

This is part of our series of guides to SAP on Azure.

In this article, you will learn:


Benefits of the SAP HANA Certification

Benefits for organizations:

Organizations can encourage their employees to attain SAP HANA certifications, helping them acquire new skills, develop existing knowledge, and constantly advance in their chosen field. This can help promote greater productivity, performance, and efficiency.

Additionally, when your in-house staff hones their expertise, the organization’s trustworthiness and credibility increases. A certification helps customers know the organization has put time and effort into the learning required to provide expert service.

Benefits for individuals:

Technology has a dynamic nature—it evolves and advances constantly. Updates and patches are now an integral part of the cycle, especially when using containerization and microservices architecture. This level of continuous change, while beneficial to all involved, requires continuous learning.

Certificate programs help data professionals gain current knowledge, continuously hone their skills, and remain in sync with the ever-changing landscape of technology. Additionally, each certification provides recognition and serves as a stamp of approval, proficiency, and even mastery.

SAP Program Overview

SAP offers over 150 certifications in various languages. Each SAP certificate helps professionals learn how to use SAP products. There is a wide scope of categories to explore, and many classes are now taught online.

SAP certifications are offered according to levels:

Certification

Besides the NetWeaver certification, SAP requires a special certification for SAP HANA to support SAP HANA on certain infrastructures, such as Azure IaaS and BareMetal Infrastructure.

The core SAP Note on NetWeaver, and to a degree SAP HANA certification, is SAP Note #1928533 – SAP applications on Azure: Supported products and Azure VM types.

The certification records for SAP HANA on Azure Large Instances can be found in the SAP HANA certified IaaS Platforms site.

The SAP HANA on Azure (Large Instances) types, referred to in SAP HANA certified IaaS Platforms site, provides Microsoft and SAP customers the ability to deploy:

  • Large SAP Business Suite
  • SAP BW
  • S/4 HANA
  • BW/4HANA
  • Other SAP HANA workloads in Azure.

The solution is based on the SAP-HANA certified dedicated hardware stamp (SAP HANA tailored data center integration – TDI). If you run an SAP HANA TDI-configured solution, all the above SAP HANA-based applications work on the hardware infrastructure.

Compared to running SAP HANA in VMs, this solution offers the benefit of much larger memory volumes.

Key concepts

To enable this solution, you need to understand the following key aspects:

  • The SAP application layer and non-SAP applications run in VMs that are hosted in the usual Azure hardware stamps.
  • Customer on-premises infrastructure, data centers, and application deployments are connected to the cloud platform through ExpressRoute (recommended) or a virtual private network (VPN). Active Directory and DNS also are extended into Azure.
  • The SAP HANA database instance for HANA workload runs on SAP HANA on Azure (Large Instances). The Large Instance stamp is connected into Azure networking, so software running in VMs can interact with the HANA instance running in HANA Large Instance.
  • Hardware of SAP HANA on Azure (Large Instances) is dedicated hardware provided in an IaaS with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server or Red Hat Enterprise Linux preinstalled. As with virtual machines, further updates and maintenance to the operating system is your responsibility.
  • Installation of HANA or any other components necessary to run SAP HANA on units of HANA Large Instance is your responsibility. All respective ongoing operations and administration of SAP HANA on Azure are also your responsibility.
  • You can also install other components in your Azure subscription that connect to SAP HANA on Azure (Large Instances). For example, components that enable communication with the SAP HANA database, such as:
    • Jump servers
    • RDP servers
    • SAP HANA Studio
    • SAP Data Services for SAP BI scenarios
    • Network monitoring solutions.
  • As in Azure, HANA Large Instance offers support for high availability and disaster recovery functionality.
