Violin Flash Memory Arrays Now Certified with SAP Sybase ASE

Memory-based storage system provider Violin Memory Inc. and SAP AG have announced that Violin 6000 Series Flash Memory Arrays are now certified for interoperability with SAP Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (SAP Sybase ASE), providing reliability and increased performance across a range of enterprise applications. Together, these solutions will provide enhanced and simplified solutions that leverage the power of Violin Flash Memory Arrays and business-critical SAP applications to accelerate transaction-driven environments.

Violin Memory is now an SAP software solution and technology partner in the SAP PartnerEdge program, working with SAP to serve new and existing customers, partners and channels to benefit form solutions from Violin Memory and SAP. Violin products are also available in support of SAP ERP applications.

Violin Flash Memory for SAP Sybase ASE accelerates IO-bound online transaction processing (OLTP) applications, database setup operations, checkpoints, logs and ETL (Extract Transform and Load) activities. “We help companies to solve two of their major worries they have: How can I get to a higher performing application environment and how do I consolidate my data center to get to a more efficient infrastructure?” Andy Mattes, senior IT and communications consultant at Violin Memory, tells 5 Minute Briefing.

The purpose-built memory arrays from Violin Memory provide the benefits of traditional storage in terms of persistence, reliability, network sharing, scale and economics. “SAP has certified our product and their software in an end-to-end test environment and are willing to testify that this brings dramatic improvements in performance,” Mattes explains. Low sustained latencies and high IOPS performance in a 3U form factor deliver 1 million IOPS for mixed workloads.
