SAP applications are now certified for use with the Oracle SPARC SuperCluster T4-4. SAP infrastructure and applications based on the SAP NetWeaver technology platform 6.4 and above and certified with Oracle Database 11g Release 2, such as the SAP ERP application and SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse, can now be deployed using the SPARC SuperCluster T4-4.
"The Oracle SPARC SuperCluster is an ideal platform for consolidating SAP applications and infrastructure," says Ganesh Ramamurthy, vice president of engineering, Oracle. "Because the SPARC SuperCluster is a pre-integrated engineered system, it enables data center managers to dramatically reduce their time-to-production for SAP applications to a fraction of what a build-it-yourself approach requires and radically cuts operating and maintenance costs."
According to Oracle, the SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 provides an optimized platform for SAP environments that can reduce configuration times by up to 75%, reduce operating costs up to 50%, improve query performance by up to 10x, and improve daily data loading up to 4x.
