Reduce Costs and Gain IT Efficiencies for Key Workloads Such as SAP HANA with Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory

Meet customer expectations for high-performance SAP HANA infrastructure that accelerates innovation and time to insight, while simultaneously lowering AWS’ costs.

To meet these challenges, many enterprises plan to deploy SAP S/4 HANA. And the good news for AWS is that SAP expects a significant acceleration of cloud growth over the coming years.1

AWS has the opportunity to deliver SAP HANA solutions that meet enterprise customer demands for high-performance data processing and accelerated time to insight, for the lowest possible total cost of ownership (TCO).

One option is to integrate Intel® Optane™ persistent memory (PMem), an innovative memory technology that delivers a unique combination of affordable large capacity and support for data persistence. By integrating it into AWS’ infrastructure you can help customers innovate faster, reduce TCO, and increase IT efficiency.
