Learn more about how Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory can dramatically improve SAP HANA* 2.0 SPS 03 database start times. Unexpected downtimes can happen, whether caused by the wrong server getting unplugged during a maintenance window or a UPS not switching over fast enough during a power outage. Such unforeseen events can be even more challenging for in-memory database management systems, ...such as the SAP HANA* platform, due to the volatile nature of the server's main memory. Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory, which combines features of both DRAM and traditional persistent storage, changes the game for SAP HANA* database start times. By providing nearly the same performance as DRAM and the persistence of traditional flash- or hard-disk-based storage, Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory can minimize SAP HANA* downtime and lower operational costs.
