Germany-based open source provider SUSE has announced it will support the use of Intel Optane DC persistent memory by users of SAP HANA.

In a statement, the company said this meant workloads could be optimised and large amounts of data could be maintained closer to the processor, minimising the latency in fetching data from system storage during maintenance.

The company claimed that customers who use SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP applications and running SAP HANA workloads on Intel Optane DC persistent memory could expect infrastructure cost savings and also a drop in management overhead.

Support for the Intel memory is included in SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 Service Pack 4 which is now available globally.

“Persistent memory technology will spark new applications for data access and storage,” said SUSE chief technology officer Thomas Di Giacomo.

“By offering a fully supported solution built on Intel Optane DC persistent memory, businesses can take greater advantage of the performance of SAP HANA. SUSE continues to partner with companies like SAP and Intel to serve customers worldwide who are looking to fuel growth by transforming their IT infrastructure. It is their needs that drive the direction of our innovation.”

Alper Ilkbahar, vice-president and general manager of the Non-volatile Memory and Storage Solutions Group at Intel, said: “Intel Optane DC persistent memory represents a new class of memory and storage technology architected specifically for data centre usage.

"This new memory class is designed to enable cost-effective, large-capacity in-memory database solutions, help provide greater system uptime and faster recovery after power cycles, and deliver higher-performance cloud-scale applications.

"By working together with SUSE and SAP to bring this transformative technology to our customers, we can help enable them to take advantage of a whole new generation of applications and services that can deliver revolutionary capabilities for the data-centric era.”

Martin Heisig of the SAP HANA Technology Innovation Network said: “The ability to deliver persistent memory for SAP HANA is a significant milestone in our ongoing relationship with SUSE and Intel. The SAP Digital Core is built on the concept of simplifying the infrastructure for increased productivity and real-time insights.”
