Persistent memory support for SAP BW on HANA

0 Kudos


I was going through various blogs about Intel's optane DC processor and persistent memory support. It appears quite interesting as this option can save a huge amount of memory cost involved for running an in memory based server. But all of them were referring only to HANA space.

I am interested to know whether the persistent memory will also be supported in the SAP BW running on HANA scenario, what are the future plans for the same, what is the approximate cost difference for a Single node running completely with DRAM in comparison with the same single node running in combination of DRAM and PMEM considering a 6 TB system?

Thanks and Regards,

PMEM is supported for SAP BW and Sizing information is available in SAP Note 2296290 & FAQ in SAP Note 2700084.

Persistent Memory is supported in both Scale out and Scale Up scenarios or even a native HANA Datawarehouse.
