The HP-Sybase BI solution with scalable performance, lower TCO, and simplicity in an open environment
The right choice for analytics and performance
The HP-Sybase BI Solution, referred to as a reference architecture for BI/DW infrastructure, provides the recommended hardware and software foundation for organizations looking to implement a BI infrastructure that is capable of running the customer’s home-grown applications or other industry applications.
Based on the Sybase IQ 15 analytics engine that enables dramatically faster, more accurate, and cost-effective business analytics and reporting and powered by industry leading HP ProLiant DL980 G7 servers running Red Hat Enterprise Linux with HP StorageWorks hardware and software, the HP-Sybase BI Solution trades complexity and expense for simplicity and ease of deployment without sacrificing performance, reliability, manageability, or scalability.
HP ProLiant systems—the world’s number one industry standard servers and blades running Linux —are built to handle the largest x86 environments with confidence and deliver features not previously available in an x86 platform.
Blending mission-critical and industry-standard design principles, the HP ProLiant DL980 G7 server with HP PREMA Architecture, is an eight-socket, x86 server based on the latest eight-core Intel® Xeon® Processor 7500/6500 Series, designed with balanced scalability, self-healing resiliency, and breakthrough efficiencies for the largest and most demanding Linux workloads.
Red Hat is the leader in enterprise Linux and is the most recognized open source brand in the world. HP and Red Hat Linux is the platform that sets the standard by demonstrating outstanding performance in scale-up x86 servers for the most demanding, data-intensive workload environments.
Utilizing the HP Server TCO Calculator™—developed independently by leading ROI/TCO tool developer Alinean, Inc., HP and Sybase—performed a cumulative three-year TCO comparison for Oracle Exadata V2, half-rack and full-rack environments versus the costs of the HP–Sybase BI Solution, entry-level and high-end reference configurations. With total IT costs that are nearly 60% less than the Oracle Exadata V2 environments, the question is not whether you need to look closer at the HP–Sybase BI Solution, the question is when.
