In today's business environment, SAP customers rely on the most efficient, highest performance, and most reliable storage solutions available. There is also the need to accelerate business growth while keeping costs under control. Database, system, and storage administrators often over-allocate server and storage capacity to resolve performance and space issues. The use of Solid State Disks (SSD) combined with the Thin Provisioning (ThP) capability of an HP StorageWorks XP Disk Array is a solution that addresses such requirements. SSDs can provide a significant performance boost for SAP applications compared to Hard Disk Drives (HDD). All of the available disk space is fully utilized for SAP and other applications using ThP.
