BI209 Experiences from Large Data Warehouse Implementations. The 60 Terabyte Showcase
IBM and SAP cooperated on behalf of a large SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence (SAP NetWeaver BI) customer to develop and run a proof of concept for the next generation of very high-end SAP NetWeaver BI requirements. Based on actual customer data and data models, the system grew from 7 TB to 20 TB and finally reached 60 TB. This proof of concept demonstrates the strength of the technologies and skills resulting from this synergy. The challenge was to demonstrate the scalability, manageability, and reliability of the SAP NetWeaver BI application and the infrastructure design. This session discusses the architecture and shares the findings and observations from both SAP and IBM with the interested audience.
