SAP HANA Tailored Datacenter Integration (TDI)
What does TDI stand for?
TDI stands for Tailored Datacenter Integration and describes a program that allows HANA customers to leverage existing hardware and infrastructure components for their HANA environment. Typically an HANA appliance comes with all necessary components pre-configured and is provided by certified HANA hardware partners. TDI targets the usage of certain hardware and infrastructure components already existing in a customer's landscape instead of the corresponding components delivered with a HANA appliance.
A very well written paper from EMC also explains the drivers and benefits of TDI.
