The certification is valid for a particular enterprise storage product family of the manufacturer hardware wherein multiple models might be included. The product family can be defined as a set of enterprise storage models that share and fulfill all of the following criteria:



  • They are based on the same architecture
  • They use same storage connector(s) as described in the documentation
  • Comparable components are used as with the tested setup
  • All the KPIs are met by the lowest member of the product family
  • Consistent documentation for product family which is applicable
    for all SAP HANA setup scenarios: single node, scale up and scale out.


During the preparation phase of the certification Partner and SAP can jointly agree on the product family.
