The certification is valid for the period stipulated in the Integration Certification Agreement.  The exact validity date of the certification is indicated in the certification letter that is issued upon successful completion of testing.

The certification confirms the existence of product features in accordance with SAP certification procedures. SAP only certifies successful integration of the product with SAP solutions. Vendor is responsible for the product itself and its error-free operation.


Certified Enterprise Storage

The certification is valid for a particular enterprise storage family of the hardware manufacturer wherein multiple models might be included. During the preparation phase of the certification, the Partner and SAP can jointly agree on the group of appliances to be certified. The storage 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 the same storage connector(s)

·         Comparable components are used as with the tested setup

·         All the KPIs are met by the lowest member of the storage family

·         Consistent documentation for the storage family which is applicable for all SAP HANA setup scenarios: single node, scale up and scale out
