Huawei Cloud ECS Beats Everyone in SAP Performance Evaluation

Oct 17, 2018 GMT+08:00

HUAWEI CLOUD ECS m3.8xlarge.8 beats all other competitors in SAP SD2 benchmark testing. 


The excellent performance of the HUAWEI CLOUD SAP solution further demonstrates the benefits of working closely together – something the organizations have been doing in IaaS layer optimizations for years now. Huawei and SAP provide the most cost-effective SAP-based cloud solutions for enterprise users.

SAP Performance Testing

SAP SD2 benchmark testing measures performance of On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) applications. During the testing, service applications and databases are installed on the same virtual host. The Benchmark Tool is installed on the client side to execute SAP Application Performance Standard (SAPS) on the application module. The standard is an independent hardware performance index.

A value of 100 SAPS is equivalent to processing 2000 business orders per hour. Processing of each order item includes new order generation, delivery note generation, order display, change in delivery content notice, stocking of
goods, order listing, and invoice generation. The value is also equivalent to 2400 SAP transactions per hour or 6000 console changes and 2000 entry operations per hour. 

Performance of HUAWEI CLOUD ECS m3.8xlarge.8

HUAWEI CLOUD used m3.8xlarge.8 in the performance test. m3.8xlarge.8 achieved a SAPS value of 56280 and a SAPS/vCPUs value of 1758.75 with only 32 vCPUs, setting the bar in the league.
