This IDC study shows that the following capabilities improvements can provide distinct differentiation potential for HANA appliance vendors: more integration (computer, storage, networking); better system performance and utilization; virtualization for production; better management software; easier maintenance and more automation; greater network bandwidth, better I/O, and more cloud deployment options; greater storage interface speeds and better storage management and security; and more training and more support with database migrations."The HANA appliances market appears saturated given the large number of vendors participating and the even larger number of configurations for HANA vendors are marketing. But distinct differentiation opportunities exist for server vendors that pay attention to customer needs in terms of the importance of, and levels of satisfaction with, specific solutions," says Peter Rutten, research manager, Enterprise Server Solutions at IDC's Enterprise Servers: Technology Markets service.
