Thanks to your performance engineering and SAP HANA certification team, SAP released support for vSphere 6.5 with SAP HANA SPS 12 or higher (incl. SAP HANA 2)!
SAP declares support for VMware vSphere 6.5 for virtual single-VM deployments in production scenarios of SAP HANA on either certified appliances or through SAP HANA tailored data center integration verified hardware configurations.
Currently we are limited to 4 TB vRAM, hosts are supported with up to 12 TB. Background is that we did not had a 6 TB system for our tests. RAM is ordered and once installed we will continue to work jointly with SAP on the 6 TB HANA vSphere 6.5 certification.
We also try hard to finish the certification for Multiple-SAP HANA VMs and Scale-Out configurations for production SAP HANA workloads with vSphere 6.0 and 6.5. So stay tuned for the next announcements!
