Blog Post created by Parisa Fathi Employee on Dec 7, 2016

Our benchmark campaign continues !   Just over a month ago we set a new world record for new 4 Billion records and I wrote a blog about it, Not 2 but 4 Billion Reasons to Choose Hitachi for your SAP HANA Environment.  Just a few weeks later, we have a new record again!  I am excited to announce that we have set a new 2 Billion record!  On Nov 18, 2016, SAP, on behalf of the SAP Benchmark Council, certified (Certification number: 2016055) the latest SAP BW Advance Mixed Load Benchmark (BW-AML Benchmark) where Hitachi now ranks first for the 2 billion initial record load, see Benchmark Results.
