SAP HANA is an in-memory, column-based,database management and application development system. Its main function is to store and retrieve data as requested by the applications it runs. In terms of performance, SAP HANA is many times faster than a traditional database.
SAP HANA has a unique column-based and in-memory design. The column-based design allows HANA to read and perform faster than other technologies, while the in-memory design provides faster data querying and data processing. By combining these two factors along with SAP HANA’s analytical capabilities, you get a database that provides a superior user experience.
Prior to HANA, there were limitations on how much data could be stored or processed in a single operation. For example,if you tried to view your company’s purchase orders for an entire fiscal, it would take quite some time to run such a report. There was even a chance that the operation would fail while running, leading you to explore other options such as running the report in the background or in smaller chunks. With SAP HANA, such a large report can be read and processed so quickly that you wouldn’t encounter such obstacles.
SAP HANA can be deployed on premise, on public cloud, or in a hybrid approach depending on the business need. For businesses looking for greater flexibility, agility, and cost savings, public cloud is the best option. By running SAP HANA on public cloud, you receive the following benefits in addition to what HANA already has to offer:
