What Is SAP HANA?
The “HANA” acronym stands for High-Performance Analytical Appliance. SAP HANA is an in-memory transactional database technology optimized for real-time SAP database query and reporting. While the SAP HANA database accelerator is marketed as an “in-memory” solution, it requires dedicated, special-purpose servers and storage to hold a view of the data for persistence and high availability.
These SAP HANA hardware appliances are available from several leading vendors, including IBM, HP and Cisco. Which one is right for you? Do you need SAP HANA or another flavor of SAP to meet your needs? Will you need to scale out your business analytics solution in the future? These are all common questions with not-so-common answers.
As an expert in SAP HANA on HP, IBM and Cisco platforms, Logicalis has created a workshop for SAP clients who are considering HANA solutions. This in-depth, one-on-one workshop will be held on-site at your company’s location. It is designed to help you identify the right business analytics solution for your company, and will help you create a long-term strategy that allows for scale-out while delivering the best total cost of acquisition and total cost of ownership positions possible.
