Updates on in-memory technology and SAP HANA
At TechEd Berlin 2010 I had the chance to talk to Jan Karstens, Development Architect at SAP, about frequently asked questions, such as “what happens if you pull the plug from an in-memory database” – and Jan answers this question very detailed.
He also speaks about differences to a conventional database, the advantages of in-memory technology, and also bottlenecks he sees in the near future.
Please watch the interview on “What’s Up with In-Memory?”.
At TechEd Las Vegas 2010 SAP Mentor Thorsten Franz interviewed Oliver Mainka, VP, and Mike Eacrett, Director Product Management for new SAP HANA product line at SAP.
They go very deep into SAP’s next generation of on-premise offering for SAP in-memory technology, which is SAP HANA – High Performance Analytic Appliance. Find out about features and business benefits of SAP HANA and when it will be delivered to our customers.
Please watch the interview on “Features and Business Benefits of SAP HANA”.

SAP HANA is the talk of the town in SDN for last 6 months.
What exactly this SAP new Baby ?
So in essence HANA 1.0 is a data mart, for very fast processing of potentially very large volumes of data.
In summer 2011 we will release the next version of HANA which will allow to be the only database under BW. Alternatively customers can still run the current setup with a regular on-disk DB and BWA as an in-memory accelerator for some time to come.
The longer-term goal for SAP is to make HANA an option as the only persistence of data under both Suite systems and BW.
