Let us now have a look at the emerging power-saving technology trends. How to use them best is a challenge primarily for the technology developers at SAP. Software must support the available power saving techniques at both the hardware and the software level:
- On the hardware level CPUs, the main power consumers, are getting more and more power-aware.
- On the software level, SAP software must support and actively integrate the new power management functionalities of the CPUs and the operating systems.
One direction that in-memory computing is going is to achieve unified real-time analytical capabilities by combining OLTP (Online transaction procession) and OLAP (Online analytical processing) in a single in-memory database.
In the related article we discuss the following topics with regards to sustainable programming in more detail:
- Accounting for energy-saving technologies on hardware level
- Accounting for energy-saving technologies on software level
- Main Memory Computing
Please let us know what you think about how software should support the available power saving techniques at both the hardware and the software level.
