A new press release reports, “SAP SE today announced enhancements to the SAP HANA database in the cloud and on premise that provide everyone instant access to critical data and extreme performance to democratize in-memory computing. Updates include enhanced cloud support, persistent memory support with Intel, intelligent recommendations for efficient database management, new machine learning (ML) capabilities, hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) certification, improved cost-effective data tiering and data security enhancements. These SAP HANA innovations help organizations be more intelligent, agile and efficient.”
The release goes on, “SAP HANA now scales cost-efficiently by offering customers the flexibility and choice of managing data and running applications across multi-cloud, hybrid and on-premise environments. The latest release improves application performance with increased memory capacity, while reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) through enhanced data tiering with the new SAP HANA native storage extension and support for the new Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory modules. ‘We evaluated the new persistent memory technology from Intel with two of our existing SAP HANA systems and experienced greater than 400 percent improvement in data load times at startup, which will really help maintain business continuity for planned maintenance and more,’ said Daniel Rothmund, IT manager for SAP Development and Innovation at Geberit, a European leader of sanitary products.”
