SAP is making enhancements to the SAP HANA database in the cloud and on premise, providing 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.
“SAP HANA is the heart and soul of SAP,” said Gerrit Kazmaier, senior vice president of SAP HANA and Analytics at SAP. “The latest release of SAP HANA brings the power of data and in-memory computing to the masses by empowering organizations with a deeper understanding of their business for making the right decisions in the moment.”
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.
Customers benefit from intelligence built into SAP HANA that accelerates IT and data science operations by automatically processing analytical and transactional workloads in real time for any data type.
The new Python and R machine learning APIs enable data scientists to work in familiar environments while directly accessing data as well as powerful in-database ML capabilities in SAP HANA.
The latest version also provides database administrators with intelligent recommendations for SQL optimization, data tiering, and more.
SAP HANA modernizes data management by extending broad multi-cloud support and extreme flexibility for cloud, hybrid and on-premise deployments.
SAP offers HCI providers certification for SAP HANA to bring cloudlike infrastructure agility to all landscapes.
By supporting an advanced approach to data virtualization, SAP HANA continues to enhance its ability to seamlessly connect data everywhere.
In addition, SAP HANA was one of the first data platforms to anonymize personal data in real time without duplication. Now, with these further enhancements, SAP HANA offers end-to-end data privacy management.
