Hit there,

HANA or High-performance Analytic Appliance is a data warehouse appliance, which is a  combination of hardware and software products that is specifically designed for analytical processing, and since HANA is of this type it has the capability to process High volumes of operational and transactional data in real-time . HANA unlike other data warehouse appliances uses in-memory analytics that queries data stored in the primary memory instead of secondary storage or flash memory.

Also unique to HANA is its use of SAP Sybase replication server to copy and synchronize data from enterprise resource planning or ERP application in real time. Hope that answers any questions regarding HANA

The word “HANA” is often referred as an acronym for “High Performance Analytic Appliance” and also for “Hasso's New Architecture” but it’s not. It’s not an acronym for something but is actually a name. SAP HANA is the application of SAP AG for the in-memory database technology. It is composed of several components:

  • SAP HANA DB [HANA DB] – refers to itself;
  • SAP HANA Studio – is the set of tools supplied by SAP;
  • SAP HANA Appliance – another term used for HANA DB when it is delivered to certified hardware partner as an appliance. This includes the modeling tools from HANA Studio together with data transformation and replication tools to transfer data into HANA DB;
  • SAP HANA One – this is the distribution of the certified SAP HANA to be used on production on the Amazon Web Services cloud or AWS.
  • SAP HANA Application Cloud – this is the cloud-based infrastructure for the distribution of the applications.

Many thanks Rasoda_Frak and Sharath Reddy for your valuable comments. I am a new business owner and one of my friends recommended me to try SAP HANA. He said that it has totally been remodeled, and is currently using a modern platform that allows real-time posting of business transactions. He also told me that HANA can help me radically accelerate the speed at which I do my analysis, business procedures, data processing, et cetera. He said that all this is done through an in-memory computing platform. Because of the positive attributes I got, I am really interested in HANA. Sharath’s comments taught me all I needed to know about HANA. I am sure this application will have great impact on my new business.
