The launch of SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud heralds a new era of in-memory computing. According to Professor Hasso Plattner, chairman of the SAP supervisory board, HANA in the Cloud facilitates a model where all applications are run real-time thereby eliminating the need for batch processing.
According to Professor Plattner, the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud currently consists of 500 servers from IBM, Hewlett-Packard and Cisco that are integrated using high performance switches from Arista Networks. The servers and switches are tightly coupled in what SAP describes as cells, with each cell consisting of 40 servers to provide 100TB of in-memory computing per cell.
According to him, HANA eliminates the barriers to Cloud Computing adoption that arise out of disk latency issues and ensures that the applications run at such a performance level that the physical location of the HANA servers turn out to be irrelevant.
Moreover, the size of the overall data center environment will be much less because of the compression technologies that allow the HANA platform to process terabytes of data in memory.
All these benefits ensure that SAP HANA is here to stay and is certainly leading the big data and in-memory computing into a new era.
