SAP HANA is a column-oriented, in-memory relational DBMS. HANA is architected to enable
applications to support both transactional and analytical processing on a single system with
one copy of the data.
The DBMS, which runs on SUSE Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, enables real-time
analytics on transactional systems on a large scale and on a variety of data, including
structured, unstructured, spatial, time series and streaming data. It provides features that
support development for SAP and custom-built applications. SAP HANA combines database,
advanced analytics (predictive, spatial, text analytics, sentiment analysis, search), enterprise
information management (bulk load, real-time replication, transformation, cleansing) and
application server capabilities all running in-memory, on one data copy and on a single
SAP HANA supports multi-tenancy and data tiering, which enables petabyte-scale
deployments for warm data (data that's less frequently accessed) to be stored on the disk, and
offers a choice of deployment models and partners. The DBMS can be deployed on-premises,
in the SAP Cloud Platform or as a hybrid of both.
By leveraging the IBM Workload Scheduler plug-in for SAP HANA Database, you will be able
to schedule these mission critical jobs, both on-premise and on the SAP Cloud Platform, from
a single interface .
