What is SAP HANA?

SAP HANA can be defined as an appliance that combines SAP software components optimized on hardware provided by SAP’s leading hardware partners.  It comes in a bundle of softwares along with the hardware (servers). SAP HANA servers are sold in “t-shirt” sizes ranging from Extra-Small (128GB RAM) all the way up to Extra Large (>2TB RAM) with multicore CPUs.

SAP HANA is both a database (in the traditional sense) and a database platform (in the modern sense).

In its current form SAP HANA can be used for four basic types of use case:

1. Agile Data Mart (Stand-alone database for reporting)

2. SAP business suite accelerator (secondary database for SAP business suite for reporting, calculation and analysis purpose)

3. A primary database for SAP Netweaver warehouse.

4. A development platform for new applications
