SAP HANA is a game-changing, real-time platform for analytics and applications.
While simplifying the IT stack, it provides powerful features like significant processing speed, the ability to handle big data, predictive capabilities and text mining capabilities
HANA DB takes advantage of the low cost of main memory (RAM), data processing abilities of multi-core processors and the fast data access of solid-state drives relative to traditional hard drives to deliver better performance of analytical and transactional applications.
It offers a multi-engine query processing environment which allows it to support relational data (with both row - and column-oriented physical representations in a hybrid engine) as well as graph and text processing for semi- and unstructured data management within the same system. HANA DB is 100% ACID compliant.
