Outboard 2.0Complete Data Management andHANA support 14. Introduction SAP HANA as an in-memory solution offers undreamt-ofpossibilities, in particular by the extreme acceleration ofthe loading processes. By the high cost of operation and the acquisition ofHANA, we see a functional gap: data can be kept onlyin memory. We recommend to close this gap through a combinationof near-line-storage (NLS) and a smart storagemanagement solution.1414 2008 15.

FileHANA Corporate File / DBCloud Cloud End oflifecycleDeletionTo accommodate a variety of customer needs in terms of reporting speed and TCO reduction we offer a range ofstorage layers:1. SAP cluster tables for high compression and fast access. These tables will be stored in HANA2. External DB: Sybase IQ & MaxDB native or Remote DB3. File or Enterprise cloud: delivers the best TCO and allows for maximum flexibility4. At the end of the lifecycle data can be deleted from OutBoard automatically 15 2008 16. Storage Layer ConceptEnables you to manage cost of storageinline with the value of information.Data can be transfered to other layersmanaging various aging thresholds.Example: 1.Up to 2 years in HANA 2.2-3 years in cluster tables on HANA 3.3-7 years in external / remote DB 4.7-15 years in file 5.15+ will be deleted16 2008 17.

Sybase IQ as a data smart store that allows for fast access while being operated at lower TCO than HANA SAP MaxDB is a proven and robust technology that delivers superior TCO and seamlessly integrates into any SAP landscape Remote DB allows you store and read the data via RFC connection to/from a SAP NetWeaver (and the corresponding underlying DB); this option best leverages existing investments and is operated at low cost17 2008 18.
