In today’s world of bullet speed technology and the most sophisticated invention, people are always in the hunger of new and more advanced science pieces. The combination of all the organs of the science like the mathematics, computers, quantum and space knowledge has provided a new dimension and motive of thinking. Amidst of all this cloud computing and SAP HANA are some of the advanced resources, leading to new heights and peaks of further improvisation and advancement of research work and science.
Why do we need SAP HANA?
SAP HANA to be introduced primarily with the word database server. But what added to its merit are the column-oriented and in memory and advance search features. It even has the ETL capabilities, i.e. a process in database usage to prepare data for analysis, especially in data warehousing. It also comes with the application server which consists of a comprehensive layer model that acts as a set of components accessible to the software development through a standard API defined in the platform itself. SAP HANA was majorly brought into the industry due to the “Excess Value Data” problem which means storage problems for the excessive flow of data.
Specifications of SAP HANA?
Specifications of HANA include that it is the combination of both software and the hardware components which stores real-time data in the form of a row and column orientation. SAP HANA is based in a multi-core architectural environment in a distributed system. It is mainly used in the Memory computer Engine for the fast retrieving of a huge amount of data. It is written in C++ and mostly helps to run the real-time applications on those platforms where previously such operations were not possible.
SAP HANA is a web-based application server hosting user-facing applications tightly integrated with the database and analytics engines of HANA. IBM is the leading vendor supporting this application.
How Cloud computing is going to help us?
Cloud computing relies on the sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale, similar to a public utility. The humongous advantage of cloud computing lies in the fact that it has the least management effort and is usually done over the internet. Cloud computing
has taken its roots from the Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) that can help the user break the more complex, magnanimous problems into services that can be later infused together in a package to provide a solution.
The major benefits of cloud computing include its cost-effectiveness, which means it depends primarily on the users up to what extent they use the service and pays for it accordingly. Merging of such a large number of resources leads to the loftier enactment of the entire system and give accurate results. This kind of system is more secure as the system is maintained and kept by an intermediary provider and even the whole monitoring is done under it.
Yahoo and Google are the best specimens of cloud computing technologies.
As discussed by and large about the above mentioned latest technology, numerous questions pop into the mind of the people that where exactly will these resources lead us in the future. The availability of high-capacity networks, low-cost computers and storage devices as well as the widespread adoption of hardware virtualization, service-oriented architecture, and autonomic and cloud computing has led to growth in cloud computing. Talking about SAP HANA it’s lavishly costly and follows very strict guidelines, so it cannot be installed in any of the configured systems. And as exaggerated by many searches and results a lot of memory cannot be stored in it, maybe less than 15TB. So all these deadlocks between pros and cons don’t lead to a conclusion that whether these technologies serve our purpose or increases the purposes to be served!
