SAP HANA 2 is an evolution of the existing platform that gives you access to a stable, highly available and secure data environment for all your applications. Yet, SAP HANA 2 transforms database and data management with enhanced high availability, security and workload management, enterprise modeling, data integration, data quality, and tiered storage management. It comes with enhanced analytical processing engines for text, spatial, graph, and streaming data, improved application server capabilities and development tools.
In addition, new SAP HANA microservices are available by subscription through the SAP Hybris as a Service (informally referred to as “YaaS”) marketplace to spur developer innovation by embedding richer insight into modern applications. These announcements were made at SAP TechEd Barcelona being held Nov. 8–10.
“SAP pioneered in-memory computing with the launch of SAP HANA in 2010 and throughout our journey we have driven breakthrough innovation on a highly stable core data platform for our customers,” said Bernd Leukert, member of the executive board, Products and Innovation, SAP SE. “The release of SAP HANA 2 marks a milestone in the industry, as it represents the next generation of SAP HANA that will propel customers toward a successful and prosperous digital future.”
SAP HANA 2 is planned to be released to customers on November 30, 2016. The express edition of SAP HANA 2 will be available for delivery shortly after general availability to help organizations jump-start new development projects. As an innovation platform, SAP HANA 2 will deliver technology enhancements twice a year to support agile IT.
