SAP HANA Platform

Support Package Stack 09 (Last Update: November 28, 2014, Revision 90)

The SAP HANA platform is a flexible, data source-agnostic, in-memory data platform that allows customers to analyze large volumes of data in real time. As a development platform, it provides the infrastructure and tools for building high-performance applications based on SAP HANA Extended Application Services (SAP HANA XS). It is the foundation for various SAP HANA editions, like the SAP HANA Platform Edition which provides core database technology through components such as the SAP HANA database, SAP HANA studio, and SAP HANA clients, or the SAP HANA Enterprise Edition which bundles additional components for data provisioning.

As an appliance, SAP HANA combines software components from SAP optimized on proven hardware provided by SAP’s hardware partners. As an alternative to the appliance model, tailored data center integration (TDI) targets the use of hardware and other infrastructure components already existing in a customer’s landscape.

Note: The full documentation set for this and older support package stacks of the SAP HANA platform is available on SAP Service Marketplace Information published on SAP siteLogin required.
