SAP plans cloud version of HANA appliance

John Ribeiro, IDG News Service | March 17, 2011
SAP plans to offer a version of its HANA (High-Performance Analytic Appliance) software that will allow customers to upload data to the vendor's own cloud setup for processing, rather than deploy related infrastructure in-house, a senior executive of the company said.

"There is no doubt that the design of the relational database is now so old, and was based on assumptions about hardware that are no longer relevant," Sikka said.

SAP business around its Sybase relational database will however continue to grow in industries such as financial services and telecommunications, particularly with its integration of HANA technology, Sikka said.
