SAP has announced general availability of its new SAP HANA appliance software.

SAP HANA (High-Performance Analytic Appliance) is an in-memory database technology, which utilises main memory storage for data analysis, meaning much faster, simpler processing than disk-based databases.

The technology will introduce a wide range of real-time computing capabilities, including faster analytics, new applications and improved performance with existing SAP solutions.

"General availability is a major milestone for SAP HANA, but this is just the beginning," said Dr Vishal Sikka, executive board member, Technology and Innovation, SAP AG. "SAP HANA brings a fundamental transformation to the way companies run their businesses and is at the heart of innovation across our entire product and technology portfolio at SAP. As we showed at SAPPHIRE NOW a few weeks ago, SAP HANA provides significant business value to customers, and I look forward to the next milestones with SAP HANA, building breakthrough new applications and building out the SAP HANA application cloud to deliver them."

With the global availability, Fujitsu has announced that it is now offering a set of infrastructure solutions certified by SAP for HANA appliance software.

Fujitsu is pushing a full platform configured to run SAP HANA software, including Primergy servers, Eternus storage and networking solutions. Fujitsu will be offering a comprehensive set of services including pre-installed infrastructure, installation and applications services/

Fujitsu is also establishing a Global Demo Centre for SAP HANA in Neckarsulm, Germany, to demonstrate the technology, and which can also be accessed for remote demonstrations.
