Curt Monash reports from his briefings with SAP:
SAP HANA has what sounds like a natural disk-based persistence strategy — logs, snapshots, and so on. SAP says that this is synchronous enough to give ACID compliance. For some hardware partners, those “disks” are actually Fusion I/O cards.
I rarely encounter such relative terms used to describe a database. Can I have a database that stores a good amount of my data at a superb speed using a bizarre cluster persistence strategy?
As a side note, according to what I’m reading around, SAP is betting a lot on HANA and sees in it the solution that will make SAP the second largest database vendor.
