On September 16th, Oracle publicly released the benchmark white paper describing the results of SAP BW-EML Benchmark using Oracle In-Memory option. The results demonstrated that Oracle Database
12c runs SAP applications 2x faster than SAP HANA.
For your SAP clients running on Oracle Database make sure you consider the following points:
- Why Risk Disrupting Your Client Business with SAP HANA
No application changes required. Oracle Database In-Memory is 100
percent compatible with all existing applications to transparently
accelerate analytics for mixed workloads for both OLTP and data
warehouse databases. No complexity, no compromises, no risks. Modern
in-memory technology simply and seamlessly works with your business—not
the other way around.
- Instant Analytics: 2x Faster Than SAP HANA
Oracle Database In-Memory implements a dual-format architecture and
state-of-the-art algorithms to accelerate analytics by orders of
magnitude. This allows users to get immediate answers to business
questions that previously took hours. This same Oracle in-memory
technology is proven to speed up SAP applications 2x faster than SAP
HANA. Read the benchmark white paper.
- More Cost-Effective Than SAP HANA
Oracle Database In-Memory does not mandate that all data fit in-memory.
Database queries execute transparently on data residing on all three
tiers—memory, flash, and disk—enabling Oracle Database In-Memory to be
used with databases of any size in order to take advantage of the
combination of fast in-memory and low-cost storage technologies.
