Cloud computing and SAP’s Hana in-memory database can be a powerful combination for data analysis, and new tools could help to make sure it doesn’t fall down on the job.
On Friday, NEC released a tool designed to make life easier for data analysts by boosting Hana availability in the cloud.
Focusing in particular on users of the Amazon Web Services cloud, the new tool takes advantage of NEC’s ExpressCluster software. The tool can automatically detect system faults as SAP Hana runs on AWS and switch over to a standby server when problems arise. The result, NEC said, is to shorten downtime and improve both availability and operational efficiency.
