SAP has released its Hana “in-memory” computing appliance in New Zealand, which it hopes will revolutionise real-time data crunching. A number of companies are working on "in-memory" servers, helping to solidify the technology's "next big thing" status, but SAP is among the first off the blocks with getting product to market, and the first to push it locally.
"However, data held in memory by Hana is backed up by a persistence layer that logs transactions to a non-volatile technology (such as solid state drives) on the Hana server. This allows the data to be restored in the event of a power outage or other similar disruption, and ensures that customer data is never lost."
