Experience the Power of
in-memory Databases with SAP HANA
Compete in today’s business environment with a database solution that accelerates real-time, data-driven decisions. If you’re a business struggling to handle your growing database, SAP HANA can solve this issue because it can store and retrieve your data faster compared to other applications – allowing you to perform all transactions and analytical operations from a single system.
SAP HANA is a relational database management system which provides the next-generation, in-memory data management foundation for your solution – because your growing organization and unstructured data should be managed efficiently.
It’s a column-oriented in-memory database that runs advanced analytics alongside high-speed transactions – in a single system. This design enables you to process massive amounts of data with near zero latency, query data in an instant, and become truly data-driven. By storing data in column-based tables in main memory and bringing Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) and Online Transactional Processing (OLTP) together, SAP HANA is unique – and significantly faster than other database management systems (DBMS) on the market today.

It is not possible to disable the check because SAP HANA is highly optimized for specific hardware configurations which have been designed and tested together with our hardware partners. Outside of these validated configurations, SAP HANA performance and stability cannot be guaranteed.
Before installing or updating SAP HANA, consult the SAP HANA Product Availability Matrix (search for HANA) to verify if the hardware you are planning to use is supported by SAP HANA. If the hardware is not supported, the hardware check returns the results “not supported” in the system manufacturer, system product name, CPU model, OS, memory total, or core count check results.
The check is automatically delivered with the SAP HANA software and can be executed as a standalone check anytime. Execute the check by going to the /usr/sap/
