SAP HANA, released in 2011, is used to support in-memory processing of large data volumes. The solution is delivered as an integrated hardware and software complex. It includes SAP’s software and a certified infrastructure solution provided by the company’s technological partners (in the case of FLEXTERA BI SAP HANA Edition, the infrastructure part is represented by Fujitsu Power Appliance for SAP HANA).
As a universal multi-purpose solution, SAP HANA allows realizing different usage scenarios. For example, it can be used for the development of flexible BA applications for the online analysis of huge data volumes; for the acceleration and streamlining of the existing business applications; or for the development of new generation solutions, initially designed on the SAP HANA Platform.

Fujitsu’s expertise in the development of such infrastructure solutions as FlexFrame for SAP, allowed the company to become the first technological partner of SAP that had certified its cluster configuration supporting RAM extension up to 8 Tb.
