SAP HANA 2.0 offers valuable new features to users

SAP HANA 2.0 offers businesses a wide range of innovative new features. SAP’s latest database management system makes controlling SAP easier – and more productive – than ever.

Since the 2016 release of SAP HANA 2.0, SAP has been hard at work creating new support package stack instalments that capitalise on the latest developments in relational database management and analytics. The latest version contains all support package stacks released from the initial launch until today.

HANA 2.0: A Newer System for Database Management

SAP’s goal has always been innovation without disruption. Getting an entire global community of businesses on board with the latest software is a challenge for any vendor. SAP’s HANA releases are no exception. Combining all of the previous innovations with every new support package stack is one way to ensure SAP users can always rely on the best-in-class database server technology.

Some of the most important benefits that SAP HANA 2.0 offers to users are in the following areas: 

  • Security. HANA 2.0 includes anonymisation features, dynamic data masking, native data-at-rest encryption, table masking, and more. State-of-the-art tooling and auditing enhancements ensure that small businesses can achieve enterprise-level compliance goals. 
  • Administration. Multitenant architecture is a default feature of HANA 2.0. Usability continues to improve with every support package stack release. The administration and monitoring of multiple databases and tenants are easier and more intuitive than ever before.
  • Availability. HANA 2.0 makes data visible and available. Multitarget replication, takeover history, and multistreaming compatibility make the latest release one of the industry’s most effective hedges against organisational silos.
  • Improved Performance. Persistent memory allows devices to column store main data as RAM. This improves access time and ensures that systems don’t have to reload terabytes of data from storage every time the system is restarted.
  • Improved Cockpit Functionality. The HANA 2.0 cockpit runs as a separate HANA system with its own advanced application server infrastructure. It comes with a Database Explorer tool that provides in-depth schema navigation and SQL prompt access to execute queries.
