When your SAP database is growing rapidly, there’s a good chance it’s producing vast data volumes quickly. When this happens, classic SAP data archiving features might be reaching their limits. Under these conditions, efficient archive access for display and reporting is no longer possible.
The PBS Nearline Analytic Infrastructure (NAI) provides extremely large data compression to significantly accelerate retrieval by using column-oriented database technology. The runtime to create index data for the PBS archive add ons is significantly reduced. That means PBS NAI is the ideal instrument to optimize system performance when dealing with large data volumes of archive data.
NAI enables the integration of ZARIX tables from the SAP Archive Information System (SAP AS) into nearline databases (such as SAP IQ and IBM DB2 BLU) and achieves a considerable improvement for customers with large-scale applications. Plus, the advantages of the nearline databases can be used for external (non-SAP) data, which can be analyzed quickly and flexibly via the SAP’s analysis options.
With PBS NAI, application data from any SAP table can be evaluated with the fastest possible response times, supporting all types of analysis needs.
