IDERA Introduces Workload Analysis for SAP HANA

Solution enables smooth transition to in-memory computing platform as alternative to traditional, relational databases

HOUSTON, TX – Dec 07, 2016 – IDERA, a leading provider of database lifecycle management solutions, today released Workload Analysis for SAP HANA. The product helps data teams transition to SAP HANA and simplifies the operation of these high-performance databases, allowing businesses to benefit from the real-time insight and analytics made possible by SAP’s unique technology.

SAP HANA is an in-memory computing platform that allows companies to analyze large volumes of data quickly to deliver more business intelligence and simplify IT operations. The platform is gaining momentum in SAP environments and over other traditional database platforms where database administrators (DBAs) are consolidating multiple database instances to expand access to real-time data and reduce costs.

IDERA’s Workload Analysis for SAP HANA complements SAP’s native tools, providing DBAs visibility into how memory is being used and how SQL code is working in their SAP HANA instance without any of the vulnerabilities that come from full management access. With IDERA tools, DBAs can now view their entire Oracle, SQL Server and SAP database environments, including SAP HANA and Sybase ASE.

“As businesses increasingly depend on the insights provided by real-time analytics, we will see more and more enterprises moving highly transactional workloads from traditional databases to in-memory databases like SAP HANA,” said Ted Lester, product manager, IT management solutions, IDERA. “Workload Analysis for SAP HANA can help customers make that transition with greater ease and confidence. Then, as hybrid environments mature, IDERA tools can be employed to give a true end-to-end view of the database lifecycle ecosystem and connect that to the entire business stack.”

IDERA’s Workload Analysis for SAP HANA provides visibility into new instances that helps data teams transition to the SAP HANA platform. The product’s simple and intuitive views allow DBAs to understand where they can get the most performance gains and to prove the efficiency impact to the business.

Key benefits include:

  • Simple web-based dashboard - provides a single customizable dashboard with an overview of statistical analysis and activity trends of all SAP HANA instances. The dashboard allows DBAs to quickly drill down into the details of captured performance metrics to pinpoint problems.
  • Real-time performance monitoring - focuses on granular, real-time monitoring and analysis of database performance to help DBAs identify problematic SQL statements, statistics for performance and heavily used components.
  • Comprehensive performance analysis - provides details for the top monitored instances, hosts, services, users and SQL statements for a selected time interval. DBAs can view trends for waits, response times, CPU and memory use and memory distribution. In sortable tables, the analysis lists top users and memory consumers, while displaying a summary of durations and counts, and the full text of SQL statements.
  • Simple performance tuning - optimizes SAP HANA databases and applications to reduce costs and improve performance. DBAs can quickly detect, resolve and prevent performance and availability problems via an automated and targeted analysis.
