PBS Nearline Storage Solution for Sybase IQ also available for SAP BI 3.x

To date there are already three PBS nearline storage solutions including the current PBS CBW NLS IQ version for SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence 7.0. This version is based on the analytics server Sybase IQ with which extremely fast BI ad-hoc queries are realized even when high levels of nearline data compression also apply. As a result of customer inquiries, PBS now also provides the nearline connection of the analytics server Sybase IQ for the previous SAP BI Release 3.x. The new solution is an enhancement of the purely ADK-based solution PBS archive add on CBW, and therefore, it is called PBS archive add on CBW IQ.

The new solution requires SAP BI data archiving to have been performed correctly using ADK technology and furthermore makes it possible to store the archived SAP BI data on the Sybase IQ analytics server. At the same time, the column-based IQ technology enables extremely fast access as was already clearly demonstrated for SAP NetWeaver 7.0 at the PBS CBW Workshop in June of this year.

Since many SAP Business Intelligence customers are still using Release 3.x, PBS also wants to provide them with all the advantages of a nearline concept with the leading column-based analytics server Sybase IQ. At the same time, the display of archived data will also be supported using MultiProvider queries. If no MultiProviders are available, they can be generated in the PBS CBW Cockpit.

The use of this technology is particularly suitable when preparing a migration to BI Release 7.0. If archiving is performed consistently before a migration takes place, the migration can be structured much more efficiently. The archive data that was generated in Release 3.x is also made available for evaluation purposes in Release 7.0.
