PBS NAI for the SAP Archiving Standard

The PBS Nearline Analytic Infrastructure is especially interesting to SAP customers who rely heavily on the standard archiving process in combination with the SAP Archive Information System. The use of PBS NAI opens up completely new opportunities for processing growing datasets in very large operative SAP systems. Using column-oriented database technology, you can accelerate archive indexing tremendously, reduce access times to data archives, and save an enormous amount of memory space. 

The NAI DART Viewer is suitable for data extraction during checks. Its column-based technology enables you to select the data from the DART extract and to group it into a view considerably faster than before.

NAI Archive Information System

ith the PBS NAI Archive Information System, an extended SAP Archive Information System, SAP data archives are automatically indexed column-based and compressed. By storing the indices in an columned-oriented analytics server, the ERP database is drastically relieved, since the disk space requirement is only around 10% compared with the ERP database. The column concept also simplifies the indexing logic considerably.

Save Costs with the FI Template

By greatly reducing indexing runtimes for archive data, PBS Nearline Analytic Infrastructure clearly reduces the operative costs of an operational SAP application system because it saves valuable time in the batch dialog. NAI archive indices from the production system can be read directly from several mirror systems. This multiplies the savings effect even further. The use of the FI template that is also supplied by PBS for the NAI-AS Archive Information System reduces memory space by around 80%.
