PBS Nearline Analytic Infrastructure (NAI):

Better Performance and flexible Analyses for Big Data

Is your SAP database growing rapidly and reaching vast data volumes very quickly? Here, the classical SAP data archiving features (ADK) might reach their limits: The runtimes to index and manage vast amounts of data are too long! An efficient archive access for display and reporting is no longer possible.

PBS NAI was specifically developed to cover these scenarios:

The PBS Nearline Analytic Infrastructure (NAI) provides extremely large data compression and significantly accelerates retrieval by using column-oriented database technology. The runtime to create index data for the PBS archive add ons is significantly reduced. Thus, PBS NAI is the ideal instrument to optimize system performance when dealing with large data volumes of archive data. For the first time, NAI enables to integrate ZARIX tables from the SAP Archive Information System (SAP AS) into a nearline database (such as SAP IQ and IBM DB2 BLU) and achieves a considerable improvement for customers with large-scale applications.

Integration of external data

Application data from any SAP table can be evaluated with fastest possible response times supporting all types of analysis needs. And PBS NAI offers much more: The advantages of the nearline
databases can be used for external (non-SAP) data, which can be analyzed quickly and flexibly via the analysis options of the SAP system.
