Excellent in-memory database that boosts performance

What is our primary use case?

I have customers who work with SAP, and I carried out performance research for them, comparing the different parameters of SAP HANA. The solution is generally used for data warehousing. 

What is most valuable?

I think the in-memory database is excellent as it boosts performance. 

What needs improvement?

The product lacks some flexibility in its settings and configurations.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The product is quite scalable.

How was the initial setup?

I don't think the initial setup is too complex. Obviously it's not easy because SAP HANA is a complex system, so it's somewhere in the middle.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing costs are quite expensive for the Ukraine but there is a range of different purchasing models so it's flexible in that sense. For a small enterprise, the costs might seem unreasonably high.

What other advice do I have?

I rate this solution eight out of 10.
