SAND Technology’s SAND/DNA™ product for use with SAP NetWeaver BI is specifically designed to complement the data lifecycle management capabilities available to organizations as their data warehouse solutions grow in size. With SAND/DNA, users can move infrequently used data into a nearline repository, where it is stored in a highly compressed format while remaining easily accessible without uncompressing. As a result, storage costs are reduced without compromising users’ ability to access granular historical data.
