Live Cache R/3 or Non-R/3 DB?


Is Live Cache a R/3 or Non-R/3 database?

This might be a very basic question but still I like to know the answer for this.




Hello Siva,

The SAP liveCache technology is an object-based enhancement of the MaxDB database system.

You can use SAP liveCache technology either as a normal relational database system, or as a main memory-based special database system.

You could find more documentation/information at SAP links: -> SAP SCM Technology

< "Architecture overview" & "liveCache overview" >

Within SAP APO 3., SCM 4., SCM 5.* the SAP APO functionality requires SAP liveCache Technology.

In the document "liveCache overview" you will see which SAP Application

Components using SAP liveCache Technology

Thank you and best regards, Natalia Khlopina
