Installing and Configuring SAP IQ as Extended Storage for SAP HANA
SAP HANA SP7 includes HANA extended tables, which logically sit in SAP HANA and can be used as if they were regular SAP HANA tables. However, the data in the HANA extended tables are physically located in an SAP IQ server connected to an SAP HANA server. SAP IQ is ideal for storing and accessing extremely large data. Fundamentally, the extended storage feature allows BW-on-HANA to handle petabyte-scale data volumes at an attractive price point. This document describes how to install and configure SAP IQ as the extended store for SAP BW on HANA.
