SAP HANA and SAP SCM liveCache

What is the difference between SAP HANA and SAP SCM liveCache?

The SAP liveCache technology can be characterized by a hybrid main-memory database with intensive usage of database procedure, implemented today on traditional RDBMS like DB2, SQL etc., whereas HANA is a In Memory data base running on HANA DB.

The SAP liveCache technology significantly increases the speed of the algorithmically complex, data- and runtime-intensive functions of various SAP applications, especially within SAP Supply Chain Management. It combines the advantages of main memory-based data retention with a complete operating concept, including backup & recovery. The application functions are provided by database procedures (liveCache Applications) having an extremely fast access to all application data which can completely cached in main-memory and are organized in relational but mainly object oriented manner.
