Finally ! SQL 2014 certified for SAP
After a long wait , we finally hap SAP Certification for SQL 2014. The details can be found at Juergan Thomas’ blog here
As expected , there is support for the new 2014 ColumnStore feature – particularly useful for SAP BW scenarios.
Amongst the other features , I see that Azure also plays a big role – In fact Azure DR for SAP Netweaver seems to be a hot topic. You can find a whitepaper on this here.
Now , there was something missing in the announcement – Support for SAP Netweaver using SQL Server In-Memory OLTP. Apparently , it has to do with the fact that IMOLTP uses Snapshot Transaction Isolation Level , while SAP Netweaver normally uses Read Committed.
Disappointing – but I’m sure that we’ll have some good news on this soon !
