    Hi Pradeep ,

    when you are pulling unstructured data the will use Hadoop , via BODS you will pull data to HANA.

    Hadoop is considered as one of the best in storing the structured, semi-structured and unstructured data.

    Combine structured and un-structured data and transfer it to SAP HANA via a Hadoop / HANA Connector.

    Below is High level diagram how HANA & Hadoop are integrated.

    I Request you read my blogs on HANA-Hadoop integration. ,

    Kindly let me know still if you have any questions....

    Vivek : Thanks for sharing by blog links.

      Hello Pradedeep,

      Integration with Big data like Hadoop, Teradata, etc.. or any other sources is done by SDA(Smart Data Access) in SAP HANA.

      Bca, SAP HANA Database consists 2 types of table or data , i.e Hana Table or Data and Virtual Table or Data.

      1. Hana Table lies inside of SAP HANA Database for combining its own data.

      2. Virtual Table, which is used for  combining SAP HANA data with other heterogeneous data sources like Hadoop, Teradata, SAP Sybase ASE and SAP Sybase IQ.

      This is called Smart Data Access(SDA).
