Load all HANA data to HADOOP

Hi folks,

My HADOOP team is looking for a way to replicate all ECC data into HADOOP system using HANA as the middle man. I've been doing some research and mostly I'm finding SCN posts on doing the opposite; consuming aggregated or reduced HADOOP data into HANA. To me that's how HADOOP should be leveraged but I'm trying to see what others are doing. My questions;

1) Is anybody doing this (loading all HANA data into HADOOP on daily basis)? Is this really best practice and is there any good documentation on this approach?

2) Does anybody know much about HANA Dynamic Tiering? I was asked to look into this and as far as I can tell it seems to be intended for BW scale out system. Our HANA system that contains SAP replicated data is a single node scale up system so I do not think this can be leveraged.

3) I'm not clear on how delta mechanism would work. Is it possible to somehow use log files in HANA and pull inserts/updates/deletes this way?

    Hi Patrick,

    1) Your scenario from Hadoop to HANA is interesting . I have seen until now all opposite directions now. Can you please share the business use case for the same so that we can think of something else.

    I think even SAP HANA Vora focus on the approach of moving on data from Hadoop to Hana and not vice versa.

    2) on HANA dynamic tiering , did you got a chance to look at below link:…
