SAP Vora2.0 was recently released and I want to take this opportunity to introduce this new version to our customers and partners and share the key reasons and motivation in migrating from Vora1.x to 2.x code line

Renewed architecture based on Docker containers and Google Kubernetes

  • With SAP Vora2.0 we are moving to a new architecture based on delivering Vora as Docker containers and leveraging Kubernetes as cluster management tool for managing these containers

  • Decouple Vora installation from Hadoop infrastructure – this means Vora will be installed on a separate Kubernetes cluster running on commodity hardware (similar to Hadoop nodes)

  • Easier support for new Hadoop and Cloud storage layers such as Azure ADLS (planned in 2.1) and broader Cloud adoption

  • Dynamic provisioning of Vora containers in Cloud deployments to help lower TCO especially for “stateless” applications when running resource intensive data pipelines.

Integration with SAP Data Hub

  • SAP Data Hub is a brand-new solution that SAP announced earlier this week and this enables customers to build more efficient data pipelines that leverage existing ETL jobs but also combine innovative Machine Learning algorithms into the pipelines

  • SAP Vora is now included as part of Data Hub and is the distributed processing engine for this new solution

In addition to the above capabilities, SAP Vora2.0 also delivers the following new enhancements,

  • Enhanced debugging and root cause analysis by delivering new Monitoring and Diagnostic Framework

  • Support for Apache Spark 2.x

  • Data Lifecycle Management support for SAP Vora as a target (restricted shipment with DLM2.0 sps02 planned for Oct2017)

  • New table type support for Streaming data with IoT use cases.

  • Optimized connectivity between HANA and Vora using voraodbc interface by leveraging ITAB structures

  • Migration tools for moving Vora1.4 content (tables, views, models) to Vora2.0 landscape
