BWA – Business Warehouse Accelerator – composite post

After few other composite notes related to HANA and BW 7.3 I’m coming with another SAP technology which (even though I write about it) deserver separate composite post.

BWA formerly known as BIA is a technology for accelerating access to data in BW. Data from cubes are being indexed into different – compressed and column based form represented in form of file. From file data is being cached in memory (blades). For details see my previous post. BWA can be considered as predecessor of HANA.
