Sybase ASE SBE Upgrade Path

By | Blog, Database Technology Trends, SAP ASE, SAP Sybase, Sybase
Sybase ASE SBE is the entry level ASE server from SAP comparable to the standard editions of Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server. For limited use or internal applications, its limitation of 256 concurrent connections and hard limit to physical CPU chips are not a problem. But the limitations to 2 CPU CPU sockets makes it nearly impossible to find hardware these days or migrating a physical server to a virtual environment. SAP replaced the ASE SBE server a few years ago with its new ASE Edge Edition server. This is actually a fully functional ASE Enterprise server only limited to a max of 8 cores and it runs on virtual servers. You could just go ahead and purchase a license to the new ASE Edge Edition to overcome the limitations, but what does this mean if you already invested into the ASE SBE server? Good News SAP will now allow legacy Sybase SBE customers to get conversion credit for existing licenses. That credit can then be used to acquire ASE Edge licenses and execute the new license transaction on SAP paper. You will also get a prorated rebate for any maintenance paid that will be applied to any new maintenance (more…)

In-Memory Databases vs Intel NVMe NUMA

By | Blog, Database Technology Trends, SAP HANA, Sybase | No Comments
For the past few years, the hot topic for database vendors was the in-memory database. The general belief was and maybe still is, that server memory is getting cheaper and density will continuously improve. For the most part, this has been the case, maybe not as extreme as predicted. However, the data storage needs for databases increased at a much faster pace during the same time, which created another problem. Going beyond 1TB of memory in a single server will quickly become very expensive. A 1TB database used to be called very large. This attribute is now applied to the 5-10 TB databases servers. In-memory databases are needed where read and write performance are equally important. Traditional databases improve read performance by caching data in memory, but there is no way to improve write performance. To be ACID (Atomic, Consistent, Isolated and Durable) compliant, data must be written to persistent storage. An in-memory database achieves this by writing every transaction in parallel to a high-performance storage. In many cases this is a flash drive on the PCI bus or a SSD drive. But every write action must be stored away from Memory (RAM) to be ACID compliant. There are many (more…)

SAP ASE Edge Edition

By | Preserved Content Pages | No Comments
This might be the biggest announcement from SAP you never heard of. After dropping the name Sybase from its product names last year, SAP is quietly reshaping its database platform offerings. And I mean this in a good way. Under the Sybase name there were 2 ASE products; Sybase ASE Enterprise Edition (EE) and Sybase ASE Small Business Edition (SBE). The Sybase ASE EE product was and still is the flagship and the most commonly known edition of Sybase. But it came with a hefty price ticket. To offer a Sybase ASE database server to the SMB market space, Sybase created ASE SBE, limited to 2 CPU sockets and 8 engines on a physical server, at a very low price. The server virtualization revolution has dramatically changed the server landscape and database servers made their transitions to the new world. The majority of newly deployed database servers are virtualized, either on premise or in the cloud. The Sybase ASE EE 15.7 database server enabled Sybase clients to make the move to the virtual servers with the introduction of the threaded kernel model. SAP ASE EE 16 continued the optimization for virtual servers and offers one of the most advanced database (more…)
