We have read references to the current SAP data center but want to confirm how our machine data would be stored in MindSphere and for how long? Cloud storage could be unlimited, but that also comes at a cost.
Let me try to give you a little overview of how we store data at the moment. SAP HANA and Cassandra are currently set up as hot storage. HANA is used to store master data, and currently also events and aggregated time series data. Currently, there is no limitation in HANA regarding the data stored and there won't be any limitation for the master data. Cassandra stores original time series data only for a given retention period which is currently from 3 months up to 3 years.
