Yes, it does require new, memory-intensive hardware -- whether that's for analytical or transactional applications.

re: SAP Vows Hana Is Ready To Run ERP
SAP is definitely taking a big risk with Hana for Business Suite. I asked around at Saphire but so far I fail to be convinced that Hana is truly ready for transaction processing on the type of scale and with the sort of SLA that large businesses require. What makes me suspicious is that nobody is willing or able to discuss real-life numbers about Hana for ERP like how many SAPS Hana can actually deliver on specific hardware configurations. In my book that means Hana is not ready for real.
Before I am comfortable recommending running our ERP on Hana I need to see tangible proof. In the mean time we are looking to drop Oracle for our ERP this year and right now our best option looks to be Sybase. At Sapphire I heard there are over 1000 deployments of ERP on Sybase today, overall this sounds more realistic than ERP on Hana.

Does SAP HANA need new hardware to run Suite on HANA?

I believe you do not need new hardware, you just need to replace your DB with SAP HANA DB.

re: SAP Vows Hana Is Ready To Run ERP
I ran into another analyst at Sapphire who said he though SAP is "taking a big risk" rushing Business Suite on Hana to market. Snabe said "We would never announce a product as generally available unless we felt we have a solid solution," but I seem to remember that Business ByDesign was withdrawn from the market after launch because SAP determined it had the architecture all wrong.
