What is SAP HANA Cloud?
The first-ever cloud-based offering of SAP HANA was announced in 2012, which included SAP HANA AppServices and SAP NetWeaver Cloud, partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS). In 2019, SAP released its SAP HANA Cloud Services, which included SAP Analytics Cloud, SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, and SAP HANA Cloud. But It wasn't until April 2020, that SAP announced with its most recent release of SAP HANA 2.0 SPS 05, the introduction of SAP HANA Cloud, (previously known as SAP Cloud Platform), an in-memory cloud database as a service (DBaaS).
SAP HANA Cloud is a cloud-native platform providing a single database to access, store, and process all data. Not only do customers benefit from the capabilities of SAP HANA, but they have even more flexibility and reliability when using the cloud. With the ability to use it as a stand-alone solution or as an extension to your on-premise landscape, you are able to leverage instant automatic software updates, low total cost of ownership (TCO), and the freedom to up-scale or down-scale your database. With SAP HANA Cloud, you can bind SAP HANA databases with your other applications, while having multiple languages and interface options. The cloud allows customers to manage data storage and data virtualization at high-level efficiency, depending on their own independent business needs. Making faster and better business decisions through the use of real-time data is its purpose.
