SAP HANA on Cloud

Deploying SAP HANA on Public Cloud

SAP HANA is an in-memory, column-based,database management and application development system. Its main function is to store and retrieve data as requested by the applications it runs. In terms of performance, SAP HANA is many times faster than a traditional database.

SAP HANA has a unique column-based and in-memory design. The column-based design allows HANA to read and perform faster than other technologies, while the in-memory design provides faster data querying and data processing. By combining these two factors along with SAP HANA’s analytical capabilities, you get a database that provides a superior user experience.

Prior to HANA, there were limitations on how much data could be stored or processed in a single operation. For example,if you tried to view your company’s purchase orders for an entire fiscal, it would take quite some time to run such a report. There was even a chance that the operation would fail while running, leading you to explore other options such as running the report in the background or in smaller chunks. With SAP HANA, such a large report can be read and processed so quickly that you wouldn’t encounter such obstacles.

Why SAP HANA on Public Cloud?

SAP HANA can be deployed on premise, on public cloud, or in a hybrid approach depending on the business need. For businesses looking for greater flexibility, agility, and cost savings, public cloud is the best option. By running SAP HANA on public cloud, you receive the following benefits in addition to what HANA already has to offer:

  • Faster Deployments - Procuring SAP HANA certified hardware, racking, stacking and connecting all the required components takes time. On public cloud all the hardware ready the go, making your deployment faster.  
  • Cost Savings - with SAP HANA on public cloud, you can reduce the high up-front costs of IT with a pay as you go model.
  • Scalability - Public cloud provides customers with the capability to scale-on-demand for SAP HANA instances with ease and at a shorter time duration.
  • Flexibility - The wide geographic availability of public cloud provides customers with more options in terms of collaboration among employees and disaster recovery solutions for SAP HANA.
  • Security - The top public cloud providers invest hundreds of millions of dollars a year to insure the protection of customer data and business assets. With this level of investment,public cloud platforms tend to be safer than most on premise data centers.
