SAP Enables HANA Analytics on Amazon Cloud
Companies now can deploy business- or consumer-facing applications already built on the HANA database to use the in-memory transactional and analytical data processing that comes with the service.SAP's got a hot new in-memory database with analytics, and Amazon Web Services has the cloud to make it widely available as a service, so it's a natural that the two IT companies announced Oct. 16 that they have gone into business together. At SAP's TechEd 2012 conference, being held through Oct. 19 in Las Vegas, the Germany-based enterprise software company announced that its HANA One platform has been certified for production use on the AWS Cloud and is available now for subscription on the AWS Marketplace at 99 cents per hour. SAP HANA One enables instant provisioning of the Web services platform on the elastic AWS Cloud. It can be provisioned by AWS on advanced hardware with memory capacity up to 60GB of RAM per instance. This enables companies to deploy business- or consumer-facing applications already built on the HANA database to use the in-memory transactional and analytical data processing that comes with the service.
Developers can use the AWS Marketplace to identify, buy and begin using software that runs on the AWS Cloud in order to provision and instantly access SAP HANA, the company said.
