SAP HANA Cloud Platform is an open source platform that was developed by SAP SE as a cloud service to provide scalable solutions for developing new software or adding applications to an existing cloud server managed by SAP. The SAP HANA Cloud Platform combines applications and data from all the different sources to form a unified intelligence.
The Cloud infrastructure consists of three components: an application layer, an infrastructure layer, and an analytics layer. These components allow data access to the different systems that are needed for analytics and processing of the data.
The Cloud services include all the elements required for managing the application and Cloud infrastructure. The main purpose of these services is to provide application development, data processing, and cloud services. The application development provides a way for the developers to develop business logic and applications. The data processing provides integration, data loading, and data ingestion for the developers.
The Cloud services can be divided into two categories. The first category includes the analytics and other business services, including the processing and reporting tools. The second category consists of data security for the Cloud services and other business applications. Data security is very important for the business application that is not secured.
The SAP HANA Cloud can be hosted in various ways. The cloud services can be offered in the public cloud, in private cloud, or on SaaS (Software as a Service). The choice depends on the type of application and the business requirements.
The private cloud is hosted on the dedicated servers of the SaaS hosting company and the public cloud is hosted on shared servers. This Cloud service will give you the freedom to use the same environment for your applications as the company uses for the public cloud. The dedicated servers will also help you to develop the applications faster as the system will be well maintained and you will have the freedom to deploy them with the company data.
The SaaS will also help you to manage the resources and provide cost savings. You can also share the infrastructure to other clients. It is better to choose a cloud service provider that has a proven track record than one that has been established recently.
