German enterprise application software provider SAP is planning to unveil its HANA Cloud, a new cloud platform that is based on in-memory technology.
The company has also released its NetWeaver Cloud, an open standards-based application service and SAP HANA One, a deployment of SAP HANA certified for production use on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud, as the first offering based on SAP HANA Cloud.
SAP HANA One is a deployment option for the SAP HANA platform that can be deployed for production use with small data sets, in minutes, opening a door to starter projects from customers, ISVs and startups, the company said.
NetWeaver Cloud will enable customers and partners to create Java-based applications with consumer-grade experiences on mobile and portal, integrate on-premise and other cloud applications and ensure secure deployment and management delivered by SAP.
The company said, SAP NetWeaver Cloud also enables Java developers to build enterprise applications using the most popular Web and mobile frameworks, who want an open, flexible platform.
Using the SAP NetWeaver Cloud portal, line-of-business users can create improved external or internal sites and bring together social, unstructured and structured content with minimal IT involvement.
It also enables integration with SAP and non-SAP systems, either on premise or cloud-based, utilising the connectivity service.
The new cloud platform, SAP HANA Cloud, is also planned to include: SAP HANA AppServices and SAP HANA DBServices.
SAP HANA AppServices allows developers to create new applications using native SAP HANA, Java and other rapid-development services.
It also includes a set of shared services, which will provide support for portals, integration, mobile, analytics, collaboration and commercial services beside unified cloud enablement and life-cycle management.
The SAP HANA DBServices in SAP HANA Cloud provides database-as-a-service in the cloud.
