Like the previous release, the 2.0 release will be available in two editions, standard edition and enterprise edition. Restricted shipment is planned to start by mid-April.
Enterprise edition focuses on improved usability as well as enhanced functionality in several key areas such as the system copy/refresh framework.
New features include custom provisioning, and support for additional SAP applications such as SCM, CRM, and BW as sources for system copies. Addtional supported databases include SAP Sybase ASE, SAP HANA and DB2 on z/OS.
Standard edition comprises a subset of the functional scope of enterprise edition and does not include the system provisioning functionality.
