Importance of offering lower barriers to entry for developers
You have probably already seen our offering to get a free 30-day trial on SAP HANA. What you may not be aware of is that SAP is collaborating with CloudShare to make SAP HANA available to developers ON THE CLOUD. What does this mean? How is this ‘lowering the barriers of entry’? Let’s take a look:
- There is no need for developers to install or configure anything to get started
- It takes 60 seconds to get the SAP HANA environment up and running – including the SAP HANA Studio Developer Edition
- Developers can use it all in the cloud, or use a local installation and connect to the cloud
- At any time during the trial, developers can move to the next level by upgrading to a free SAP HANA developer edition
In addition, CloudShare enables developers to collaborate with other developers and colleagues, backup their work and when ready, deploy to production.
Check out this quick comparison of an on-premise installation of SAP HANA and a cloud-based SAP HANA environment:
