Licensing

/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/1fig_441201.png

Figure 1: Source: SAP

NUL means Named user license which means you have rights for Lumira Server

Lumira Server means you need HANA

Concurrent license can also use this with BI4 suite at no additional charge

Full use license with HANA has no restrictions

LREA – Limited runtime means you can use only Lumira Server which is cheaper, but you can’t run BW on it

For the future they are looking at virtualized HANA instance as well

    Thank you, Tammy, for a very useful overview of SAP Lumira Server.

    I have a question – will and how it be possible to consume SAP Lumira data sets (for example created from Universes) and stories via BI 4 BI Launchpad if SAP HANA is not included in the Analytics landscape. After reading both parts I have noticed that BI 4 will be integrated with SAP Lumira Server which can be deployed in SAP HANA only.

    Thanks.

      Donatas – thank you for reading and commenting.

      I don’t think it is possible to do what you are asking without HANA.  See the last screen shot (an important slide).

      Also for reference Ashish posted his webcast slides from this webinar yesterday at SAP Lumira Cloud and Server > please check that out for more information.

    Tammy,

    Great post with a lot of points I’ve been waiting to see in formal material.

    It seems that even if we are in a 2004 BW stationwagon that SAP keeps under maintenance, if we’d like to drive on any new roads or see new attractions, it’s going to require a HANA vehicle to get there.  (I’m looking at BPC Unified when saying that, as well as a lot of what’s in BW 7.4…)

    Pretty sly way to twist an existing customer’s arm over time.  😉
