For a more recent version of this blog, see

SAP HANA Academy

For those new to sizing SAP HANA and the Quick Sizer tool, we have just added a new video tutorial on the topic. It is part of the playlist SAP HANA Installations – SPS 08 on YouTube.

SAP Notes

As you have seen in the video, there is little to no information about SAP HANA Sizing in the publicly available documentation for SAP HANA on the SAP Help portal.

For information, you need to consult SAP Notes

      Hi Andy,

      I have updated the blog with the relevant SAP Notes, for reference. Thanks for the suggestion.

      Of course, the video is only an introduction to the topic. As sizing SAP HANA is only referenced - but not addressed - in the Master Guide we thought this could be helpful.

      Although helpful, the SAP Notes with the attached PowerPoint presentations are a bit harder to digest as introduction.

      We may add a next level tutorial and do a deep dive on the topic and show how to use the ABAP reports on a Suite or BW system.

      Hi Denys,

      now that you give the context it makes sense, if I may suggest, if this will become a series of articles going deeper and deeper into the subject then it might be worth to modify the title to reflect that it's a series of tutorials and especially as it is authored by the Experts from SAP.

      Best regards and nice weekend,
