SAP HANA 2.0 Revision Strategy

With the announcement of the next generation of the in-memory platform SAP HANA we have changed the Release and Maintenance Strategy:

  • New capabilities are introduced twice a year, every time a new SAP HANA Support Package Stack (SPS) is released.
    This happens normally beginning of April and end of July.
  • SAP is providing bug fixes and security patches for every SPS between RTC of the next and the first subsequent SPS.
  • We recommend that maintenance timelines and project go live dates are adjusted to this release schedule.
  • Customer can upgrade to any available Revision of a new SPS at any point in time.
  • Starting with SAP HANA 2.0 SPS00, SAP will not explicitly declare a DSP anymore.
  • DSP status is automatically given with RTC of a new SPS.

See SAP Note 2378962 for detailedĀ information and read the revision strategy document.

For customers running earlier versions please see SAP Note 2021789 for details on the Revision and Maintenance Strategy for SAP HANA 1.0

      Where can I find a date on when HANA 2.0 SPS 04 Revision 45 will be released?

      I need this as restore of a SPS 03 backup is only supported from Revision 45 šŸ™Ā  (note 1948334)

      I can't find it on

      Hi Willem,

      we do not publish dates for SAP HANA Revisions but as to what I can say, Rev45 is planned for mid of December.

      Hope this helps.

      Kind Regards,
