Express Edition

SAP HANA, express edition has its own Feature Scope Description document. Most of the standard services are included but obviously not the functionality that would make little sense for a developer edition, like distributed systems (32 GB memory restriction) and dynamic tiering (separate installation on an additional host).

    With SAP HANA 2.0 SP02 there was an edition of SAP HANA called “base edition”  It seems that this edition is no longer available and was replaced with the “standard edition” in SAP HANA 2.0 SP03.  Is this a correction assumption?  SAP unfortunately does a horrible job providing a roadmap through the constant product munging and it is not possible to access the Feature Scope Description for any HANA version earlier than 2.0 SP03.  Another question, if I am running HANA 2.0 in the cloud currently, I must be using the “standard edition”?

    Editions and options primarily serve a licensing purpose and for this reason names and content change over time.

    The SAP HANA service comes in two editions:

    My colleague Philip just recorded a number of tutorial videos about DBaaS/HaaS, should you be interested:
