SAP HANA, express edition 2.0, SPS 03 rev 35 is ready to download.
I’m pleased to announce that the latest revision for SAP HANA, express edition is available for download – in time for the latest OpenSAP course, which starts next week.
The release notes can be found here, as always.
This is a highly anticipated release, as it is the first revision to support the new CAP model – which Lucia Subatin covers here.
The VM and Binary images are available for download from here, and the various cloud images on the Google Cloud, AWS and Azure will be updated shortly. In the meantime, Lucia’s blog covers how you can upgrade your cloud instances to the latest version too.
As always, thank you to the SAP Mentors, partners and customers providing us with feedback and input. For new users – you can ask questions and interact with experts here
Be sure to review the SAP HANA, express edition page for the latest content, supporting documentation and tutorials.
What are the limitations of express, is it the or features or commercial usage?
The limits are documented on here. To summarize – this is the regular HANA software, restricted to 32GB of RAM for HANA usage.
There are some additional restrictions in the EULA. To summarize the restrictions loosely – running SAP applications (such as ERP, BW, CRM) on SAP HANA, express edition is not allowed.
Now, licensing is best discussed with a pricing and licensing expert – and you can always try and email the Customer Interaction Center, who will get you in touch with an expert.
