Manage Services

In this video tutorial, we navigate from the Overall Database Status card to the Manage Services view and explain the information displayed and what actions can be performed from this view (app). We also briefly compare the view with the predecessor of HANA Cloud, the SAP HANA Service, and with the on-premise environment. Finally, we show how the same information can be obtained using SQL and the Database Explorer Statement Library.

What’s New (and Changed)?

The following services are not (yet) included in SAP HANA Cloud

  • Docstore, preprocessor, and scriptserver

What’s New (and Changed)?

The following functionality is not included in the SAP HANA cockpit for SAP HANA Cloud

Database Backups

In this video tutorial about database backups for SAP HANA Cloud with SAP HANA cockpit, we take a look at the card and apps. Spoiler alert. It is FYI.

What’s New (and Changed)?

Compared to the SAP HANA cockpit for SAP HANA platform (on-premise) there are no changes for the Database Backup user interface (SAP HANA cockpit) but backup is configured as a restricted feature for the SAP HANA Cloud H00 tenant database and hence not configurable. It is part of the managed service.

For more information and resources, see the blog post

System Configuration

In this video tutorial about system configuration for SAP HANA Cloud with SAP HANA cockpit, we take a look at the System Configuration app.

What’s New (and Changed)?

System configuration (and app) work the same as with SAP HANA systems on-premise. The biggest difference is that SAP HANA Cloud is a tenant database and so the number of parameters available for configuration is limited.
