SAP HANA Cloud Demo : Data Virtualization & Relational Data Lake with AWS & Azure services

SAP HANA Cloud is the next-gen DBaaS (runs on Kubernetes) replaces the existing SAP HANA service on SAP Cloud Platform. I have spent some time exploring some of it capabilities and would like to share with you a demo explaining some if its cool capabilities. I have kept it very simple for anyone to understand the basic concepts.

  • Provisioning/Scalability options
  • Data Virtualization
  • Relational Data Lake

We often deal with requirements where customer organizations have invested with hyperscaler storage services and hence I have prepared a demo where I show how to leverage these along with HANA Cloud.

To know more about SAP HANA Cloud, I would recommend you to go through this blog post “Getting Started with SAP HANA Cloud which will provide you a good overview with links to HANA Academies and tutorials to get started.

      Thanks for the demo, Murali. We will test the Azure and AWS options with our sandbox environment. Will see if we can also do the same with GCP (as BigQuery was an option indicated at the start of the demo.

      Kind regards, Glenn

      Hi Murli

      Can HANA Data lake serves as an alternative to Hadoop Data Lake?

      HANA Data Lake is a relational data lake. Though you can store unstructured data like videos & images - its strengths are on processing structured data(in the current version)

      Nice demo! Perhaps thinking to try with HANA Express for demo purposes! SDA works for HANA Express Edition, I believe.   Regards, Amit
