Spotlight: SAP HANA Cloud welcomes a trio of stellar services (ASE, SRS, IQ)

As part of SAP’s commitment to extending the intelligent enterprise to the cloud, three new powerful tools have just launched as services in SAP HANA Cloud this week:

  • SAP HANA Cloud, adaptive server enterprise – Provides extreme online transaction processing in addition to the real-time analytical capabilities offered in SAP HANA Cloud
  • SAP HANA Cloud, adaptive server enterprise replication – Provides all of the core SAP Replication Server technologies for data replication
  • New IQ component in SAP HANA Cloud, data lake Provides high-performance analysis for petabyte volumes of relational data

And for customers already using the on-premise versions of these powerful solutions (you’d know them informally as ASE, SRS, and IQ), help is available to migrate or extend your systems to the new cloud versions.

Where can I find docs for these services on the Help Portal?

This table should help:


What you’re interested in… Help Portal product page
Service layer documentation for SAP HANA Cloud SAP HANA Cloud
Database layer documentation for SAP HANA Cloud. This is the database instance you can provision in SAP HANA Cloud. SAP HANA Cloud, SAP HANA database
Data lake documentation. See version QRC 01/2021 for the newly added IQ component SAP HANA Cloud, data lake
Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) Cloud documentation SAP HANA Cloud, adaptive server enterprise
Adaptive Server Enterprise replication documentation SAP HANA Cloud, adaptive server enterprise replication


What other forms of learning are available for these new services?

Besides the product documentation listed above, you can find lots of excellent resources to help you in the style of learning that you prefer. This list should help:


A quick note about service names in SAP HANA Cloud

You may have noticed already, but service names in SAP HANA Cloud now adhere to a strict form that may take some getting used to.

Firstly, full names are prefixed with “SAP HANA Cloud,” (notice the comma in there?). Secondly, you’ll notice that the service name part is in lower case; for example, SAP HANA Cloud, data lake.

In introductory paragraphs in the documentation where we typically refer to services by their full names, these naming conventions may slow down your reading comprehension until you get used to them. However, in non-introductory paragraphs, we use the shortened form of the name (e.g., ‘data lake’), which you’ll find much easier to read.

Okay, with that explained… have a cloudy day!

      Thanks so much for this nice blog. Is there a trial account for the Adaptive Server Enterprise and the Replication Server? I know about the HANA Cloud trial account, but cannot find the other HANA Cloud services in the trial version.

      Hi Anja,

      At this time, the ASE and SRS components of SAP HANA Cloud are not part of the trial. We hope to launch them later this year for trial users.

      Currently, you can use the SAP HANA database and the data lake as part of the SAP HANA Cloud trial.

      Hi Anja-Katja,

      Thanks for your comment, and Yes to what Helena said.

      I also spoke with product management and they offered this insight, in case it's helpful to you: "Unfortunately the ASE and Replication Server services are not available on the HANA Cloud trial landscapes, and won’t be until Q4 at the earliest. If you have an account executive, please talk to them and see if they can make arrangements for you."
