SAP HANA with more cloud options

Since my last blog post on SAP's innovation spree about SAP HANA and then SAP HANA on AWS, SAP continues to further expand its strong application service portfolio by joining hands with more cloud vendors. After launching its HANA cloud services on Amazon Web Services (AWS), SAP now provides SAP HANA One Developer edition on KT ucloud, CloudShare and Portugal Telecom’s SmartCloudPT. And these service providers seems to be providing the SAP HANA as a Service (sounds interesting !!) even at lower price marks than AWS.

The detailed list of provided services and charges are available here: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-31722

But for a quick reference, a summary of cloud service offerings (taken from above mentioned link) are provided in below table:

Amazon provides a secure, scalable, and highly elastic cloud infrastructure for running SAP HANA.

Also,  very good comparison of pricing between SAP HANA appliance vs SAP HANA service on AWS cloud is made by Bill Ramos in his interesting blog post here.
This comparison is based on the fact that SAP HANA One Developer edition is provided FREE of charge by SAP for 1 month trial basis. So there are no charges for using SAP HANA on cloud, only the standard cloud usage charges applies.
