SAP HANA, Express Edition, Now More Digitally Accessible Than Ever

SAP SE  announced that developers using the free express edition of SAP HANA can expand their memory use by purchasing a low-cost license from the SAP® Store with their credit card. Developers can purchase a 6-month or 12-month term license to expand applications with up to 64 GB, 96 GB or 128 GB of memory use. Additional memory enables developers to crunch larger data sets and perform advanced analytical processing against a wide variety of data types including text, spatial or graph with greater ease to deliver fresh insights via next-generation applications.

“The goal of the SAP Store is to allow anybody to purchase and consume SAP and third-party offerings with minimal human interaction via a streamlined, digital check-out process,” said Madhur Aggarwal, general manager, SAP Digital Commerce. “SAP HANA, express edition, fits perfectly with this mission. Customers can now access and purchase additional processing power quickly and easily from without interrupting their digital experience — with just a credit card — starting at €400 per month.”

Since its launch in September 2016, thousands of developers have registered for SAP HANA, express edition, which can be downloaded to laptops or personal computers, or be deployed in the cloud for free from the SAP developer community to build and deploy production applications with a limit of 32 GB memory use. A term license for additional memory use can be applied on premise or in the cloud without requiring any change to an application or the underlying environment.

Today, SAP also announced that SAP HANA, express edition, is available from Google Cloud Launcher. The software is available to developers for free for building applications with a 32 GB memory-use limit. If additional memory use is desired, developers can purchase a term license from SAP Store that can be applied to SAP HANA, express edition, on Google Cloud Platform. Google Compute Engine provides multiple machine types, enabling developers to start small and grow flexibly as needed.
