The HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA bundles the SAP HANA software license along with hardware and ongoing management, available on a monthly subscription basis.
The new product runs in an HP Managed Cloud environment, either as a managed virtual private cloud or a managed private cloud, within a regionalized, enterprise-class HP data center facility. It is powered by the SAP-certified HP AppSystem for SAP HANA.
HP will plan, migrate, validate, secure and deliver clients' mission-critical data onto the SAP HANA platform. All migration services are performed under SAP-certified methodology and validated with HP's global SAP certifications to design, build, integrate and run SAP systems globally.
HP also has established a global Migration Factory for SAP HANA to support clients who choose to fully or partially move to SAP HANA, along with providing the transformational services they require to best implement SAP HANA capabilities in their business.
Delivered through HP Enterprise Services' globally distributed Industrialized Delivery Centers, the HP Migration Factory for SAP HANA will leverage HP's deep implementation and management capabilities for SAP solutions and is supported by senior consultants, data scientists and technology experts in HP's global Centers of Excellence for SAP.
The HP's As-a-Service Solution is one of SAP's managed cloud-as-a-service (MCaaS). The solution will be available in Asia Pacific and Japan with initial rollout in Australia and New Zealand.
