Two Versions of SAP System on the Cloud

When you provisioning SAP AS ABAP Developer Edition on the cloud (such as Azure or AWS), there are two versions for you to pick:

  1. SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP and SAP BW 7.5 SP01 on SAP HANA SP10 [Developer Edition] — Link to SAP CAL | Link to manual
  2. SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP and SAP BW 7.50 SP02 on ASE [Developer Edition] — Link to SAP CAL | Link to manual

Both versions (i.e. HANA and ASE) have different purposes as I can see now:

  • HANA one is for those who want to try HANA DB like CDS, Native HANA Objects, etc.
  • ASE one is for those who want to try cloud integration with SCP (I’ve tried to setup SCC on HANA one but it didn’t work)
  • ASE is also available for local installation (on VirtualBox)

Choose the one that fit your need or both if you can afford them. :)
