SAP is looking to launch its HANA database suite on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform, as the company prepares what it says will be the largest ever single deployment for the system.
The company said that it would be offering the HANA platform on the Amazon cloud service as HANA One. The database platform will be available to users as a web-provisioned option with a starting price of $0.99 per hour.
The service will be offered on AWS in instances with RAM capacities as high as 60GB. Customers will be able to purchase and provision the instances through the AWS Marketplace portal.
The two firms hope that the service will attract the attention of enterprises and developers looking for a fast, affordable way to run HANA applications.
"There are so many great ideas that have been stranded on enterprises' whiteboards because teams cannot get the requisite capital, people resources or services provisioned in a reasonable time frame," said AWS senior vice president Andy Jassy.
"The combination of in-memory transactional and analytical data processing of SAP HANA One with AWS's immediately accessible, no capital expenditure, pay-as-you-go, reliable infrastructure changes the possibilities for so many companies."
In addition to the AWS offering, SAP said that it would be launching its largest ever in-memory HANA capacity The database will be capable of scaling up to 100 nodes and holding one petabyte of data-in memory.
The company said that such a system would be able to hold data on some 1.2 trillion transaction records and execute queries in less than 0.50 seconds.
