HP has introduced the HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA, a system that allows organisations to analyse big data and unlock real-time insight without a significant upfront capital investment. The HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA bundles the SAP HANA software license, hardware and ongoing management into a complete system provided in a cost-effective, as-a-service model. The as-a-service model allows clients to simply pay a monthly subscription fee for the total solution. The new system runs in an HP Managed Cloud environment, either as a Managed Virtual Private Cloud or a Managed Private Cloud, within a regionalized HP enterprise-class data center facility. It is powered by the SAP certified, HP AppSystem for SAP HANA. Additionally, it is enabled by the HP Migration Factory for SAP HANA to provide best-in-class migration. These migration services ensure HP will plan, migrate, validate, secure and deliver the 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 successfully design, build, integrate and run SAP systems globally.
