The SAP HANA Cloud Platform is an in-memory Platform as a Service (PaaS) product.
Independent software vendors (ISVs), startups and developers can use SAP HANA to create and test HANA-based cloud applications. It can also be used to extend cloud and on-premises software. Payment is based on a subscription model.
The SAP HANA Cloud Platform should not be confused with the similarly named HANA Enterprise Cloud.
