HP introduces SAP HANA based Cloud service

The service will initially be rolled out in Australia and New Zealand

Hewlett-Packard has introduced a Cloud service around SAP's HANA in-memory database, targeting customers who want to analyze big data.

Called HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA, it will be available worldwide with the initial rollout in Australia and New Zealand, HP said late Sunday.

The service runs in an HP managed Cloud environment, as a managed virtual private Cloud or a managed private Cloud, within a regionalized, enterprise-class HP datacentre facility, the company said. It is powered by HP AppSystem for SAP HANA which is SAP certified, and allows customers to benefit from in-memory computing technology and process large quantities of data in the main memory of the server to provide quicker results from analysis and transactions.

The service combines the SAP HANA software license along with hardware and ongoing management, and will be offered for a monthly subscription fee. The pricing of the service will vary depending on the needs of the client, HP said.

HP is also offering migration and other services for customers moving to SAP's HANA platform. The company's Enterprise Services business is offering Migration Factory for SAP HANA to support clients who choose to fully or partially move to SAP HANA.

The new service is part of SAP's HANA Enterprise Cloud strategy to offer mission-critical end-to-end managed cloud services to its customers, both directly and through partners, SAP said. HANA Enterprise Cloud, a new service unveiled in May, lets customers run their SAP Business Suite, CRM (customer relationship management) and Business Warehouse software, which are typically deployed on-premises, in a Cloud environment.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
