SAP HANA Cloud, data lake

SAP HANA Cloud, data lake is an SAP HANA Cloud component composed of data lake IQ – which provides high-performance analysis for petabyte volumes of relational data – and data lake Files – which provides managed access to structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data stored as files. SAP HANA Cloud, data lake is fully integrated, sharing common security and tooling with all HANA Cloud components.

SAP HANA Cloud was created with four key characteristics in mind: unlimited, trusted, simple, and open.


SAP HANA Cloud provides a single place to access, store, and process all enterprise data in real time. It is a cloud-native platform that offers the power and performance of SAP HANA with full capabilities to manage data storage, virtualization, and run powerful applications.


SAP HANA Cloud provides all of the advanced SAP HANA technologies for multi-model data processing in- memory or on disk. You can benefit from cloud qualities such as automatic software updates, elasticity, and low total cost of ownership by using SAP HANA Cloud either as a stand-alone solution or as an extension to your existing on-premise environment.


Using SAP HANA Cloud, you can set up and manage SAP HANA databases and bind them to applications running on SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) or elsewhere. You can access SAP HANA databases using a variety of languages and interfaces, as well as build applications and models using tools provided with SAP HANA Cloud. Furthermore, SAP HANA Cloud helps you to manage where and how data is stored and accessed, depending on performance needs.
