SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud

Tecxed delivers SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud which is a private cloud offering by SAP. It allows customers and partners to deploy SAP applications like SAP ERP, CRM, SAP BW etc. in their private cloud, which is fully managed and supported by SAP & Tecxed. SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud also supports custom specific HANA applications, including non-SAP centric ones.

SAP makes the HANA Enterprise Cloud available via data centers worldwide. HEC managed services include backups, patching, provisioning and upgrades, restore and recovery, infrastructure monitoring and event detection-all in a private cloud environment.

Customers can bring their own (already licensed) SAP applications into HEC or tap into subscription-based pricing on SAP software.


The primary characteristic of HEC is that it is a complete managed service by which SAP provides the infrastructure as well as the deployment and management of the applications.

In addition, customers benefit from SAP's deep expertise in SAP technologies and HANA. The data centers are run entirely by SAP team. Other benefits, include a reduction in IT management costs and the ability for customers to offload system upgrades to SAP.

How does the SAP Cloud Platform fit in to SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud?

SAP Cloud platform is a Platform-as-a-Service offered by SAP for customers and partners to develop and deliver cloud applications, extensions and solutions. SAP Cloud Platform is the PaaS layer of the HANA Enterprise Cloud solution. This enables customers and partners to extend functionality of their applications hosted in the HANA Enterprise Cloud and also build new applications. In this case applications built on SAP Cloud Platform are essentially running on SAP Hana Enterprise Cloud.
