Introduction to SAP HANA developer edition

As its name implies, SAP HANA developer edition is for developers. In contrast to SAP HANA One, SAP HANA developer edition cannot be used as commercial and productive. We can use it for development and testing. We can access SAP HANA developer edition from four SAP cloud partners as follows.

1. CloudShare

2. Amazon Web Services (AWS)

3. KT ucloud biz

4. SmartCloudPT

(Update: Now we can also get SAP HANA developer edition from Microsoft Azure Cloud. So there are five SAP cloud partners which provide SAP HANA developer edition.)

Another difference between SAP HANA developer edition and SAP HANA One is that for SAP HANA developer edition, you only pay cloud providers the money you use the infrastructure (the instance) hourly or monthly. But for SAP HANA One, you pay not only for using the infrastructure but for SAP HANA license as well.

In this tutorial, we will introduce the 30-day free trial of SAP HANA developer edition on CloudShare which means you can use SAP HANA developer edition on CloudShare totally free in the first 30 days. SAP will pay the money for you. After 30 days, you can continue using it and start to pay or you can just stop using it. It's up to you. Now, let's start!
