Assign an Elastic IP Address

The Road to SAP HANA & Beyond . . .

The Beginning!

I first heard about HANA when I was working with SAP in 2008 & then Around 2012, one of my Friends called me from BayArea to join his startup that is doing some work on SAP HANA, SAP’s in-memory database. I just remember it as a Database back then.

Then I heard about OpenSAP and I started taking courses on SAP HANA. I also took a course by Vishal Sikka, then SAP CTO.

Back then there was no such thing as S/4 HANA & many customers were just starting to hear about what HANA can accomplish for them.
