Creating a CloudShare Team Labs Environment with SAP HANA, SAP Data Services and Hortonworks Hadoop

BIG DATA AND IN-MEMORY DATABASE

Nowadays when you are looking for Big Data techniques you get in touch with Hadoop. If you are googling for an In-Memory Database you will find SAP HANA. These are two actual topics which are on top of the Gartner Hype Cycle of Emerging Technologies (Gartner, 2014).

That’s one of the reason why we from IT-Logix wanted to create a test environment which all of our consultants can access easily. But technologies like SAP HANA needs lots of HDD space, let alone of memory. The minimum memory requirement even just for testing SAP HANA is 24 GB (SAP, 2014).  As we don’t need a production system which is always up and running we were looking for a cheaper solution compared to buying new hardware and host the new test system on premise.
