Cloud or on prem? With HPE GreenLake for SAP HANA, the answer is “yes”

 By Sean O’Connell

You know the trade-offs, right? We all got them drilled into our heads when the private/public cloud duality was introduced. You either choose the agility and affordability of a cloud-based solution or the security and data control of an on-premise approach.

I never like having just those two choices. Neither did you, probably. So I am happy to tell you that those trade-offs have just been blown out of the water, thanks to HPE GreenLake … and THAT makes the SAP HANA solution you want more accessible than ever.
