SAP is a cloud company driven by SAP HANA in-memory technology. We have 110 million cloud subscribers and 41 state-of-the-art data centres around the world. We offer cloud apps (SaaS) for all lines of business, a market-leading cloud platform (PaaS) and flexible on-demand infrastructure (IaaS). You can rely on proven enterprise cloud security and hosting services and choose from a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment.
With a public cloud, services are delivered to customers over a network that's open for public usage. Public clouds offer efficiency and affordability and are often multi-tenant meaning the provider runs your service in a shared environment.
With a private cloud, services are maintained on a private network protected by a firewall. You can build a private cloud within your own data centre or subscribe to one hosted by a vendor. Private clouds offer the most security and control.
A hybrid cloud is a composition of two or more clouds often from multiple providers. Hybrid clouds offer variety, so you can pick and choose which aspects of your business to include in a hybrid landscape, a build of both cloud and on-premise.
