WALLDORF — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced advancements to the SAP Vora solution that will simplify deployment on a public cloud and increase flexibility when migrating between cloud, on-premise and hybrid deployment models.
SAP Vora simplifies deployment on public cloud with the use of Kubernetes
SAP Vora enables highly scalable computing of Big Data for on-premise and cloud-based data lakes
SAP Data Network offers business scenarios as a service using SAP Vora
Additionally, the live customer cloud service on SAP Data Network can now use the distributed computing capabilities SAP Vora offers to efficiently process large data volumes and reveal actionable business insights in near real time
“We are bringing together data transformation and business transformation on the same platform, uniting structured data and computed unstructured data to change the way businesses plan, scale and innovate,” said Greg McStravick, president of SAP Database and Data Management.
As more organizations move Big Data workloads to the cloud for increased flexibility and scalability, the new version of SAP Vora adopts containers to deliver SAP Vora as a container and leverages Kubernetes for simplified deployment and cluster management on public cloud infrastructure offerings. SAP Vora provides customers with the flexibility to choose among cloud, on-premise and hybrid deployment models, and they can migrate between these options easily and with minimal disruption.
SAP Vora is planned to support Azure Data Lake, hosted in Microsoft’s public cloud Azure. SAP Vora can load and distribute data files stored in Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service). Other key features introduced in this latest release are an enhanced monitoring framework, support for Apache Spark2.x and optimizations for connectivity with the SAP HANA platform.

The live customer cloud service on SAP Data Network combines expertise in Big Data, machine learning and analytics to deliver customers an end-to-end portfolio for data monetization as a ready-to-consume cloud service. Any customer implementation of the live customer cloud service, including at the U.S. division of Schindler Elevator Corporation, can benefit from SAP Vora 2.0 as it will be one of the service’s foundational components.
