After announcing the general availability of the Cloud Foundry environment in SAP Cloud Platform at SAPPHIRE NOW in mid-May, the SAP Cloud Platform team is now gearing up for tons of activities at the upcoming Cloud Foundry Summit, June 13 – 15 in Santa Clara, California.
The North American Cloud Foundry developer and user community gathers at this annual event to discuss cool innovations, interesting new use cases, and visionary ideas for further collaborations. SAP speakers are delivering 17 sessions in the Polyglot In-Memory track that focus on how SAP is using and contributing to the Cloud Foundry technology. To see the scheduled SAP sessions, go to the event schedule, then select the ‘Polyglot In-Memory’ option under the ‘Filter By Type’ section on the right side of the page.
Here is a brief explanation of the Polyglot In-Memory track.
In-Memory — With its groundbreaking in-memory technology, SAP has revolutionized how enterprise applications and solutions can gain unprecedented real-time processing speed while reducing the data foot-print significantly. SAP has now made the latest release of the very same powerful in-memory database engine, HANA 2, available for Cloud Foundry application developers. In addition, the popular open source options for data management like MongoDB and PostgreSQL, along with enterprise support for them, are included in the SAP Cloud Platform.
Applications — As the largest provider of applications in over 25 industries, SAP has a lot to share in regards to providing enterprise-grade PaaS with rich technical capabilities and business services. In fact, the main contributions from SAP to the Cloud Foundry community projects are in the area of adding enterprise qualities to the CF stack such as secure communication among the platform components, comprehensive life cycle management of backing services, scalability of application instances, and automated sleeping of idling instances.
