Two years ago, we posted our first videos about running SAP HANA, express edition in the SAP Cloud Appliance Library (CAL):

At the time, the only available cloud provider for CAL was Amazon Web Services (AWS) and SAP HANA 1.0 SPS 12 was the latest release for the express edition.

Today, the SAP HANA, express edition solution in CAL is available for all three major cloud provider vendors and, of course, running the latest and greatest SAP HANA revision.

For this reason, we have updated our video tutorial to include Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure to show you what's new and what's changed.
