To make it easier to find the right video tutorial for SAP HANA Installations and Updates, we have recently updated the playlists and video metadata.

Over the years - the first video was recorded for release SPS05 from May, 2013 -, different titles, tags, and descriptions had been used, which made search results not always consistent. We have cleaned this up and trust this will provide you with an easier search experience.


YouTube Playlists

For the full list of all the video recorded on this topic, including archived software and What's New updates, you can view the "master" playlist.

If you are only interested in the videos for a particular (available) release, you can view one of the release-specific playlist:

Blogs and Github

For more information about installing and updating SAP HANA, and the latest features, see the blog post series on this site:

For those of you who prefer Github, we also maintain an up-to-date list on our site:

Archived, Now What?

Not every SAP HANA release is still available for download, in fact, most have been archived. For the latest information on this topic, see the Product Availability Matrix on the SAP Support Portal.

When a release is archived, you will find this tagged in the title of the video.

The "installation experience" of SAP HANA has been almost unchanged since the last couple of years, which has made us decide not to start removing older videos. For example, for SPS 11, we recorded a number of videos for SAP HANA studio about installation on macOS, using an update site, or as a plugin. SPS 11 is no longer available but  the videos still apply if you are on SPS 12, 01 or 02. As Studio is deprecated in the current release, it would not make sense to remake a recording.

In other words, to also serve our viewers on older releases, we have kept the videos in the master playlist sorted on date of publication (newest). Should you not be interested in older versions, just go directly to the playlist for your release.

Additionally, we have added a card to guide you the "master" playlist so you can easily locate a more recent video on this topic.


Do not hesitate to post your comments with suggestions about how we can further improve accessibility and ease-of-use. Thanks.
