All You Need to Know About SAP HANA Community Cloud

What is a Community Cloud?

The term ‘community cloud’ specifies that the design of the cloud is exactly as per the norms and standards of a particular community.  Community clouds are nothing but the hybrid forms which are particularly built for a niche and specific target group. All of these communities are working on similar standards and hence they have matching requirements. They need to work together to achieve their business goals.

Community clouds are tailor-made for organizations and businesses which work on common projects, researches, or applications and so they need a central cloud computing system. A central community cloud helps in creating, managing and implementing such projects, irrespective of the solutions which they rent from the service providers.

The cloud consumers are the members of the community who share the responsibility of cloud definition and evolution.

The community membership not always guarantees the access or control of all the IT resources. The outside parties can get access only if the community allows them.
