BO Cloud connection to on-premise HANA

Hello, I want to know what the best-practices are for establishing a secure live connection from BOC to on-premise HANA. I saw that there are two options:

  • 1.Using a proxy (sap webdispatcher or Apache)
  • 2.Using SAP Cloud Platform

Is it possible to use the second option by accessing the SAP Cloud Platform and then making a connection to the on-premise SAP Cloud Platform Connector which will route the connection to the HANA database? Or is this second option only used for HANA databases which are available in SAP Cloud Platform?

In my option this second option looks like the nicest way to establish the connection, without publishing the HANA database directly to the internet (which is option1).

A little bit of guidance or advice is welcome.

Kind Regards,

Niek Verhaar

Hi Niek,

You can connect HANA live using a new CORS connectivity (Cross-Origin Resource Sharing):

You don't need to copy anything. Live connections means that only your browser will connect to both networks:

- Internet Public: SAP BusinessObjects Cloud with the stories, calculation but no data stored

- Your network: HANA data

If you have SAP Cloud Platform you can copy data to it that you want to use and connect directly. You won't require reverse proxy as both, SAP BusinessObjects Cloud and SAP Cloud Platform can see each other and you can use the SAP HANA Cloud Platform connection when creating a model.
