Type of databases within HCP Enterprise


a few questions:

1. HCP enterprise account comes with a HANA XS Database. I'm not sure if this is a so called System Database or a Database that can be used productively.

2. From HCP trial i know the way of creating a MDC database. Is there a way to see what kind of database the one in the HCP enterprise account is?

3. Why is there to way to create tenant databases via the SAP HANA Cockpit to create a tenant database, even if this is described as possible in many tutorials. I simply dont have the tile where i can manange tenant databases, not even with the necessary authorizations.

Thanks in advance and greetings

    Hello Johannes,

    Please check the respective documentation at:

    SAP HANA / SAP ASE Service

    "Use Case
    You want to use an SAP HANA database in a subaccount that belongs to an enterprise account.

    You can use an SAP HANA database in productive mode.
    The SAP HANA database provides you with a database reserved for your exclusive use, enabling you to develop with SAP HANA as with an on-premise system. You have full control of user management and can use a range of tools.
    For more information, see Using a Productive SAP HANA Database System."

    Best regards
