I'm with UShareSoft who builds a tool allowing users to:

- create appliance templates

- generate machine images to a wide variety of virtual or cloud formats

- publish those images to cloud

We are wondering whether SAP HCP has the possibility for users to publish machine images to their account, and, if yes:

- the image format(s) supported by SAP HCP

- the API available to publish those images to SAP HCP

Thanks in advance for your reply,

Best regards,


Alexandre Lefebvre, UShareSoft

No, HCP is SAP's PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) offering. What you are describing sounds more like IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) capabilities.

I'd suggest that you look for SAP Cloud Appliance Library ( where you could probably find more touch points with the use cases described.

Thanks Vlado for your feedback.

We'll go and take a look at SAP CAL.
