Productive Instance / HANA XS Database partitioning in HCP

My HCP account has 32GB of HANA XS Database System / Productive Instance. The question is, if a need arises (say DEV, QA, PROD environment creation), is it possible to split the current database into multiple databases of different sizes ? Currently i see that for ASE database creation, the size option is shown during creation. Would like to know if the same is possible for HANA XS databases in HCP. Also, i see that there is no direct method to delete the database and creating a fresh one.

In a single dedicated HANA you may want to create schemas for DEV,QA and PRD. If that doesn't work going the MDC route is another option where you create DB containers for these environments.

Thanks Pankaj Kumar !
But MDC is not supported for HCP Production accounts yet right? I see them in trial accounts. Is there any way to procure the same for Production ?


You are correct that MDC is still in beta so no way to use them in production. IF you want to use MDC in HCP you will have to wait for GA.
