SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere, on-demand edition 1.0 Support Package 3 » SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere, on-demand edition 1.0


Cloud introduction and terminology

The term cloud computing means offering computing as a service over a distributed network, typically the Internet. The cloud is a pool of shared resources such as hosts, database servers, and databases. The cloud provides data storage and access to end-users without them having to know the physical location of data, and without them having to install and run software on their local computer.

SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere, on-demand edition 1.0 is a data management solution that enables independent software vendors (ISVs) to take business applications to the cloud and offer software as a service (SaaS). ISVs can build, deploy, and manage large cloud applications. SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere, on-demand edition 1.0 offers the administrative ease of multi-tenant computing, while ensuring the security of full data isolation for ISV customers.
