My wife and I have gone to great lengths to teach our daughters the value of delayed gratification. The lesson seems to have taken hold—neither one has gone bankrupt yet.
Even given all the positive attributes and outcomes associated with delayed gratification, sometimes you just want it now – like this scene, with Veruca Salt, in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. As it turns out, there are all kinds of things that you can get now. Check out 17 Things Under $10 You’ll Want To Buy On Amazon Right Now: Korean honey butter chips? A pound of bobby pins?

Immediate need and/or desire can also explain why some companies look to the cloud. When a large retailer decided to migrate their numerous SAP applications to multiple SAP HANA instances, they went from 100% on premises to a hybrid cloud approach. That way they’re able to rapidly reap the benefits of SAP HANA on NetApp, on their premises and in the cloud.
To make your trip to the cloud easier and faster, NetApp offers a broad portfolio of cloud services tailored for SAP HANA and S/4HANA. On a more granular note, a common task for SAP Basis admins is creating system copies of SAP HANA. It’s not uncommon to need to create a dozen or more system copies for every production system. Each system copy can take hours (days?) to complete, affecting the ability to meet changing customer demand. Check out how to Speed Up Your SAP HANA System Copies Using Azure NetApp® Files and accelerate your time to production.
