Revise based on new architecutreLet’s start with a high-level overview on the SAP HANA Cloud Connectivity service. There is the on-demand side, the data centers operated by SAP Cloud, on the upper part of the picture. On the lower part you can see the customer network, i.e. the on-premise side. So at the top we have the SAP hosted platform, at the bottom we have the customer, and in between there is the Internet. In the cloud, SAP HANA Cloud , the Java-based Platform-as-a-Service is running, while on the customer side there are all types of customer backends, like a SAP ERP system, NetWeaver Gateway, CRM systems, Enterprise Portal, or other non-SAP systems. The question is how you can provide an on-demand application running on Neo which makes use of the existing customer system, and by this allows to leverage the made investments on the on-premise side to new on-demand applications? This is where the Neo Connectivity Service comes into play: SAP HANA Cloud provides the SAP Cloud Connector as the connectivity component on the on-premise side which allows to connect to SAP HANA Cloud on the cloud via a point-to-point SSL tunnel. On the on-demand side, there is the SAP Cloud Connector On-Demand as counterpart to the on-premise component, but this is completely transparent for a consumer (it is operated by Neo in the cloud). Right now, this infrastructure is used for SAP HANA Cloud only, however it is the goal to extend the use case as following: The SAP Cloud Connector On-Demand should serve as single exit point for all SAP On-Demand applications, while the SAP Cloud Connector serves as single entry point to all customer backend systems. This means that we want to extend the usage of the Neo Connectivity service also for other SaaS or PaaS offerings hosted in the SAP data centers. The Neo connectivity service provides API which can be used by the applications to make calls to on-premise systems. This API is the destination API. It makes an HTTPS call to the SAP Cloud Connector On-Demand, where it is sent via the SSL tunnel to the SAP Cloud Connector on the customer side. Here, additional checks like whether the current request is allowed to access the backend are performed. If the tests succeed, the request is forwarded via HTTPS to the targeted backend system.
