SAP Business One Web Client is available for both MS SQL and SAP HANA versions, starting in version 10.

Please note that Web Client does not include any customization or automation you might be using on the Desktop client. Web Client has limited functionality and SAP adds more functionality to it with every new release. Based on your role, the tasks you perform in the system and your interaction with SAP, Web Client might be right for you but you might need to perform specific activities on the Desktop client.
