Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon RDS

RDS is well suited if:
  1. You have a modest budget. If I were completely bootstrapped and not married to AWS, I might look elsewhere.
  2. You need a speedy, secure transactional, do-it-all database.
  3. You need the ability to scale seamlessly.

SAP HANA

SAP HANA has been incredibly helpful in moving forward with real-time BW reporting. Users no longer need to wait for the analytics they need but are able to generate their reporting instantly. In addition, within the finance module, it has allowed our users to run multiple processes at once shortening the time to complete their business activities, especially during the close cycle.

Cons

Amazon RDS

  • You do have a lack of control when it comes to the minutiae of database management. Replication topology, SUPER privilege, direct access to data directories and logs are all restricted with RDS making it harder for the experienced RDS sysadmin to run their system.
  • Availability reduced in some ways to make other options easier. The only feasible method is multi-AZ deployment for replication and planned downtime makes it hard to keep a running application at times
  • Lack of access to the professional tools of RDS systems means that you have reduced insight into how your system is performing.

  • More training materials on modules would be a good thing.
  • Reports get executed slowly, especially on mobile.
  • It is a bit expensive compared to other similar tools in the market.

SAP HANA 6.2
Based on 5 answers
At this moment we are not focusing on SAP, however would love to in the future. This is primarily because of our limited ability to generate more revenue to fund for SAP partnerships and products. Our initial tryst with SAP Partneredge open ecosystem didn't go as planned and we have shelved that for now. Hope we can revive in the future

Alternatives Considered

Amazon RDS

We mainly used RDS because our infrastructure was already up and running on AWS so the networking between the systems was quite easy to set up and manage. For our Azure infrastructure, we used their SQL database option instead for the same reasons. If AWS made it easier to use the professional tools provided with many SQL suites we would definitely prefer them over the competition, but until that day we will keep our RDS instances platform-specific.

Return on Investment

Amazon RDS

  • Very positive. It has reduced our need to have IT Operations and DBA resources, and with Aurora we have been able to get better performance with less compute power required (that is, with a lower monthly spend).
