Amazon Web Services

Be it legacy or modern applications, AWS, offers wide variety of services enabling customers to develop and deploy their critical business web, mobile or containerized applications over the global AWS infrastructure that is super scalable, reliable and secured (of course you will need to ensure your application are designed properly to enjoy all these).

SAP Cloud Platform

SAP Cloud Platform is great for the company that needs a one-stop-shop for their complete e2e solution. No more having to maintain multiple applications separately. This is good for the company that needs to unify their solutions under one umbrella and allow the seamless bi-directional flow of data from start to finish. SAP Cloud Platform is not for everyone. Those smaller companies that may not have the budget or may not have the complexity of applications may not benefit as much as larger companies with a much larger footprint.

Pros

Amazon Web Services

  • The development and administration tools work well, including a consistent API and adequate management console. In terms of business process, it provided an effective "escape valve" for new product development that would have been much more onerous to deploy if we had to provision physical hardware and arrange for associated IT resources.

SAP Cloud Platform

  • With the Cloud platform, we do not have to worry about the maintenance of the server.
  • The effort put in with the technical team and business for testing each new upgrade related to a product.
  • Feasibility to have our own custom apps.

Cons

Amazon Web Services

  • AWS has a record of occasional severe outages, which has a cascading effect on the large number of high-profile services that now run on its infrastructure. Despite the spectacular nature of these outages, it is unlikely that a self-managed data center would achieve significantly better uptime.
  • It is also the case that AWS outages can be mitigated with effective use of multiple deployment 'zones' and regions. This is something that any mission-critical application should be doing anyway as part of disaster recovery preparations.

  • Performance issues need to be addressed.
  • The login page has no option for corporate branding.

The management console is the weak part of the service in my experience. It is adequate but slow.

Performance

Amazon Web Services

AWS does not provide the raw performance that you can get by building your own custom infrastructure. However, it is often the case that the benefits of specialized, high-performance hardware do not necessarily outweigh the significant extra cost and risk. Performance as perceived by the user is very different from raw throughput.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services is the market leader for all cloud deployments. Though Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform are making a strong showing trying to dethrone the champion, the large feature set, strong Infrastructure as Code (IaC) support and continuous product releases are currently keeping AWS at the top for the foreseeable future.

SCP has the SAP services and technologies readily available, and easily accessible through the cloud.

Return on Investment

Amazon Web Services

  • AWS gave us the flexibility of having one to thousands of servers from day one.
  • We did not have to invest in the servers from day one and we had a saving of 40%.
  • As AWS is expensive compared to its competition, our opex grew higher than the companies using other services from AWS competitors.

  • Using SCP allowed us to decommission our old Fiori Gateway environment, and have the application easily accessible through the internet.
