Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services is well suited for companies that don't want to have deal with physical infrastructure and want a high level of security and availability. In most cases Amazon Web Services is a great option for most, but may not be an option if you have met the tipping point of physical cost vs. Amazon Web Services cost. It may end up being a better option in the long run to manage the infrastructure yourself if the cost per hour of Amazon Web Services is greater than what you can provide if your level of availability is equal to or greater than Amazon Web Services.

SAP Cloud Platform

SAP Cloud Platform is best suited to an enterprise use-case that values rapid development and deployment, where the product is well suited to the capabilities offered by the platform.Though the platform offers an enticing suite of services, I would not recommend using the platform for only one of these services/APIs as there are likely simpler and cheaper alternatives. The true benefit of SAP Cloud Platform is combining several services.

Pros

  • 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.

  • Full-scale solution: from development to deployment, from software to device, SAP Cloud offers a comprehensive suite of applicable services
  • Powerful & scalable
  • Up-front about pricing

Cons

  • Some resources parameters needed and prerequisites are difficult to understand, even with services that have well-known solutions that are easy to understand. For example, IAM and SSO solutions are more complicated and confusing than other services.
  • Generally, the User Experience is lacking WITHIN services is poor compared to other comparable platforms, however high-level access to the many services in AWS is good - as compared to other platforms.
  • Some services seem fragmented - as interrelated functions withing services don't seem to provide detail weel without some work. The billing area is an example of where getting and reviewing information is difficult.

  • Pricing is certainly "enterprise" and therefore not be a fit for everyone
  • More use cases, examples, and tutorials would help given the limitless combinations of services and use cases

I would gladly rely on AWS for any large-scale application deployment. For prototyping and small-scale applications, a more heavily managed environment on top of the 'bare metal' virtual infrastructure, such as Heroku or Elastic Bean Stalk, is probably a more productive approach in most cases

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

Performance

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.

The API's were very well documented and was Janova's main point of entry into the services.

Alternatives Considered

AWS is usually the most affordable between GC, AWS, and Azure. If I was using a Windows machines only environment, I would go with Azure and for any other setup I would go with Amazon Web Services. For the record, AWS has been around longer than the others too

In an SAP-integrated enterprise project, SAP Cloud is a great solution. However Microsoft Azure is more flexible in terms of a scale of project & pricing, so may be superior for certain use cases, particularly where SAP integration is not necessary.

Return on Investment

  • I have seen people spend a lot of money just playing with AWS because they had no idea what they were doing. Pay attention, and know what you are getting into before you do anything.
  • My previous company was in the process of moving entirely to AWS, and I know it had to be cost effective because they had datacenters at over 20 locations.

  • It was quick and easy to evaluate the platform for our needs
  • Ultimately we did not move forward with the platform due to our project needs changing
