AWS CloudFormation

We create the resource stack with AWS CloudFormation. We can manage all the resources as a bundle. We can update the entire stack by updating the AWS CloudFormation template. It is very easy to delete the entire resource with AWS CloudFormation. If we do those resource creations and manage them manually, then we need to do lots of manual involvements. When we use AWS CloudFormation, we can reduce time to create and manage resources.

SAP on IBM Cloud

I preferably recommend IBM Cloud for implementing and migrating SAP applications for very competitive cost of cloud environment. It will help in digital transformation, both for competitive reasons and for operational excellence. The IBM Cloud offers excellent support and value-added features for getting [the] most out of the service. It is easy to implement SAP systems on IBM Cloud as compare to all other cloud environments. It offers lots of custom solutions and also intelligent and effective cost management.

SAP on IBM Cloud

  • IBM Cloud, like other clouds helped us to make a switch from Capital Expenditure model to Operational expense model.
  • Our existing infrastructure had availability, recovery and scalability issues. With IBM cloud we are able to speed-up recovery and minimize risk to business.
  • IBM also offered us a way to optimize the total cost of ownership without making any sacrifices on the business and IT needs.

Cons

AWS CloudFormation

  • Better examples
  • There are oddities with the yaml aspects of it, that make it a bit cumbersome
  • A template for use cases that are easily fillable - or just some place to start.

SAP on IBM Cloud

  • Initial triage on reported issues is effective in the way the right resources fit for the job are engaged. However, it can be faster.
  • From a customer perspective, we had knowledge gaps and initial challenges on defining a direction. IBM's support was critical in getting a foot hold.

Alternatives Considered

AWS CloudFormation

AWS CloudFormation has more features and robustness. It is suited for professional projects since it provides stability and a wide variety of options for configurations. These include not only dividing stacks by specific code changes, but also in regions. This allows more granularity and control over all stacks. If you want to delete them all just by a region, you can do it.

SAP on IBM Cloud

I have tested out both Microsoft Azure and SAP on IBM Cloud and can confidently say that SAP on IBM Cloud is the obvious choice. The key advantages of SAP on IBM Cloud compared to Microsoft Azure are that IBM Cloud offers free unlimited access to tech support, provides higher object storage space as well as unlimited private virtual servers.

SAP on IBM Cloud

  • Savings with the possibility of multiple tasks and services in the cloud. In this way, much of the work has been done online and so we don't lose focus and deadlines.
  • Reduction of expenses with the use of SAP in the cloud, as the resources saved have been applied in other areas, mainly prevention against COVID 19.
  • With data in the cloud, we also save on printing. The cost of this is enormous and now we only print what is really needed. Everything we've created has been uploaded to the cloud and anyone who needs the document can edit it even in the cloud or download it to a computer, mobile anytime, anywhere.

Additional Pricing Details
There is no additional charge for using AWS CloudFormation with resource providers in the following namespaces: AWS::*, Alexa::*, and Custom::*. In this case you pay for AWS resources (such as Amazon EC2 instances, Elastic Load Balancing load balancers, etc.) created using AWS CloudFormation as if you created them manually. You only pay for what you use, as you use it; there are no minimum fees and no required upfront commitments. When you use resource providers with AWS CloudFormation outside the namespaces mentioned above, you incur charges per handler operation. Handler operations are create, update, delete, read, or list actions on a resource.
