CenturyLink Cloud Application Manager

It was very good to use in small scale projects. Considering the high end projects with many instances and multi-platform architectures, it is better to test before the application is deployed. I think few of the questions can be general - who are the system users and what size is the application focussing on? How much resources are required? Will the application require any additional services?

SAP Cloud Appliance Library

If you are evaluating SAP products, it is easy to get started with the SAP Cloud Appliance Library. Cost comparisons are provided. On-premise solutions are easily tested by non-IT users. It is simple to use at a low cost. I recommend anyone evaluating SAP products to try it out.

Alternatives Considered

CenturyLink Cloud Application Manager

Primarily because it used to have a good free tier earlier, which it does not anymore. It's simple, and things are available to use. Compared to it's competitors, it does has less features, but that kind of acts in its favor. That adds to the simplicity, and ease of use for a new user.

You could do it yourself, or wait for your hosting provider to provide it, but that takes time.
