NGINX

[NGINX] is very well suited for high performance. I have seen it used on servers with 1k current connections with no issues. Despite seeing it used in many environments I've never seen software developers use it over apache, express, IIS in local dev environments so it may be more difficult to setup. I've also seen it used to load balance again without issues.

SAP NetWeaver AS

I used other ERP applications as well prior to SAP or even after that. Its best comprehensive ERP application available in market which can integrated with multiple choice of application as the process/projects needs it. Felt Azure Data Lake Integration is best as it was really helps us to meet our objectives. In my cases it really must for any SCM based ORG.

Pros

NGINX

  • Very low memory usage. Can handle many more connections than alternatives (like Apache HTTPD) due to low overhead. (event-based architecture).
  • Great at serving static content.
  • Scales very well. Easy to host multiple Nginx servers to promote high availability.
  • Open-Source (no cost)!

SAP NetWeaver AS

  • SAP NetWeaver is very good at loading items quickly to view and edit.
  • SAP NetWeaver is very easy to navigate and is intuitive.
  • SAP NetWeaver is able to perform many different functions, from purchasing to HR and contract management.

Cons

NGINX

  • Customer support can be strangely condescending, perhaps it's a language issue?
  • I find it a little weird how the release versions used for Nginx+ aren't the same as for open source version. It can be very confusing to determine the cross-compatibility of modules, etc., because of this.
  • It seems like some (most?) modules on their own site are ancient and no longer supported, so their documentation in this area needs work.
  • It's difficult to navigate between nginx.com commercial site and customer support. They need to be integrated together.
  • I'd love to see more work done on nginx+ monitoring without requiring logging every request. I understand that many statistics can only be derived from logs, but plenty should work without that. Logging is not an option in many environments.

SAP NetWeaver AS

  • In the beginning, it's kinda hard to learn.
  • The reports are full of data but in some transactions there are missing options.
  • Not too easy for a custom format.
  • We are using an old version and the exports formats are too old.

Front end proxy and reverse proxy of Nginx is always useful. I always prefer to Nginx in overall usability when you have application server and database or multiple application servers and single database i.e. clustered application. Nginx provides really good features and flexibility which helps the system administrator in case of troubleshooting and also from the administration perspective. Also, Nginx doesn't delay any request because of internal performance issues.

Community support is great, and they've also had a presence at conferences. Overall, there is no shortage of documentation and community support. We're currently using it to serve up some WordPress sites, and configuring NGINX for this purpose is well documented.

I did not give SAP NetWeaver a 10, only because getting access to it initially can be tricky and sometimes it's very slow to load up.

Alternatives Considered

NGINX

We have used Traffic, Apache, Google Cloud Load Balancing and other managed cloud-based load balancers. When it comes to scale and customization nothing beats Nginx. We selected Nginx over the others because
  • we have a large number of services and we can manage a single Nginx instance for all of them
  • we have high impact services and Nginx never breaks a sweat under load
  • individual services have special considerations and Nginx lets us configure each one uniquely

Once ICM receives requests and forwards ABAP requests to the ABAP dispatcher and Java requests to a Java server to process. SAP NetWeaver Application Server is central foundation of SAP software stack. It provides a platform for other SAP NetWeaver Application Server components as well as for ABAP and Java applications

Return on Investment

NGINX

  • Nginx has decreased the burden of web server administration and maintenance, and we are spending less time on server issues than when we were using Apache.
  • Nginx has allowed more people in our company to get involved with configuring things on the web server, so there's no longer a single point of failure ("the Apache guy").
  • Nginx has given us the ability to handle a larger number of requests without scaling up in hardware quite so quickly.

SAP NetWeaver AS

  • Great ROI. We need to invest in new developments, making it more functional for our business.
  • We have requests that couldn't be duplicated. Maybe we need to pay to fix that.
  • We have a lot of transactions and don't have anyone that can guide us to the ones that we need to improve our business.
