Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature is the backup ability. Most people are used to one type of backup solution that they're using, but most of these solutions have features that make it difficult to transfer to the cloud. I know that Veeam now gives people the opportunity to backup some on-premises solutions to the cloud. This feature is something that a lot of people are looking for.""This solution is used as the basic requirement for any virtual machines use cases, the storage is used for each use case.""I like that it helps us do everything really fast, and its advanced services.""The solution has very good Lambda functions within AWS.""The storage is most valuable. The gateway and documentation are also quite good.""The technical support is good.""It has a lot of new features that make our lives easier in terms of what we want it to do in the house.""We've built several AI ML solutions and done lots of work on the GPUs available on Amazon servers. We did a lot of work around web spidering, natural language processing, and machine learning or deep learning workloads."

"This solution is as good as any other S/4HANA SAP solution. The continuous support we get is very valuable.""The most valuable feature is virtual modeling, which is beneficial because you don't really save the data multiple times the way we did in the past.""The solution is stable and we have never had a problem. We started with one terabyte of data when the solution was first implemented and today we have around almost 600 gigabytes of data, which means means the compression works properly. Before migrating from ECC, we had nine terabytes of data.""Traditionally, SAP worked with Oracle databases, but SAP is getting rid of the other databases and promoting its own. SAP will stop support for other databases around 2026, so everyone is moving to SAP S/4HANA for the performance and because it's the preferred database for SAP. S/4HANA has new features from the front-end or application feature perspective. The idea is to move toward future-ready technology.""Fiori is the most valuable feature, as well as the the integration between S/4 and another solution as an extension.""The processes and the way we take advantage and use assistance are good."

Cons
"The availability could be better.""There's a huge cost for support.""The invoicing procedure of Amazon AWS needs to be improved. It can be difficult to manage.""The pricing could be a bit high at times. It's something they could improve upon.""The pricing structure can be improved and made more straightforward.""We would like to see if AWS includes any inbuilt automation. Also, we are very interested in AWS's AI/ML features, as well as IoT, AR, and VR.""The solution is pretty mature.""AWS support could be better."

More Amazon AWS Cons →

"SAP support isn't on par with products like Microsoft Azure or AWS. It's nowhere close to the competitors.""This product is not mature enough at this point in time.""The only thing that could be improved is the cost.""The solution is scalable from an infrastructure point of view. However, it becomes more complex over time because technology is changing so fast.""Perhaps minor changes to the enterprise structure could be made, but the rest is fine.""The cost could be improved. I think it's higher than the competition."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I think they've done a pretty good job with their pricing."
  • "Its price is kind of okay. When we do a migration from on-premises to the cloud, we typically use the lift-and-shift model. Based on the studies that we have done, cost savings are definitely there when we moved from on-premises to the cloud."
  • "The price could be lower."
  • "There are many variables involved in pricing service in AWS and overall the pricing is a bit on the higher side."
  • "AWS is not an expensive product."
  • "AWS is expensive and the cost should be reduced."
  • "Amazon AWS is really cost-effective."
  • "Licensing is on a yearly basis. I believe we are satisfied with the current pricing. Otherwise, we would have switched to another vendor."
  • More Amazon AWS Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "If you choose the minimum, it will probably cost around $1,000 USD per month if you take a contract for a year or two."
  • "The licensing of the solution is on a yearly basis. The normal price of the solution is quite high, but I received a special discount by making a purchase near the end of the year."
  • "The solution could be less expensive."
  • "The price is expensive compared to the competition."
  • "The price is high compared to other databases, which is why HANA is still not widely used. Some enterprises prefer Sybase, Oracle, or other traditional databases because HANA is a little pricey. Cost is one factor SAP needs to work on to make it more competitive with other databases. Otherwise, they'll never be able to develop a mass customer base."

    Overview

    Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of cloud computing services, also called web services, that make up a cloud-computing platform offered by Amazon.com. These services operate from 12 geographical regions across the world. The most central and well-known of these services arguably include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, also known as "EC2", and Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as "S3". Amazon markets AWS as a service to provide large computing capacity more quickly and more cheaply than a client company building an actual physical server farm.

    SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud is a fully scalable and secure private managed cloud solution. It empowers organizations to unlock the full value of SAP HANA in the cloud - accelerating growth and innovation, driving IT and business transformation, quickly delivering business outcomes, and reducing risk.
